“The suburban losses seem to continue in some places,” Graham noted Wednesday morning as Republicans started to digest Tuesday’s results. “I think when you look into [it], it’s more about tone and style than it is about policy.”…
“I would urge the Trump campaign to look into the bleeding in the suburbs, absolutely. It’s just a dynamic you can’t ignore is real,” Graham said.
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), an adviser to Senate GOP leadership, called Tuesday’s results a “wake-up call,” especially in terms of the need to win back suburban voters.
“I don’t see it as any kind of catastrophic election or anything, but you know wake-up calls sometimes come in a midterm or a primary. And this is probably a bit of a wake-up call to find that way back to the suburban voter,” she said.
