14. Yes, they were. First of all, Trump himself, then...

...according to reporting, to spend tens of millions of dollars in swing states through Election Day, most focused on turning GOP voters against Trump and on Senate races.

How did the latter part turn out?

Trump garnered over 11 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, for a total that was higher than almost any candidate in history. Almost thanks to the very obvious exception, but as far as TLP is concerned, it doesn't point to them having any significant effect on reducing Republican vote counts.

2020 Republican turnout for Susan Collins was up by 4,000 votes from 2014, which was enough for her to handily defeat her opponent.

2020 Republican turnout for Joni Ernst was up by nearly 300,000 votes from 2014, which was enough for her to score a return ticket to the United States Senate.

2020 Republican turnout for Thom Tillis was up by over 1.2 million votes votes from 2014, which was more than enough for him to knock off his opponent.

Lindsay Graham sailed easily to victory by almost exactly doubling his 2014 vote total.

That doesn't speak well for their effectiveness in ousting Trump-enabling senators.

So where were they effective? Among Republicans, that is.
