“As midterm elections go, for champions of individual liberty this one could have been worse. I see two bright spots. The likely slim majority of Republicans in the House could — maybe — produce a measure of gridlock on domestic spending and regulation, and the blame for the Republicans’ substandard midterm performance might fall entirely on Donald Trump, driving him from the stage. When you consider all the possible outcomes from Tuesday, that’s not bad. In most midterm years the only outcome worth hoping for is gridlock.” (11/11/22)
