Well, I think we can conclude that the Senate, at least, is going to stay in the hands of the Democratic Party.
Do not bet against the Tea Party in a Republican primary.
The alternate title for this post is the DeMint 10. The GOP Senate mindset is encapsulated in this quote, regarding the loss in DE:
"Its really a lynchpin. Right now we calculate there are about 13 Senate races that are in play, but you know you start to chip away at them by taking states like Delaware out of play, then our chances of getting there are much lower," he said.
This makes 12, and that includes CA, WI, WA, NV, and WV. I think this conservative comment sums up the point of these voters:
I too am uninterested in a GOP majority. If they're not conservative, what's the point?
It's actually commendable to see an ideological understanding of politics, but understand that we have a GOP Senator, Jim DeMint, basically thinking the same thing.
Too close to call in NH still, but Lamontagne is better than Ayotte, so the thinking goes in Hode's camp.
In MA 9th, Lynch won 65-35. Maloney won with 81 percent in NY 14th. Rangel won with 52 percent. None of those are stories. Also in NY, looks like Hoffman lost the GOP primary. IN RI, Segel came in third at 20 percent. In NH 2nd, Kuster wins easily.
