"The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political "leaders" like Sen".

As Politico's Ally Mutnick and Elena Schenider write, "Traditionally, state legislators and political mapmakers rely heavily on recent election results for clues about how communities will vote in the future - baselines they use to gerrymander advantageous districts for their party".

Prominent congressional conservatives, including senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley, were among the Trump loyalists speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando.

It deteriorated further last month, after Republicans lost Senate control with two Georgia runoff defeats they blamed on Trump, followed by the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters.

CPAC is an event organised by the American Conservative Union, whose chairman, Matt Schlapp, is close to Mr Trump.

When Trump first announced his presidential campaign, Mexico was a main target of his.
