Let’s hope Republicans keep outsourcing candidate recruitment to Peter Thiel
With the race having officially been called, let us remember that Blake Masters is one incredibly creepy and ghoulish motherfucker, even for a fascist crank associated with Peter Thiel:

Hard to believe this didn’t play in a largely urban swing state!
While we’re on the subject, it’s also worth noting that while Thiel’s hand-picked Ivy League creep did goosestep across the finish line in Ohio, he ran almost 10 points behind the party’s gubernatorial candidate and required a a massive bailout from scarce resources in what should have been a completely safe Republican seat in this context. (We should also note that Ryan was a good candidate who ran a good race, but the headwinds were just too strong.)
And finally, I’ll have more on this once the race is called, but it’s sure looking like the Thiel-funded fascist goon Joe Kent is blowing WA-3, a district Trump carried by 4 points and Herrera Butler carried by 13 and that if anything probably got redder in the redistricting. I really hope Thiel keeps intervening in Republican primaries — his instincts for finding people in his mirror image who therefore repel normal voters are flawless.
Anyway, this is all actually Mitch McConnell’s fault:
