Why is every race a "test case for the GOP?"

Why is every race a “test case for the GOP?” They last I checked, the GOP controlled 28 of our 50 State Governorships, the House, Senate and the Presidency. It strikes me odd then to continually see every race labeled a “test case for the GOP?” The GOP has proven, and continues to prove, itself as the party aligned with the majority of Americans. The Democrats are those lacking traction with the American people and needing to prove they can win elections.

A “test case for the GOP?” No. It is the Democrats who need to prove they can hold onto a Democrat seat, in a shrinkingly Democrat state, or continue their slide out of touch with the American people.
