We're All Focused On The 2016 Election - But If The Russians Set Up Shop In....

2014 - did they have some effect on the 2014 midterms.

From Wikipedia:

The midterm elections of 2014 saw sweeping gains by the Republican Party in the Senate, House, and in numerous gubernatorial, state, and local races. The Republicans gained control of the Senate for the first time since 2006, and increased their majority in the House.[6] The Republicans also gained two seats in governors' races.[7]

Overall, the elections resulted in the largest Republican majority in the entire country in nearly a century, with 54 seats in the Senate, 247 (56.78%) in the House, 31 governorships (62%), and 68 state legislative chambers. Moreover, Republicans gained their largest majority in the House since 1928, the largest majority in Congress overall since 1928, and the largest majority of state legislatures since 1928.[8][9][10]

Could the Russians have been the reason for this Repug sweep?

1. No doubt, they just have to vote purge. EACH STATE should be looking at provisional ballets

... and seeing if there's a marked increase in the last 10 years in some states.

2. I agree with you 100%.

However, it will never happen in my state, since both houses and the governor's mansion are filled with repubs.
