Fox News web host Sean Hannity blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky. ) over comments he made about Republicans’ chances of taking control of the Senate in November.
McConnell stated Thursday that Republicans have a better chance of flipping the home than the Senate in the midterms, saying that “ candidate quality has a lot to do with the end result. ”
“ Democrats are painting His party Senate candidates in forthcoming elections and midterms because cruel and out of touch, ” Hannity said Fri. “ Well, apparently United states senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is content to leave them out to dry and fend for themselves. ”
“ Listen to these types of comments, they’re very motivating, ” he said before playing a clip of McConnell’s remarks.
Sen. McConnell: “Senate races are just different… candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome. ”

Hannity noted Democrat management wasn’t making any important comments of its own united states senate candidates, such as John Fetterman in Pennsylvania, who’s pressing unpopular and radical plans and is not able to coherently speak at campaign events following his stroke.
“ You don’t hear [Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.)] complaining about candidate quality in Pennsylvania, ” Hannity continued, referring to Fetterman.
“ How about you get out there, Mitch, and fight for your group? What’s your agenda, Mitch, or would you rather just sit by and watch helplessly as Democrats lie to your face, pass another $250 billion green energy boondoggle? ”
“ His time as a head needs to come to an end, ” Hannity concluded.
It appears McConnell is more at ease with remaining minority leader within the senate rather than risking an opportunity for Republicans to take over without him remaining inside a leadership role.
