    Voters replaced Democratic senators with Republicans in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia, and likely in Alaska, and appear on track to do so in a runoff next month in Louisiana.

Just like our musk ox, they circle up to protect their future when they are challenged. We've got to do the same.
