Sadly, a lot of states, like mine, are happy to stay poor and red.Most of those states though already know their Senators are safe. In other states though, states that are "purple", there is a much lesser advantage when it comes to the Senate. If you have states like mine, where the Governor is a Democrat, there is a big chance that the Senators can also be Democrats (at least one) or that the fights for the Senate are going to be close.
I honestly think the only reason Tillis is still a Senator is because Cunningham had that stupid affair that came to light, not because of this state being red (it is purple, thanks to places like Charlotte and the Triangle). This shows that Dems definitely need to be very stringent in their vetting process of their nominees. Get it all out on the table rather than hiding anything that could be bad. Unfortunately, those things do matter to voters, enough to make a difference.
