Record Breaking Crop Of Pro-Trump Candidates Set To Crush Dems In 2020 Elections
A record number of new GOP candidates have filed to run for office for House and Senate seats in the upcoming 2020 election in November, a development sure to unnerve Democrats who are still reelling from Presidential primary which has so far been nothing less than an utter disaster. 

As Fox News reports:

A record number of candidates have filed to run for office in the House and Senate, breaking last cycle’s history-making numbers from the same point in time. But unlike the 2018 midterms when the surge was driven by Democrats, the congressional boom this time is on the Republican side, according to the latest federal candidate and financial activity report obtained exclusively by Fox News.

In 2019 alone, 781 Republicans filed federal paperwork to run for the House, the most ever recorded in an odd year at the Federal Election Commission. That’s up from 593 GOP candidates in 2017, when Democrats had an astounding 937 candidates at the same point.

Republican candidates across the country interviewed by Fox News said they feel momentum is on their side this time. Energized by President Trump and his impeachment acquittal, congressional hopefuls are making the case that Trump needs a fighter like them in the House or else the country will succumb to “socialist” Democratic plans.

“I'm tired of seeing my president attacked every day,” said Marjorie Greene, a GOP businesswoman and first-time congressional candidate running for an open seat in Georgia’s 14th district. “I'm tired of seeing our future threatened. I'm tired of seeing my children's future extremely threatened, and it’s time to get off the bench and really step up to the plate.”

Some critics have suggested that the massive crop of new candidates can be largely explained by many citizens being fed-up with liberals's bad faith attacks on the President as well as with the Democrat parties radical turn toward socialism.
