Is the Tea Party over?
It looked that way Tuesday night. After making a lot of noise throughout the campaign, not a single Tea Party candidate survived Senate and House primary races.
Republican voters overwhelmingly chose candidates endorsed by the GOP establishment.
Kentucky was the most notable race, where Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell crushed tea party favorite Matt Bevin.
It was a similar story in Idaho, where eight-term Congressman Mike Simpson beat out a challenger from the far-right.
Same with Oregon - the support of the GOP establishment pushed Dr. Monica Wehby to defeat a more conservative candidate.
In Georgia, the mainstream's top two senate candidates emerged from a crowded field, beating out Tea Party candidates to qualify for a July run-off.
