She's openly bi-sexual yet the Republicans didn't even bring that up because of... Stormy et. al.

That's the new GOP normal from now on until forever. Religious conservative Republican voters who still think their SCOTUS bargain was worth it should remember this.

Remember, NeverTrumper's and "principled" Republicans would rather have a nutjob social justice Marxist in Congress so they can "check" Trump! Mission accomplished. Shame it won't work out the way you think it will.

Can't wait for Flake and the Ghost of McCain to work against Trump in 2020 by fielding a "Conservative (In Name Only) to show people that a (Paycheck) Conservative can be "nice." Thus splitting votes and letting an open Marxist/Socialist take the Presidency.

But at least you all showed that mean, nasty Trump a thing or two!

Thanks guys!

Does anyone else think that it's wild that so many new votes showed up during the recount? By no means am I calling fowl, but this gives little confidence in the system if the vote can have that much of a swing between the initial count and a recount.

The west has been changing for years and will continue to do so, the result of huge net migration gains from the coasts. The GOP seems to ignore migration forgetting where migration typically originates within the country.

This one should worry the pants of any Republican. The people of Arizona would rather vote for someone who hates Arizona than vote for a republican...

I wish I could say for sure why but God that's an impressive defeat.
