According to the United States Election Project, over 40 million Americans have already voted in the midterm elections. With only one day left in the midterm elections, Real Clear Politics has the GOP with 53 Senate seats when the votes are counted and picking up at least 15 in the House races to take their total to 227, with the Democrats winning 174, reports the Daily Mail.

High interest rates, inflation, tremendously high gas prices and insufferable crime and homelessness are among the reasons it is believed Republicans will be victorious tomorrow. The Election Project also states the 40 million early voters far outnumbers the levels from 2018, suggesting there could be a record turnout.

The Daily Mail also notes that despite Democrats’ cries that new Georgia voting laws upholding election integrity would “suppress” voters and decrease turnout, nothing could be further from the truth. Georgia witnessed over 2.5 millions voters showing up early.

Candidates for the Senate in the key swing states of New Hampshire, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia are separated by less than one point in the closing polls. Daily Mail adds that “Surveys have also shown white suburban women, black and Latino voters moving to the Republicans, fed up with rising prices and surging violence across the country.”

Politico also has Republicans taking upwards of 15 seats in their final projection while they consider the Senate a ‘toss-up’.

Real Clear Politics have the GOP winning 54 seats in the Senate, but still considers it a ‘dead heat.’ Daily Mail notes all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are up for grabs on Tuesday, as are 35 U.S. Senate seats and 36 governorships, but it may take Americans up to a month to know which party will be in control of the United States Congress due to the incredibly close races.

Specifics to control the House and Senate include: “Republicans would need to pick up five seats to take a majority in the House and just one to control the Senate. Nonpartisan election forecasters and polls suggest Republicans have a very strong chance of winning a House majority, with control of the Senate likely to be closer fought as voters say they are most concerned about the economy.”

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
