It wasn’t a great night or a spectacular night.
It would have been nice to win more Senate seats and have a larger House majority, but the only result that was ever in the cards for the next two years was gridlock and divided government. The single most important objective was always turning Joe Biden into a lame duck president.
If Herschel Walker wins his runoff, Republicans will have traded a Senate seat in Pennsylvania for a Senate seat in Georgia. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are both facing voters in 2024.
