More on Midterm Elections

Andy Busch has written another article in his series on midterm elections. This time, he focuses on the election of 1910 in which the progressive Republicans formed a coalition with the Democrats that effectively stripped President Taft of power and was a precursor to Wilson’s victory in 1912.

A nice illustration of why we should never let the Democrats have any more power than they already have. While we can always hope that losing Congress will knock some sense into the Republican "leadership," that is a risky bet. What we do know is that the Democrats know how to use whatever power they have. They are highly effective at it. That’s why we need to win every race, in every year, that we can.
