Donald Trump continues to go where no other former president has gone before, which includes holding a massive rally that had a whopping 20,000 attendees.

Republicans are hoping to take back Georgia in the 2022 midterm elections, and Trump’s rally provides a comforting sign for those wanting to help conservatives take back control of Congress.

Trump was accompanied by Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Herschel Walker, who will be critical to Republicans’ chances of taking the U.S. Senate in 2022

An estimated 20,000 people attended Trump’s rally, where he also left 13 VIP seats in the front row open to honor the 13 service members killed in the Kabul terror attack in August.

If Trump can pull in 20,000 Georgians during the political offseason and in the middle of college football, one can only imagine what kind of numbers Trump will put up next year.

Trump has boldly gone where no other former president has gone before.

The 45th President is relishing his role as “kingmaker” by, so far, issuing near 40 endorsements for Republicans running in elections in 2021 and 2022 for governor, senator, and down-ballot races.

He has used other endorsements to go after Republicans that he considers RINOs, or Republicans in name only.

Republicans are now “the early favorites,” to retake control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections.

Cook Political Report Senior Editor David Wasserman told NBC News that Republicans are poised to retake the lower chamber for a variety of reasons.

Last month, a top House Democrat warned that the Republican Party is in a prime position to take back House in next year’s midterm elections.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Sean Patrick, who serves as a congressman from New York, says Democrats would lose their House majority if the midterms were held today.

Speaking with Politico, Tim Persico, executive director of the Maloney-led DCCC, shared data with incumbents showing that several House Democrats are at risk of losing their seats to Republican challengers.

Democrats are facing serious headwinds going into next year.

Three-quarters of senior Capitol Hill aides think Republicans are going to win back control of the House of Representatives in the 2021 midterm elections.

Punchbowl News surveyed several senior Capitol Hill aides and reported that a whopping 73 percent think Republicans will take the speaker’s gavel from Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi next November.

Republicans need a net gain of 5 seats to regain the House majority in the midterms next November.

The GOP has another big advantage now: they are raking in historical amounts of money.

Republicans set a fundraising record for the third month in a row and now have $42.1 million in cash on hand with zero dollars in debt.

And the NRCC says it ended May with more than $42.1 million cash on hand – more than double the amount it had in its coffers at this point in the last election cycle – and zero debt.

House Republicans also have history on their side as they aim to regain the chamber.

The party that controls the White House, which is currently the Democrats, on average loses roughly 25 House seats in the midterm elections.

And the once-in-a-decade redistricting process – pegged to the 2020 census – is expected to generally favor Republicans over Democrats.
