(AbsoluteNews.com) – The 2022 midterms are right around the corner and Republicans are hoping they’ll be able to take back the majorities in both houses of Congress. It seems Democrats are trying to help them do that by implementing terrible policies across the country that are making people unsafe.
Crime in the US has surged in the last year. The increases came as police were attacked by the Left and departments were defunded. If Republicans get their messaging right, they can use the rising crime to their advantage as proof that the anti-police policies of the Democratic Party are dangerous.
Former Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones is a Trump supporter who recently pointed out the increase in crime in Atlanta. On Monday, May 24, he announced he plans to challenge Gov. Brian Kemp in the 2022 Republican primary.
Violent crime in the city of Atlanta is up 65%. Aggravated assaults are up 45%.
Democrat policies are burning this city to the ground, while @BrianKempGA looks on from the balcony of the Governor’s Mansion.

GOP strategist Jon Gilmore told the Washington Examiner that the Republican Party should keep talking about how important the police are in the lead-up to the 2022 midterms. That could be just what they need to put the final nail in the coffin of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) majority.
