Many conservatives feel discouraged at the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for president of the United States but that doesn’t mean we should lose interest in the crucial election this November. Important Senate races in ten different states will impact our future security and prosperity, no matter who is elected to the White House.
If Hillary wins, a Republican Senate will be essential in stopping the most radical aspects of her progressive agenda, and blocking the nomination of any strident, leftist ideologues to the Supreme Court. If Trump wins, conscientious conservative voices will be necessary in the Senate to implement responsible free market reforms and to reshape the free-spending, big government, authoritarian elements of Trumpism.
Either way, Senators like Toomey in Pennsylvania, Johnson in Wisconsin, Portman in Ohio, Ayotte in New Hampshire, McCain in Arizona, Kirk in Illinois, plus open seat races in Florida and Nevada, will determine the survival of conservative ideals on Capitol Hill.
