DSCC Statement On Expanded 51 Seat Majority

2022 is Best Senate Cycle For Democrats In Modern History

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Sen. Gary Peters released the following statement on Senate Democrats’ historic, victorious campaign cycle:

“Senate Democrats’ resounding victories have culminated in one of our best campaign cycles in modern history. We won because of the tremendous quality of our candidates, the strength of our message, and the results we have delivered for the American people. This cycle in state after state and race after race, voters stood with Senate Democrats – and now we have protected and expanded our majority.”

Background on Senate Democrats’ historic victory:

  • “If Ms. Cortez Masto, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Warnock hold on, Mr. Rubashkin added, it will be the first time that no Senate incumbent has lost a general election since 1914.” [New York Times, 11/11/22]
  • “It’s rare for the party that holds the presidency to gain Senate seats in a midterm. Happened to Rs in 2002, but the last time it happened to Ds, when they controlled the White House, was 1962. NRSC chair that year? Barry Goldwater.” [@daveweigel, 11/10/22]
