Infrastructure Support a Winning Issue

Nov. 14, 2022 – According to Politico’s Weekly Transportation Report, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), maintains that GOP under-performance in the mid-term elections was in part because 19 Republican senators voted with Democrats for the infrastructure law. “What Republican leadership has done in this last year was they caved in on the debt ceiling, caved in on the gun bill, caved in on a fake infrastructure bill and we make it difficult on our candidates and we can’t do that,” Scott said on Fox News. But his words ring hollow. Among Republican Senate infrastructure law backers who faced voters this year, only Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is not yet assured of another term in Congress – and that’s mostly due to the state’s ranked choice voting system. The other Republicans all easily won reelection, along with the six House Republicans who voted for the law and made it to Election Day.
