Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) discusses the lessons of the 2022 midterms for Democrats and Republicans.
“The cruelest irony of the midterm elections is that New York was the only place where there was a clear red wave,” he tells Mosheh, noting that Democrats are ignoring public safety and crime worries at their own peril. In fact, Republicans may end up clinching the House because of the seats they were able to pick up in NY on Tuesday.
Torres also talks about his concerns about the close results in the state and why they might mean that Republicans like Ron DeSantis may try to compete in the traditionally blue state in the 2024 presidential election.
Torres, 34, is one of the youngest members of Congress. He also speak about his feelings on whether President Biden should run for re-election in 2024 and whether it is time for a new generation to lead Democrats in Congress to replace Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
