We’re closing on 60+. 65 was the high end. The GOP has already exceed its 1994 figure of 54.

I’d love to see her gone, also. My eastside county went 57% for Rossi....but King County wields the big stick (and most of the fraud).

Yep, as I just said MN Senate just flipped Republican for the first time in 38 years.

MINNESOTA.

Yeah, that one.

I am almost giddy!

Unfortunately, I live in King County. If Rossi loses, it will be somber at work. I don't know anyone there that wants Murray back.

It looks like the Dems put their resources in the Senate, and as a result were only badly beaten in the Senate. Meantime, down the ballot the super tsunami swept over the Dem party.

The only place Reid blew Angle out of the water is Clark County, and you have to at least come close in Clark County to win the state.

Five seats is nothing to sneeze at. The Democrats have to defend vulnerable Red State seats in the next election cycle. And Dingy Harry, after a near death political experience, won’t ask them to walk the plank for Obummer.

John Boehner apparently had a conversation with obozo b/4 he went on TV tonight according to Megyn Kelly on Fox, and he made mention AGAIN tonight of “reaching across the isle” blah,blah,blah in his speech. John also mentioned his father owning a tavern when he was a kid. When John broke down a couple of times tonight during his speech, I wondered if he had a few too many drinks b/4 going on, and after talking to obozo. The guy standing to the right, behind John on stage looked alarmed and edgy each time John started to cry, and was leaning in to take his elbow, but stopped.

John needs to take a FIRM stand AGAINST “reaching across the isle” because he will have a massive backlash from those of us who refuse to deal in any way, shape or form with SOCIALISTS/marxists/communists/fascists/revolutionaries. We destroy them; we do not negotiate with them. John also has to watch his alcohol consumption...he is appearing weak and unsure of himself and the policies of the Republican Party. We need a strong, determined leader, and John Boehner is not giving me the impression that he is the man for the job.

I realize that these are highly charged, emotional times. It is also a time to recognize, and bolster our weak points, as any leader would.

+6 on the Senate front, might go as high as +8.

+59 on the house front, might go as high as +65.

Not counted in the tossups at RCP

so one way or the other, win or lose, that one was already accounted for

I gave the list of races still toss ups, including the state and district number. Her name wasn’t on the list, so it must have been decided already.

OK, on the NYT website, http://elections.nytimes.com/2010/results/senate , when you click on the senate race “by county” (clicking on the state itself will show you), Nevada looks pretty suspicious.

While I am so frustrated at Boxer’s win in CA, and hate seeing the huge portions of the state that obviously HATE her being outvoted by the bleeding hearts and handout-seekers, the numbers per county really do not make sense in NV.

ONLY in Clark County is there any lead for Reid. He lost in blowouts in all other counties but two, and in those two the race was very tight. How can Las Vegas make the ONLY place where he wins enough to win the state?

Republicans have gained 61 seats in the House of Representatives today.

It was a great day for conservatives. The radical far leftist agenda has been slowed down. Just think we now have a lot more conservatives vs. RINOs in congress. Now the goal is to keep the momentum going.

Don’t worry about Harry Reid. A) I think it was stolen. The polls do not match the actual vote. Plus with the conservative wave that took place it does not add up. B) 1/3 of the Senate will be up for election in 2012. More Democrats than this time, and the will not be able to blame all the problems on congress and not Obama. The Senate is still controlled by the Rats.

The people for the most part have spoken (minus the rats book of dirty tricks).

In Hawaii, it appears that Djou , the GOP incumbent, lost by about 8 percent. That was a fluke anyway, since he won the seat because two libs split the Dem vote.

So that will wind up as a Democrat pickup of a GOP seat that should have never been lost by the Dems in the first place.

Djou appeared to be a good guy, but the voting history was just against him.
