Republicans had excellent results in Tuesday’s high-stakes Senate races, winning numerous tough battles to preserve their majority in the chamber for the next two years.

But Tuesday’s results revealed an interesting dynamic: The Republican Senate candidates who rejected President-elect Donald Trump and tried to go it alone were the only ones who ended up losing their races.

Overall, there were eight Republican-held seats and one Democrat-held seat that were competitive going into Tuesday night: Illinois, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Missouri.

Of the nine Republicans in these competitive races, six of them stood by Trump or, in the case of Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, didn’t reject him. Three of them, though, explicitly rejected Trump: Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, Mark Kirk in Illinois, and Joe Heck in Nevada.

    Rhino’s the bunch of them who rejected Trump and fostered ill feelings amongst us who held strong in support of Trump even when told by the Republican Party he wouldn’t win. We did win and Kelly Ayotte has always been iffy in my opinion and more Rhino than Republican so sorry you lost. Actually we won and won decisively and a new dawn is upon us. Trump was not perfect, but next to Hillary looked like the second coming of Christ, and thank god.

    The Bushes, KaSICK, Romney, Ryan, and others that rejected Trump have destroyed any political future they may have had and their reputations as well. Some broke their oaths to support the Republican candidate. Some will leave the GOP and join the Democratic Party in an effort to regain some status, but that may only have a small chance of helping them in the future. I, for one, will be calling my House representative and requesting that he vote against Ryan keeping his chair as the Speaker of the House. Ryan has shown himself to not be a Conservative and in Obama’s pocket. He is not to be trusted!!!!
