Meanwhile, DUP leader Arlene Foster has said that talks were ongoing, indicating it may not be such a smooth process after all. But despite May's dire result, her message did resonate with some Brexiteers in Wakefield who wavered from the Labour party.

Walberg said he last spoke with Mika late Monday at a Michigan Republican reception in Washington, where he saw his "infectious personality" on full display.
