A County Sheriff just changed Chuck Schumer’s life forever

Chuck Schumer has become inebriated by power in Congress. But his house of cards is about to fall.

Because a County Sheriff just changed Chuck Schumer’s life forever with one announcement.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is a prime example of how easy it is for politicians in Washington, D.C. to become corrupted.

Typically when someone thinks about career politicians, they think about Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Chuck Grassley, Mitch McConnell, and many others.

But Schumer has been in Congress for 41 years consecutively. First as a House Representative from 1981 to 1999, and now as the U.S. Senator from New York from 1999 to the present.

The real turning point of his becoming drunk with power came when he became the Senate Minority Leader for the Democrats back in 2017.

Now that he’s been the Senate Majority Leader since January of 2021, he’s been ruling over the Senate like a dictator who simply will not tolerate any going ons within the Senate that he doesn’t approve of.

But the Democrat majority in the Senate is extremely thin and in the 2024 election cycle, 21 Democrat incumbents will be defending their seat compared to just 10 Republicans.

Two independents who caucus with the Democrat Party will also be defending their seats.

Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) is one of the Democrats who will be up for re-election in 2024. She changed her party affiliation from Democrat to independent in December, leaving herself particularly vulnerable to a challenger in the 2024 election season.

And her first major opponent has finally announced their candidacy.

A County Sheriff from Pinal County, Mark Lamb, made his candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat in Arizona official this week. He will be running as a Republican.

The seat currently held by Kyrsten Sinema is extremely important because Sinema caucuses with the Democrats, which means her seat counts for Democrat majority.

The Democrat Party will not be supporting Sinema this time around now that she’s officially politically independent, and she would most certainly split the vote if a major Democrat intends to run against her.

That could give someone like Mark Lamb a straightforward path to the U.S. Senate and flipping a critical seat.

If Sinema’s seat flipped, that would bring the Senate back to a straight 50-50 split with Vice President Kamala Harris being a tie-breaker for majority. But that’s only the case if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris manage to win re-election.

If Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, or Nikki Haley (the three leading Republican candidates) were to beat Joe Biden, the Republicans would have that tie breaker with a Republican Vice President.

This is all assuming Republicans flip only one seat, even though they are defending less than half of the seats that the Democrats are defending in the Senate in 2024.

Some political pollsters are saying it’s likely that the Republicans will flip more than 1 or 2 seats in the Senate.

All of this means Chuck Schumer’s time with major power in the U.S. Senate would be over very quickly. And the Democrat Party might be prepared to move on from Schumer as a Democrat leader in the Upper Chamber if they deem his leadership ineffective.

Mark Lamb’s announcement in Arizona could very well be the first domino to fall that will lead to the end to Chuck Schumer’s long career in Washington, D.C.
