White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the Republican win in Arizona on Fox News Wednesday.
The win deals a blow to the Democrats hoping for a “blue wave” in the 2018 midterms.
“I think the big story here is a Republican won. It doesn’t matter whether you win by 25 points or 2 points. A win is a win and she’s gonna be in Congress and the Democrat’s not. And I think that there is plenty of enthusiasm and plenty of support out there for Republicans moving into the midterms, and the reason why is because we’ve actually gotten some really big things done.” (RELATED: Republican Debbie Lesko Wins Arizona Special Election)
“You look at the last year and a half under President Trump’s leadership–the economy is booming, the judiciary is being remade, ISIS is on the run, the economy is at the strongest point we’ve seen in a long time. Unemployment is down in sectors that we haven’t seen before, whether it’s Hispanics, African-Americans, women.”
