Democratic strategist predicts ‘more polarization’ after midterms

Source Communications CEO Ken Frydman and Democratic strategist Doug Schoen weigh in on results of the 2022 midterms on ‘Fox News Live.’

With the death of Virginia Democratic Rep. Donald McEachin, the new Congress will begin with a vacancy until there is a special election to fill that seat. 

A reminder: You cannot be appointed to the House. 

McEachin’s untimely death does not give some breathing room to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., in his quest to become Speaker. The new Congress will begin with 434 members. The magic number for McCarthy continues to be 218 – an outright majority of the entire body.
