On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced it’s “possible” that the Republicans could screw up their odds of retaking the Senate this fall, pointing to some “bizarre” candidates of the past.

“This atmosphere for Republicans is better than it was in 1994. So from an atmospheric point of view it’s a perfect storm of problems for the Democrats because it’s an entirely Democratic government,” McConnell announced at a Kentucky Chamber of Commerce event.

In 1994, Republicans won the House of Representatives back after 40 years and took control of the Senate. “Which leads you to ask the question, how could you screw this up? It’s actually possible,” McConnell went on. “We’ve had some experience with that in the past.” "You can’t nominate somebody who is just sort of unacceptable to a broader group of people and win,” the Kentucky Republican continued.

For instance, McConnell pointed to numerous cases from 2010 and 2012, including Delaware GOP Senate hopeful Christine O’Donnell, who lost to Democrat Chris Coons in 2010, and Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharon Angle, who lost the same year to then-Democratic leader Harry Reid.

Todd Akin, who allowed Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill to win re-election in 2012, and Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock of Indiana, who beat incumbent GOP Sen. Dick Lugar in a 2012 primary, just to be bested by Democrat Joe Donnelly in the general election.

McConnell, who has been at odds with former President Donald Trump since the ex-President declined to concede the 2020 election, denounced Trump for not backing the bipartisan infrastructure bill. He called the law a “good thing to do.”

“Our former President apparently did not want anything to happen during his successors’ Administration, so he came out against it,” McConnell announced. “I never felt if you don’t have the White House you can do nothing.” McConnell was among 19 GOP senators who voted for the passage of the bill.

He described how the infrastructure bill featured the most popular provisions in a bigger spending bill pitched by the Democrats while continuing that he wished Biden’s social spending Build Back Better bill remained dead. “I don’t know if it’s dead or not, but I would like to smother it if I knew how to do it,” McConnell announced.

This week, Trump continued to attempt to play kingmaker in the 2022 races. Republicans need to pick up one seat to break the Senate’s present 50-50 tie. Democrats have a majority because Vice President Kamala Harris, in her position as President of the Senate, can cast a tie-breaking vote.

Meanwhile, on Saturday night, Trump upset Pennsylvania conservatives by endorsing the more moderate Republican candidate, TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz, for the state’s open Senate seat.
