He got something like 37%, which still indicates the number of republicans who have no regard for law, order and true patriotism.

I would imagine in ten years there will be enough of them in Congress to form their own caucus. Their lapel pin can be a combination of the Confederate flag, Gasdsen and a Back the Blue flag.

Thank you, WV.. I knew you had it in you, I've had friends whose fathers managed to get out of the mines and parlay night school into lucrative careers, proving there is nothing dumb about dumb hillbillies.

Well, unless they're that guy. He's definitely dumb.

He lost because his opponent, the incumbent Carol Miller, ran relentless television commercials reminding voters that back in 2016, Derrick Evans was a Democrat, who ran on the same ticket as Hillary Clinton and supported all of her woke policies!

The fact that he broke into the Capitol on January 6, 2020, was never mentioned.

...everyone there knew him as the legislator who stormed the Capitol.

"Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!” Derrick Evans said in a video he recorded on Jan. 6, 2021.

What's not to like about this crumb losing, for whatever reason? Miller was among the 139 House Republicans who supported Trump's attempt to overturn his 2020 election loss. This defeat resonates, no matter how his opponent took him down.
