HERE'S THE ILLUSTRATIVE NUMBER....:

Did the Tea Party Cost Republicans the Senate? (Brian Montopoli, 11/03/10, CBS News)

While we don't yet know the final results in some Senate races, we do know that CBS News projections show that Democrats will hold onto the Senate.

We also know that they might not have done so had two Tea Party candidates not won their GOP primaries. One is Christine O'Donnell, who rode the backing of the Tea Party Express to an upset primary victory over moderate Republican Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware.


...the Right also tried denying Kelly Ayotte the nomination in NH for being somehow insufficiently conservative. She won with 60% of the vote.
