Mitch McConnell is worried that Senate Republicans will pay dearly in 2022 for supporting Trump’s bogus claims of election fraud.

The Washington Post’s Paul Kane tweeted:

Senate Republicans are now in a no-win situation. If they cast a sane vote against the election challenge, the MAGA crowd will try to primary them, and some of these Republican incumbents should be worried about a primary. If they vote with Hawley, they will avoid a primary but label themselves as enemies of democracy for the 2022 general election.

Mitch McConnell only cares about keeping the Senate Majority, but the wheels have been set in motion on a Republican doomsday scenario. If Democrats win the runoff, and several Republican incumbents have votes against democracy hanging over their heads, the GOP could end up facing a midterm bloodbath.

McConnell tried to keep his caucus out of this mess because he knows that all the outcomes are bad, and now Senate Republicans could be heading for disaster because Josh Hawley wants to run for president in 2024.
