  •  This is an admission of defeat. (0+ / 0-)

    I think he sees the writing on the wall about both the Demographic shift in US Politics against the GOP, and the end of the kind of filibuster and obstruction he so loved to abuse.

    He probably went into this election believing that he'd come out with a Senate Majority in his party, and instead, he's got an even stronger Democratic Party Majority that's sick of his shit.

    So, off he goes to sell conservatism where he doesn't have to win elections, or lead others to win elections.

    Simple question: In the years since Republicans successfully urged the disempowering of workers and unions in the Midwest, what has happened to those states economies?
