    This idiotic newcomer, a former football coach totally clueless in politics, will soon understand that he shouldn't be defying Mitch McConnell. Anyway, if he is silly enough to do this, here is what will happen:

    The effort will fail, 100% guaranteed, because both chambers need to approve the challenge, the House is controlled by Dems, and even in the Senate, several Republican senators have already said they will vote against any challenge (last time I counted, 8 of them, already).

    So the only thing that this will accomplish - and the reason why Mitch doesn't want it - is that it will expose the GOP senators by forcing a vote (which the challengers will never win). The ones voting for the challenge out of fear of Trump, will attract money from leftists given to their opponents in primaries, to punish them for trying to subvert democracy. The ones voting against it, will incur Trump's ire and his supporters will challenge them in primaries.

    So double jeopardy for the G.O.P. senators. It's kind of karma... if they want to self-destruct, let them.

    What an idiot. Another newcomer who has no clue (like AOC in the Dem side).
