Yes, the GOP picked up two seats in the U.S. Senate—assuming they stop “finding” votes in Broward County, FL—but Democrats were defending 10 seatsin states President Trump won just two years ago. Republicans couldn’t win deep-red Montana or West Virginia—and the GOP is so worried about the possibility they might lose the runoff in Mississippi next month that they’re sending another $1 million in TV money.
Meanwhile, Republicans held just two Senate seats that were competitive—Arizona and Nevada—and managed to lose both, while a Democrat came within 3 points of winning…in Texas.
Republicans lost seven governorships and control of seven legislative bodies, not to mention around 350 legislative seats.
And it’s not just where Republicans lost, it’s who.
