Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo just told a cheering crowd at the Idaho GOP election night watch party, “Any of you who have heard me talk during this election have probably heard me say that in this election, all three branches of the U.S. government are on the line. I came tonight anxious , anxious about my own race, anxious about the presidential race, anxious about our ability to maintain control of the Senate. The votes are not all counted yet. And I’m one of those who likes to wait and see. … I don’t want to jinx anything, but it is looking good.” After a huge cheer, he added, “It’s looking really good.”

“So let’s just all continue to keep saying our prayers, giving our support, and making sure that we get across this finish line,” Crapo said. “If we do, then we can not just start, but we can aggressively begin moving down that path to truly make America great again.”
