The "coat tails" of a presidential candidate that might tilt the
legislative branch towards the supposed agenda of a Billary White House
might belong to Trump as a Republican Party nominee, *negative coat tails*,
if there is such a thing, that some Republican legislators are dreading in
their pending re-election bids.  There are 24 Republican Senators up for
re-election 2016, only 10 Democrats.  From this perspective, some Democrats
are praying for a Trump nomination to head the Republican party, betting
Trump will lose big time, damage the Republican Party, and hand the US
Senate to the Democrats via Republican Senators being linked to Trumps
