Two days after losing his bid for a second term, Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee said he was unsure whether he'd remain a Republican
. Chafee is a legacy who took over his father’s senate seat.
"I haven't made any decisions. I just haven't even thought about where my place is," Chafee said
Chafee said he stuck with the party in large part because it allowed him to bring federal dollars home to Rhode Island.
When asked if his comments meant he thought he might not belong in the Republican Party, he replied: "That's fair."
When asked whether he felt that his loss may have helped the country by switching control of power in Congress, he replied: "To be honest, yes."
He described attending weekly Thursday lunches with fellow Republican senators and standing up to argue his point of view, often alone. "There were times walking into my caucus room where it wasn't fun," he said.
"People don't like to step out," Chafee said. "They need a pack to go anywhere. That's not good for the country."
The country is better off with this nitwit out of office and so is Rhode Island.
