GOP loses the Senate, thanks in part to Tea Party

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

If not for the Tea Parties, the GOP had an outside possibility of winning the Senate. Instead - due in part to the Teapartiers - the Democratic Party remains in charge of the U.S. Senate.

In Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill beat the Teaparty candidate Todd Akin.

In Indiana, Rep. Joe Donnelly handily beat Teaparty candidate Richard Mourdock.

In Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown. While Brown ran from Teaparty ideas, his campaign and supporters did things in a very Teaparty way: concentrating on "Fauxcahontas" and other issues instead of simply showing how Warren is wrong on policy.

Perhaps one day the GOP will realize that pandering to small-tent, anti-American, sociopathic ideas such as those of the Teapartiers is not a winning strategy.
