Louisiana Republican Julia Letlow was just sworn in and that is bad news for the Democrats because their majority in the house is now razor thin.
The Democrats now have a majority of only six votes.
The 2022 midterms are starting to look very good for the Republicans.
The Daily Wire reports:
As Republican Julia Letlow Is Sworn In, The Democrats’ Margin In The House Shrinks To Just 6 Votes
With Representative-elect Julia Letlow — a Republican in Louisiana — due to be sworn in to the House of Representatives on Wednesday morning, the Democrat Party’s majority has shrunk to just a few seats. The Democrats currently have just 218 seats to the Republican Party’s 212.
Julia Letlow won a special election in March to fill the seat which was originally won by her late-husband Luke Letlow, who passed away from COVID-19 in December before he was sworn in.
“[Letlow] took 62 percent of the vote in the 12-way race, a commanding victory that cleared the majority threshold needed to avoid a runoff. Her election brings the number of Republican women in Congress to 31 — a stunning turnaround from the end of last cycle, when there were just 13,” reported Politico in March.
Letlow’s victory hands Republicans 212 seats in the House of Representatives, placing them only 6 seats behind the Democrats’ 218 seats.

Congratulations, Congresswoman Letlow.
Today as I start my journey in Congress, I choose hope. I want to be part of a revival of honesty, integrity and hard work within these hallowed halls. I will stand up for what is right and true, bringing hope of a better tomorrow for my children, and yours. pic.twitter.com/p3vSinttXG

The Democrats certainly aren’t helping themselves by continuing to call for the defunding of police.
