Steve Bannon—former White House chief strategist for President Donald Trump—didn’t sound bullish on Republicans’ chances in the midterm elections on Tuesday.
In an interview with Independent Journal Review (IJR) published on Monday, Bannon said he was “very worried about Tuesday,” while also praising the energy displayed by liberals ahead of the vote.
“The Time’s Up movement, the resistance, the Tom Steyers. […] They literally have the urgency and the intensity of the Tea Party movement of 2010,” Bannon told IJR.
Bannon lamented that the GOP hadn’t built a good message around Republican tax cuts and said recent events would hurt them at the polls—notably the Trump supporter accused of sending bombs to Democratic leadership and the horrific mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
