Rand Paul brands key Democratic losses as #HillarysLosers

Getting a jumpstart on 2016, presumed GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to Facebook last night to lay blame for several Democratic losses squarely on the shoulders of likely Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. While most election analysis has focused more exclusively on what the election means for President Obama, Paul tweeted that, "Today voters sent a message to Pres. Obama & Hillary Clinton, rejecting their policies & often, their candidates."

Paul's Facebook post featured photos of Democratic losers Rep. Bruce Braley (Iowa), Michelle Nunn (Ga.), Alison Lundergan Grimes (Ky.), and Sens. Kay Hagan (N.C.), Mark Udall (Colo.) and Mark Pryor (Ark.) stumping with Clinton. He also gave a brief interview to Breitbart on the topic, saying, "Somebody should ask Hillary Democrats why they got wiped out tonight. Clearly, Hillary is yesterday's news."
