voting in AmericaHouse Republicans have set an eye-opening fundraising record ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, a good prediction the American public will punish Democrats at the ballot box.

The National Republican Congressional Committee announced that it raised $45.4 million over the last three months, a record quarterly haul during a year without a national election, The Associated Press reported.

That total included $20.1 million raised in June, the highest-ever monthly off-year total.

All of that fundraising success comes against the backdrop of Joe Biden in the White House, since traditionally the party that occupies the White House witnesses big losses in Congress during the next election cycle.

Longtime conservative activist Richard Viguerie, who leads Conservative HQ, predicts tradition will win out and the GOP could see 50 freshmen in Congress when voters go to the polls.

“I think it's entirely possible we could pick up a 102 seats,” he adds. “I believe that's entirely possible because we want to look at things as they're going to be in November 2022, and it's going to be really, really bad for the country, for the Democrat Party, by then."
