GOP Doom & Gloom??
The Vice Presidential Debate typically carries minimal strategic value although it has created sparks in previous cycles. Yet every election step seems critical for the Trump Administration and Republicans in general including tonight’s festivities.
The White House clearly hangs in the balance but is hardly the only concern Republicans face. Democrats already enjoy a majority in the House of Representatives but that lead could increase next month. Meanwhile, The GOP is fighting to keep its tenuous Senate majority intact while also holding confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett in an effort to solidify a solid 6-3 conservative majority in the Supreme Court. Granted, the Democrats seem to have a plan to combat that advantage.
Bottom line, Republicans have much work too and ground to regain over the next three weeks or so. Even Texas, once the reddest of red states, is in play! It will be fascinating to see where the party goes from here.
