Some conservative bloggers and many of our readers have suggested that they will stay home from the polls this November as retribution for the Republicans’ shameful showing in Congress.
As an apparent answer to that argument, the guys at RedState took a look at who would chair Congressional committees if Democrats were in charge. It is enough to make you vote for Mike DeWine.
That said, I think some very smart people on the right are falling into the trap of looking at these local and state elections through such a national lens. Yes, national events and Congressional actions impact those races. But ultimately, what will matter, is how your guy voted. Urging Republicans to hit the polls or stay home is largely futile — if they have a good candidate, who well represents his district, they will turn out. If he is a RINO representing St. George, Utah, he will be sent packing.
