Chen: GOP Exceeds Expectations in Contests for the Senate


We’re still waiting for the dust to settle on this year’s elections, but one thing appears extremely likely: Republicans will retain control of the United States Senate.

Credit should go to Mitch McConnell and the leadership team at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. They were left for dead by many pundits and analysts before the election but managed to pull off an impressive victory—even though they were outspent by tens of millions of dollars in crucial races across the country.

Congratulations should go to incumbent Senators Susan Collins, Thom Tillis, Joni Ernst and Steve Daines, who appear to have won reelection. David Perdue of Georgia is close to victory, and—at least as I speak—challenger John James is running ahead in Michigan.

It was a good night for the Republican majority in the Senate. That will be hugely important, regardless of who wins the presidency.
