In a year that the Republican Party should have been a shoo-in during the 2022 midterms, as the midterms generally always turn to the party not in the White House at the time, the party is suffering from the criminal acts by Donald Trump and by their picks for SCOTUS overturning Roe v Wade. In a clear sign that they believe they will most likely not be able to flip Senate seats, funding to support several Senate campaigns is being withdrawn.

One of those races is in Pennsylvania, where Republican candidate Mehmet Oz somehow became the Republican primary and must face off with the popular Democratic candidate, John Fetterman. According to recent polls,

According to The Rolling Stone:

‘Republicans have been hoping to take control of the chamber this November, but if Fetterman wins in Pennsylvania they’d be losing a seat (that race is to replace retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey), and they stand to lose another should Johnson lose to Barnes in Wisconsin.’

The Wisconsin race between Mandela Barnes (D) and Ron Johnson (R) is expected to be close, but the GOP is pulling support for that race, as well. Polls show Barnes between two and four points ahead of his opponent. Trump won the state by less than a point in 2016 and lost by less than a point in 2020.

In Arizona, another swing state, Republican candidate Blake Kelly lags behind his opponent, Mark Kelly, by more than 10 points. It appears the GOP is seeing that race as a likely loss and have pulled funding for Kelly’s campaign, as well.

‘Polling averages have Masters trailing Kelly by more 10 points. There isn’t much polling for the matchup between Johnson and Barnes, but the race is expected to be a close one, making the NRSC’s move to cut bait — at least $2 million worth of it — all the more surprising.’
