The Trump administration launched a "full court press" [big league] to get their hands on these two senators, but for now, Manchion appears as if he's staying back. This puts the onus on Heidi.
|One classy guy|
If she accepts Trump's offer, her seat could remain empty for months and Democrats would have even less influence during Trump's first 100 days in office when he hopes to replace a vacant justice in the Supreme Court.
In the long run, Senate GOPers would have a solid chance of winning Heitkamp's seat in a special election giving the Republicans a 52 to 48 majority.
In other good news, Harry Reid is retiring as Senate Minority Leader.
Don't let the door hit you . . . Harry.
