Low IQ and tennis shoes beat...

Republicans at family values campaigns?  One might think so after the Democrats picked up two more Senate seats in supposedly Republican states;

Patty Murray's stint as the Senate Democrats' chief strategist this election culminated Wednesday with her party expanding control of the chamber by two seats, thanks to two Democratic wins not even Nate Silver, the political forecasting whiz, expected.
The victories by incumbent Sen. John Tester in Montana and by Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota mean Democrats will have a 54-45 edge in the Senate in January. 
 ....[Murray] said Wednesday that the election vindicated her strategy as chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee to recruit candidates who reflected the American electorate.
"I really went out to find people who understood what was happening to families in this country," Murray said.
A more relevant question for the future of the USA might be, does the country look more like Patty Murray (usually winner of the dubious distinction of being the 'dumbest person in the Senate') than your average Republican?
