Democratic victories in state elections last Tuesday are a reflection of voters’ dissatisfaction with “a completely inept Congress” — not anger with President Donald Trump, according to former Gov. Mike Huckabee.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,” the Arkansas Republican said outcomes in the governor races in New Jersey and Virginia were expected — but Democrats cutting into GOP majorities in state legislatures could be worrisome.

“They had a good week and I think it would be disingenuous for me or any other Republican to pretend it didn’t matter,” he said.

“You bet it mattered. [But] more so than the elections for governor in both New Jersey as well as in Virginia were the fact that you saw a number of seats within the legislature flip and that indicates something more important than simply one statewide race.”

“When you start seeing flips in the legislative branch that means you're talking local politics where it matters,” he added. “Here is the question. Was that President Trump? I think not.

“I think it's a completely inept Congress who is so far failed to deliver on even the simple things like tax cuts and tax reform, which ought be the easy lay up for Republicans in Congress.”
