Republicans scrambled Wednesday to explain what happened in Pennsylvania, as a Democrat stood on the verge of a monumental win in a U.S. House special election that became a test of President Trump’s political clout.

While the race was still too close to call, Democrats were declaring victory as their candidate, Conor Lamb, clung to a narrow lead over Republican Rick Saccone.

The head of the House Republican campaign arm called the contest a “wake-up call,” according to a Republican present for his remarks.

Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio briefed House Republicans on what happened in the district, which Trump won in 2016 by almost 20 points, and what it means moving toward the November midterms, according to the Republican familiar with his remarks, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe a private session.

“This is a wake-up call. If you’re getting outraised, this is a wake-up call. Prepare to bear down,” Stivers said, according to the Republican.

One can expect many more retirements coming.

Okay, so what are they going to do?  They have shown they won't stand up against Trump.  The wackos are running the place.  The NRA will not allow them to support common-sense gun control, which is starting to look like the signature issue for this year.  And Trump will inject himself into races all over the country even though he's 0-for-2 in races that the Republicans simply could not lose.

Maybe losing a couple more elections they should win will make GOPers realize Trump is not worth defending. I know they are still giddy about the tax cuts and running scared of the NRA so it is doubtful. Probably will take decisive midterm victims before they figure it out. They are slow learners  and, like Trump, always have an excuse.
