The Right Opinion: Where is Joey Salads Now? The Prankster Who's Running For Congress | TRO
*Part that was missed*
The United States has a system known as congress, this is made up of the senate and the house, the senate is considered the more senior chamber, with more experienced individuals, elections ran through these are typically pretty notable, and chances are you’ve heard of your senator if you’re American, and vaguely interested in politics, the Senate is pretty exclusive with few senators often covering large areas. Joey isn’t running for that, he’s running for the lower chamber, known as the house. This is really the place where you enter into politics, chances are you won’t know many congresspeople unless you’re really involved, and there is a much greater number of them. Each state that would otherwise have two senators, is now much more split on the basis of population, some with such low populations that they’re not split at all.
But New York is a populous state, and New York the city is a populous city, so the 11th District that Joey is running for isn’t particularly large at all, and all quite local. People constantly see New York as the real Democratic bastion in many ways, but Staten Island doesn’t quite adhere to that formula. In fact, in the 2016 Election, Staten Island went Republican, with Donald Trump receiving approximately 57% of the vote to Democrat’s 40%, now the district does include parts of Brooklyn, which is likely democrat, but it still wasn’t enough to unseat the then Republican representative: Dan Donovan. No, that didn’t happen until 2018, when democratic war veteran Max Rose, defeated him in the midterms. And that’s the thing about House seats, they’re up for election every two years, so Joey could be running for 2020, which is just around the corner really…
But hell Max Rose is a war veteran, and an incumbent, it’ll be harder to unseat him if he’s popular. True, but at the same time, if the election’s on 2020, it’s very possible that people will be much more distracted by the Presidential election, and people may well vote in line with their Presidential vote, which if it swings in Trump’s favour, the Republican candidate may well win. However, with that said, there is certainly no guarantee currently that Joey Salads is the Republican candidate for the area, chances are there will be a more professional figure running against him, and he’ll have to prove that he is more desirable than them. But can he? And will his past come back to haunt him? And should it?
