State GOP Official Loses Party Post for Refusing to Back Donald Trump

So, even if the Democrats control the Senate starting in January, Republicans could still block a President Clinton's Supreme Court nominations and policy program. In 2018, the tables will be reversed and the Democrats will have 25 seats at risk, compared with only eight Republicans, a lot of them safe.

Hillary Clinton's biggest super PAC helper is following her lead and trying to help deliver a Democratic Senate.

Breitbart News has learned that the Ohio GOP's State Central Committee has issued a stand-down order on campaigning for Trump in at least two major counties.

Asked what politicians he would like to lead the new party he is looking to create, Wilson named politicians like McMullin, Oklahoma Sen.

But Jones said Portman and other Republicans who have abandoned their support are "not supporting the Republican Party".

Other analysts said that even if Iowa has a second election that favors Republicans, it's not necessarily an indicator of a long-term trend. "I think that the country would benefit greatly from Republican leadership right now, but [Trump] has now shown he is not the right one for it and is certainly not the right way forward in the future for the GOP".

I remember when the 2010 midterm election happened, and I was sitting inside the room at our headquarters, watching the returns coming in, and the excitement in that room when the Republicans finally took back the House from the Democrats, for the first time in years.

Kay Granger, the only Republican woman to have ever been elected to a full term in the U.S. House from Texas, is among the highest-profile defections".

As Ryan becomes the latest punching bag for his party's presidential nominee, the Wisconsin Republican has made the calculation that he faces little political upside in engaging in a back-and-forth with Trump.

"But these suburban-dwellers are also the voters likeliest to stick with Republicans down ballot", Wasserman said.

Yet right now, it's genuinely unclear how much influence Trump - and Trumpism more generally - will have in the Republican Party on November 9.

"It feels like a long-term trend, to be as subjective as I can about this question".
