One thing we can take away from this election is you cannot spend tons of money putting lipstick on a pig and fool the American voters:
Despite a deluge of campaign spending over the last few months by Republican-leaning outside groups, Democratic candidates and their allies have outspent Republicans over all on television advertising in House races, according to data provided by Kantar Media’s Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks political advertising. In Senate races, however, Republicans outspent Democrats.
We were told the Democrats were ready and would have the money to offset their failures this year. That myth is now busted, as all that money did not save the Democrat majority in the House.
