With Democrats in Congress facing strong headwinds in November’s midterm elections and President Biden’s approval ratings languishing in the low 40s, journalists have begun to ask what Republicans might try to accomplish if they regain full power in Washington in 2024.

Vance (Ohio) and Blake Masters (Ariz.). Together these figures amount to a “new right,” Sargent says, and its varying preoccupations are likely to shape the Republican Party over the years to come.
