DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Some of Donald Trump's fiercest advocates are offering different approaches for the Republican Party's way forward after some tough losses Tuesday.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel are calling on Republicans to unite, while former White House strategist Steve Bannon is calling for rebellion against establishment Republicans.

Spicer and McDaniel spoke Wednesday at an Iowa GOP banquet. Bannon spoke at a county GOP dinner in Michigan.

Their remarks underscore tension bubbling over in Washington.

Spicer attributes Virginia Republican Ed Gillespie's loss in Tuesday's gubernatorial election to Republican "litmus tests."

Bannon, who has pledged to find challengers to virtually all GOP senators seeking re-election next year, says, "You have drop the hammer."
