Perhaps more important to overall Senate function is popular election of Senators rather than appointment by state legislature. This deprives states of an effective voice in Congress.

If the voters want to elect the same member of Congress every 2 years it is difficult to see the threat to see the threat to the republic.
The Democrat's strategy for the Trump Presidency is the same one used by Stalin's secret police chief "show me the man and I will show you the crime."
