Fox News co-hosts Jesse Watters and Laura Ingraham asserted on Tuesday that there are “no scandals” that would cause voters to reject Republicans in the midterm elections.
Prior to polls closing on election night, Watters suggested to Ingraham that President Donald Trump’s era has been scandal free — unlike previous administrations.
“The Republicans have held the House for the last 20 of 24 years,” Watters explained. “You know, they only lost in 2006 as some of the scandals and the Iraq war was dragging on, but they got it back after Pelosi and Obama overreached.”
“Do you see right now — with no recession, no scandals, hot economy — do you see any reason substantively for Republicans to lose the House?” Watters asked.
“It was back to the scare tactics on Obamacare,” Ingraham said of the Democratic strategy. “That’s the one policy they really focused on. The separation of the kids at the border, I don’t think most people are going to vote on that.”
“I think most of the resistance voters out there are resisting the tone of Trump,” she continued. “They are resisting his personality. It’s like they are putting blinders on to all the great — there’s never a better time to be in America than today!”
According to Ingraham, “the left is so jacked to send a message to the president that, ‘Oh, no, we’re not going to be fooled again. We were embarrassed in 2016. We’re going to embarrass you now.’ It’s personal with the left.”
She added: “And Republicans are all about charts and numbers and G.D.P. — the art of the storytelling is sometimes lost on Republicans.”

GOP scrambling to pay for Jacksonville convention after Trump yanked it from North Carolina: report
According to a report from the New York Times, Republican officials are having difficulties getting donors to pay for the Republican National Convention to be held in Jacksonville, Florida after Donald Trump yanked the gathering out of Charlotte, North Carolina in a fit of pique over COVID-19 health restrictions.
At issue, the report notes, is that millions of dollars were spent in North Carolina where a smaller event will now be held, and now the party is, in essence, forced to pay for a second convention.
As much of US marks a muted Independence Day, Trump encourages big parties

COVID-19 close to overwhelming Houston’s vast healthcare complex
Despite its claim to host the world's largest concentration of hospitals and research labs, the city of Houston is dangerously close to being overwhelmed by the explosion of coronavirus cases sweeping across Texas.
Since the Memorial Day weekend in late May and major anti-racism protests in June, "it is an unbelievable trajectory," as if the flood gates had opened, said Faisal Masud, director of critical care at Houston Methodist Hospital.
Masud has been on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19 since it reached Houston.
"This has been relentless for us," he told AFP. "We didn't get a break."
