In states that didn’t secede from the union during the Civil War, Republicans went 16-11 in Senate races last night. AK, CO, and WA still haven’t been called at this point, but I expect them to go Rep, Dem, and Dem, respectively. So, we’re looking at a ratio of 17-13. A solid night for the GOP, but by no means a “tidal wave.”
In states that did secede from the union, however, Republicans were a perfect 7-0. And they won by double digits in every one of those contests.
Again, just an observation. But one worth noting.
