Because of the escalating border issue under President Joe Biden, two longtime Democrats recently stated they will seek re-election as Republicans.
Dale Carruthers, the justice of Terrell County, and Cinderela Guevara, the justice of Presidio County, both women who serve in border communities in Texas, expressed their anger at how Biden’s policies on the border have impacted their areas.
They claim that the Biden administration’s policies, which allowed more than 2 million individuals from over 150 nations to enter the country illegally over the southern border, are the sole reason they switched political parties. They have had enough with the crime that has resulted from an open border, including the smuggling of people, weapons, and guns, and have decided to take action, as described by Blankley.

Carruthers stated, “I come from a Hispanic heritage that was largely Democratic. The recent turmoil at the border and other events have convinced me that I need to change political affiliation. I’m proud to be a Republican and to serve as a judge in Texas.”
“I became a Democrat in 1992, Guevara proudly proclaimed. My first year running as a Republican after always being a Democrat. I appreciate everything Governor Abbott has done and is doing to help Texas, particularly at this time of crisis at the border.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “likely to resign” or “step back” after the midterms in November, according to persistent rumors.
Rep. Adam Schiff of California is reportedly positioning himself to succeed Pelosi as speaker if she decides to step down following the Republican takeover of the House. Pelosi, on the other hand, has declared her intention to run for reelection this coming November.
The Washington Post says that Schiff’s attempts have focused on solidifying backing among his home base in California, but also that he has not launched an open plea for endorsements.
Instead, the Post says Schiff is assessing members’ interest and sowing the seed that controlling the caucus is his goal.
Pelosi’s possible resignation was first reported by Maria Bartiromo of Fox News last year.
Bartiromo reported on Fox that she had heard from “sources” that Pelosi would be resigning if the Democrats passed Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan.
Sunday Morning Futures has learned exclusively that there is widespread chatter in Washington that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may resign after passing the big spending deal.
The speaker may be preparing a cut and run, she continued, “so all those Democrat lawmakers who had their arms pulled to vote on the multi trillion-dollar bill and put their own reelection in peril may be angry to learn that.”
The Atlantic reported in July that Pelosi would be leaving her position as Speaker “in the not-so-distant future.”
The article predicted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will announce her resignation “in the not-too-distant future,” most likely following the midterm elections.
Many Democrats in and out of Congress are expecting her senior aides to follow suit and retire soon. Naturally, they all have canned responses in which they flat-out refuse to believe that anyone is ever going anywhere, as The Atlantic put it. However, “that time will come.”
It stated that Democratic Congress members won’t talk about anything related to this publicly, as if Pelosi may suddenly emerge and pluck their hearts from their chests.
If Democrats keep control of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Democrat Rep. Hakeem Jeffries may become its next Speaker, according to The Atlantic.
“Pretty much every Democrat in Congress and beyond is certain that Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York will be the next speaker of the House if Democrats manage to hang on to their majority next year,” the article stated.
