“Well, there goes the fake news. It is real news that Republicans got shellacked on Tuesday in gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. And it is real news that President Trump’s grip as the party’s leader loosened for the first time since he claimed the White House. Republicans running in 2018 saw the reality of an anti-Trump wave among white suburban voters. House Republicans rely on votes from suburban areas to keep their majorities in states such as Pennsylvania, Georgia and Florida. Republicans currently hold 23 seats in congressional districts won by Hillary Clinton in 2016 and 11 in districts she lost by fewer than 5 percentage points.” (11/14/17)
