PINE BLUFF, Arkansas—No sign announces the purpose of this little storefront, squeezed between a Bestway Rent to Own and a Rent-a-Center in a dilapidated shopping center. But the words hand-lettered in black and red marker on three pieces of paper taped to the window—”Register to Vote Here”—and a cluster of placards for candidates give it away: It is a Democratic Party field office.
Every day brings a new article about a different state being the “key to saving the Senate for the Democrats.”
Here’s a clue: There is no such state. The control of the Senate will flip from Democrats to the GOP a bit more than two months hence. The only question now is how wide a margin the GOP will achieve.
Well, there is another question: What will the GOP do with it once they’ve won it?
My guess? Gentry GOP business as usual. Two years from now Scamnesty will be in place, Obamacare will be unchanged, and Republican “leaders” will be claiming there was nothing they could do, so vote for them in 2016 for House, Senate, and the White House.
