The Repugs can still leave and the Democrats can make speeches until the cows come home. Unless I'm missing something.

20. In the short-term probably not much, but 2020 Rs have a lot of seats to defend in the Senate...

The thing with tsunamis is it's never just one blue wave...

The optics are already terrible for them. Democrats have zero interest in helping them rehabilitate their image with voters in order to save R skins from another shellacking.

21. I am not sure, but if all republicans leave.

The Democratic leader can call the chamber to order and conduct business. By keeping a republican in the chamber, a democratic takeover is stopped because the lone republican represents the majority party of the chamber.

Then it should be crystal clear to anyone with a functioning brain whose lawn they should be protesting on.
