Almost 18 months have passed since Hillary Clinton lost the presidency.Clinton has a starring role in the Republican Party's 2018 midterm strategy.As difficult as it's been for Democrats to move past the Clinton era, it may be even harder for Republicans.With no Democrat to attack in the White House for the first time in nearly a decade, Republicans are betting big that the ghost of Clinton will serve them well in 2018 .It's helpful, some Republicans say, that Clinton refuses to disappear from national politics altogether.The national GOP pounced, running digital ads featuring Clinton's comments – and her image – to attack the 10 Democratic Senate candidates running for re-election in states Trump carried.Even if Clinton avoids the spotlight moving forward, the Republican Party plans to evoke her early and often in key congressional races, particularly in regions Trump won, which feature most of the midterm season's competitive races.Clinton is a primary target of conservative media, which largely shifted its focus away from President Barack Obama after he left office last year but did not do the same with Clinton, who last served in the government in 2013 .In some cases, Republicans are using Clinton to go after their own.
