Nov. 2 was a boffo night for the Republican Party, and not such a great night for Donald Trump.

It’s not as though the interests of the two are diametrically opposed, but they are in tension. To the extent that the GOP shows that it can thrive without former President Trump being on the ballot or even at the center of attention, it undermines the idea that he, and only he, knows the secret to Republican success.
