The biggest political losers of 2023

  • Politics in America is fundamentally competitive, with winners and losers emerging every time.
  • Virginia Democrat Susanna Gibson lost her seat in the Richmond region by less than 1,000 votes.
  • Joe Biden is juggling an impeachment investigation and dismal polling ratings.

Politics in America is fundamentally competitive, with winners and losers emerging every time. Among the prominent political losers of 2023 were Joe Biden, Susanne Gibson, Glenn Youngkin, Rashida Tlaib, George Santos, Joe Biden, and Kevin McCarthy, among others. Lori Lightfoot was the former mayor of Chicago.

Self-inflicted wounds dogged Lori Lightfoot’s re-election campaign, including bipartisan backlash over her handling of the COVID-19 outbreak and criticism of municipal authorities for the city’s escalating violent crime rate.

Political losers

Although Glenn Youngkin’s unexpected win over former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe catapulted him into the national spotlight, he bet his whole political career on Republicans taking control of the general assembly in November. The Virginia Senate was still under Democratic control, but the Democrats managed to flip the House of Delegates.

After it was revealed that she and her spouse had been broadcasting pornographic videos on social media, Virginia Democrat Susanna Gibson lost her seat in the Richmond region by less than 1,000 votes.

As a result of Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel and Israel’s military response, which prompted a bipartisan House censure in November, Rashida Tlaib, the sole American Palestinian in Congress, has been isolated this year.

The issues surrounding George Santos, a financially suffering former House representative, dominated the news. He was accused of wire fraud and caused the cancer death of a military veteran’s dog, among other problems.

When he arrived in Congress, his background rapidly came apart, revealing that he had lied about his education, employment history, and lineage.

Santos’ time in the House came to an end on December 1st when he was expelled by a two-thirds majority vote due to criminal accusations about the misuse of campaign funds.

The nation’s eighty-year-old commander-in-chief, Joe Biden, is juggling an impeachment investigation and dismal polling ratings. His efforts to persuade voters that he is qualified for another four years in office are ongoing, and progressive indignation at his backing of Israel in its conflict with Hamas has resulted in early polls that paint a bleak picture of his chances of winning reelection.

In an epic three-day voting marathon, Kevin McCarthy launched his 2023 campaign to split the House GOP Conference and take the speakership. McCarthy is optimistic and wants to continue playing a big role in the GOP fundraising scene despite his grudges.
