Trump Is the Republican Party’s Biggest Loser

By The Editorial Board, Wall Street Journal, Nov. 9, 2022 - What will Democrats do when Donald Trump isn’t around to lose elections? We have to wonder because on Tuesday Democrats succeeded again in making the former President a central campaign issue, and Mr. Trump helped them do it.

Trumpy Republican candidates failed at the ballot box in states that were clearly winnable. This can’t be what Mr. Trump was envisioning ahead of his “very big announcement” next week. Yet maybe the defeats are what the party needs to hear before 2024. ... In New Hampshire, the Trump-endorsed Republican Don Bolduc lost to Sen. Maggie Hassan, 53% to 45%, ... In Arizona the Trump-endorsed Republican Blake Masters trails Sen. Mark Kelly, 51% to 47%. ... In Georgia, the Trump-endorsed Republican Herschel Walker trails Sen. Raphael Warnock, 49.4% to 48.5%. ... Doug Mastriano, Pennsylvania’s Trump-endorsed gubernatorial choice, lost by 14 points. ...  he (Trump) has led Republicans into one political fiasco after another. (Read it all)

Rod's Comment: I agree with this WSJ editorial. While it appears Republicans will just barely take the house, it looks like we will likely lose the Senate.  As the editorial says this may be what the Party needs prior to 2024. I hope Trumpism diminishes and the Republican Party returns to its common sense, conservative values.  I want to be proud to be a Republican again.
