This has already become a wave election year, because a record wave of departures by House chairmen already guarantees a sea change in the Republican power structure next January. Even if the GOP manages to hold on to its majority this fall, its policymaking muscle for the second half of President Donald Trump’s term will need some prolonged rehabilitation. And if the party gets swept back into the minority, its aptitude for stopping or co-opting the newly ascendant Democrats’ agenda will require some serious retraining.
Of particular note. Everyone hates to be a loser, or on the losing team.
