The republican senator's concern is more for protection of the GOP reputation, and less for welfare of the country, except country as perceived by GOP interpretation.

We can say a democratic senator's concern is more for protection of DNC reputation, and less for welfare of the country, except country as perceived by DNC interpretation, with similar weight. Point is both allow party to get in the way of country. Country is bigger than party. It takes both parties, and then some.
