The Next Republican Showdown


Michael Brendan Dougherty has an eye on the battles to come:

The Tea Party isn't the only force on election day. Moderate Republicans are looking to reclaim House seats in suburban districts across the country and have several Senate candidates. This is the most under-reported story of this election cycle, but it will have incredible consequences for Republican Congressional leadership. There will be a lot of endzone dancing by Tea Partiers tonight. But this new class of moderates will give them trouble sooner than they think.
