Behold The Wreckage of Hillary’s Midterm Drubbing

Last night, despite Hillary Clinton being touted as a top surrogate, the candidates she backed got routed, along with the Obama-Clinton-Reid policies they backed. Clinton’s policies and brand are becoming indistinguishable from the President in whose cabinet she served. Heading into 2016, Clinton looks like a candidate from the past who already lost the presidency once, and is running into political headwinds.

Just take a look at how the candidates with whom she campaigned fared:

  • She was touted as a savior for Kentucky Senate Candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes. She LOST by double digits.
    • *NOTE: Grimes paid $17,000 to fly Hillary to Kentucky to campaign for her. 
  • She campaigned down the stretch for IA Senate Candidate Bruce Braley. He LOST by 8 points in a state Obama won twice
    • *NOTE: Iowa Democrats paid $50,000 to fly Hillary to campaign for him. 
  • The Clinton brand was said to be gold in Arkansas. She and Bill campaigned for AR Senator Mark Pryor extensively. He LOST by SEVENTEEN POINTS.
