Chris Redfern also lost. I suppose blind partisan hackishness eventually catches up to a man.

The person who beat him is under investigation for burglary, if I'm not mistaken.

Correct.

I want to apologize to the Forum: I said McConnell would win by 6-8%. He won by 15%.

Accepted, but watch yourself.

How bad was it for Fitzgerald Tuesday? He lost his OWN PRECINCT!

Apparently his neighbors don't like the idea of a chronically unlicensed driver cruising their streets. Wink

"Help"? Certainly.

"Save her"? No way.
5  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Is Scott Brown's political career finally over? on: November 05, 2014, 01:40:40 am
He would still be in the Senate if he ran against Markey in 2013. Gabriel Gomez came within single digits. And he wouldn't've lost in this climate, either. And if we'd gotten someone better to run against Jeanne Shaheen -- Dan Innis and Chris Sununu come to mind -- we might have that one as well by now. It's clear the "carpetbagger" line of attack stuck, and Shaheen still barely won.

You know, considering the results tonight (particularly ones like MA-Gov and MD-Gov) I'm half convinced he'd be in the Senate had he run against Markey in 2014.

Nah, Markey still would've been safe. Vosem is probably right though.

Politico's promotion of Gilespie had more to do with establishment back-scratching than any insight into how the race would turn out.

This x 100. Hence option 2.

No gloating, we need to be better than that.  This was a hard fought race and kicking dirt in Democrats eyes is unnecessary.

I think my favorite part of the night quickly became the humbling of the Nerd Herd around here. You know, the people that act like Mark Warner is literally God-like. What an absolute joke of a candidate to only beat Gillespie by 1%. I wouldn't even deliver a victory speech if I were him. I'd be too embarrassed.

And how close did you predict Gillespie would come? Or ever once opine anything prior to the last two weeks indicating Warner wouldn't win easily?

Welcome to the herd.

Ernst up 50-46 with 60% in.  They need to call this race so I can go to bed...

It's called for Ernst, Bushie. You can go get your daily recommended 13 hours of beauty sleep now.
10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:23:31 pm
Tonight is brutal. Just brutal. I mean, we can't "win" every election but are there ANY bright spots for us tonight?
We knocked off an incumbent GOP governor in PA. Another in KS may drop very soon. Also picked up a Republican district in Florida.

Brownback is winning.
11  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2014 US Gubernatorial Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:21:26 pm
And Brownback up over 10k/1.5% with over 70% in.

I feel felicitations and salutations are in order, Phillip.

(i.e. CONGRATS PHIL!!)

If this doesn't capture the essence of the Ohio Democratic Party tonight (who were blanked across the board in every race including judicials):

Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern is stepping down as party chair, having been defeated for re-election for state representative by, per the Mansfield News-Journal, "A political newcomer being investigated in connection with a burglary"  Shocked
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2014 US Gubernatorial Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:00:48 pm
I'm just whistling past this thread...

Of course you would, as a Republican from Pennsylvania Roll Eyes.
14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 10:58:19 pm


Louise Slaughter, who's been in office since the '80s, is behind with 90% reporting in her district. Damn. The Democrats might lose half a dozen Congressional seats in New York alone.

I obviously don't go in for "Ready4Hillary mania", but assuming she is the nominee, these freshmen are going to have a hard row to hoe for a second term.

What's the numbers in ME?
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2014 US Gubernatorial Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 10:46:12 pm

Oh, that makes sense then. That would've otherwise been MASSIVELY against the tide.

Fox News: Schauer wins Michigan
Shocked

my feeling is better than in 2010...

Mine too. Wink

Roberts up 6 in KS with 44% of the vote in 51-45

Congrats Phil!

Looks like IN-7 was a typo the entire time. Carson now narrowly leads the Republican.

His mother and he both have chronically underperformed inn races.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2014 US Gubernatorial Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 08:05:09 pm
Scott is up with 59% reporting.

What areas are in/out? Do we know?

3 wins at home and 12 touchdowns in the last 2 games has silenced the Haley Haters.

I have to admit, I was also pretty amazed we won 3 at home in the last 2 games. Tongue

At this point in the election, comparing 2014 to 2010 is ludicrous.  That like wishing for history repeat itself whether the outcome was good or bad.  Most of the red avatars in this thread are over the top with their predictions, it's mind baffling. 

Yes, I'm sure someone with the signature "Paul/Cruz 2016!" is a paragon of objectivity.

JUNK SIGNATURE! JUNK USER!
KCDem on ignore for his stupidity.

You don't want putting stupid posters on ignore to become a trend. Trust me.

Wild Card: Owens beats Mia Love in UT-4.

Nah, I don't believe it much either.

Pick an random unrepresented county in Ohio and add me.
