Michele Bachmann: Midterm results were ‘crashingly disappointing’ because Christians were ‘praying, repenting, preaching, and mobilizing’

During a livestream appearance with PrayVoteStand for their election coverage, former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann lamented the less-than-stellar performance of the GOP, saying the lead-up to this point has been a “really tough two years.”

“But what the church did is respond rightly, it responded by praying,” Bachmann said. “We had more Zoom calls set up over the last two years, just praying for the nation, people turning to the Lord, repenting of their sins, confessing their sins. We’ve seen pastors doing the right thing by preaching from the pulpit according to biblical values…”

Bachmann went on to say that “it just doesn’t make sense” for Republicans to underperform in light of how Christians prayed so hard.

“We’ll learn more, I think of course, in the days that are in front of us, but surely, this is absolutely not the result that was predicted almost uniformly by the pollsters, but wasn’t the result that I think any of thought was gonna happen tonight,” she said.

“It’s been not only traditional, but I would say crashingly disappointing, because this really should have been a [red wave] election, and now it doesn’t even look like we’re dog paddling.”
