I saw in a photo that he lost his leg, but has a new one.  I wonder if he's the first person in Congress who's lost a leg? 

The district is swingy.  I guess Patrick Murphy could run for it again.

Off the top of my head there's Tammy Duckworth, and I'm sure there have been others before.

John Stennis lost a leg to cancer.

Any chances of a Democratic pick up in this seat?

Tomblin was mentioned last cycle - if any Dem could win it, it would be him. He carried it 54/42 when he last ran statewide.

Alabama (special): Ex-State Sen. Roger Bedford. Ran against Sessions in '96, and is still young-ish, at 60. Represented northern AL, but narrowly lost in 2014.
Arizona: Caption Mark Kelly
Mississippi: Jim Hood, though maybe not if he plans to run for Governor.
Nebraska: Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler
Nevada: Ex-SOS Ross Miller, or perhaps Kate Marshall, as being from Reno, she'd help neutralize Heller's regional vote there.
Tennessee: Country singer Tim McGraw - he's said in the past he'd be open to running for office.
Texas: Mark Cuban, easy.
Utah: Ex-Rep. Jim Matheson
Wyoming: State Sen. Chris Rothfuss

By the way, does anyone have the Presidential results broken down by VA state districts? I would love to compare them to tonight's results, especially the 82nd district of the State House.

Trump won HD85 by 213 votes.

Trump - 17,813 (46.7%)
HRC - 17,600 (46.1%)
Other - 2,733 (7.2%)

How many Democrats here are actual social conservatives? I consider myself to be a moderate social conservative, and the only Democrat I can think of who is to the right of me on social issues is Famous Mortimer. Yes, there are a number of pro-life Democrats here, but there are plenty of pro-life Democrats and pro-choice Republicans in the real world who are not activists and not very ideological.

(raises hand)

I'm a pro-life Democrat who owns guns.

Sharon Weston Broome came to talk to one of my classes a few years ago, and I liked her. I'm glad she was elected Baton Rouge mayor.

I think HRC's margin in Iowa sort of vindicates Braley - maybe we need to reconsider if he was uniquely bad.

BUMP

Wanted to come back to this thread briefly. Jeremy Alford (well-known analyst) and Tyler Bridges (veteran state journalist) teamed up to write this really great book called Long Shot, which chronicles this race.

I've recommended it to a few others on here. They do a good job of capturing the dynamics of state politics and getting behind the major events in the campaign. I think anyone who followed this race, or likes state politics in general, would really enjoy it!

There was a similar book written about the Edwards/Duke race written by John Maginnis years ago, called Cross To Bear. Long Shot is a great follow-up.
