Only partisan Democrats would be the ones crying over losing legislatures in the deep south, yes.

Yeah. 2010 was painful, so was 2002, but unless I lived in Mississippi I'm not going to shed tears over an historical inevitability. Sorry.

Then, it must really have hurt to watch the GOP pick up both chambers in New Hampshire, Maine, Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Houses in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Ohio, and the Senate in New York. The last one must have really caused some consternation. Fortunately, the loss of both chambers in North Carolina wasn't that bad since it is part of the South.

Its frustrating and sad to a white southern ConservaDem like me; still, given the south's hostility to Obama, I can't say its surprising.

Been checking numbers, and it appears that as a result of the November 2011 elections, both houses of the Mississippi state legislature went from Democrat controlled to Republican controlled while in Lousiana and Virginia (where each party previously controlled one of the houses of the state legislature), Republicans won control of both houses.

Yes, I know the Democrats won a couple of special state legislative races around the country, but I don't know of any legislature (or house thereof) which flipped to Democrat control in 2011.

Does anyone else?

If so, please specify state, which house(s), and a link.

Thank you.

Since Nov 2010, the GOP gained majorities in five legislatures, and the Democrats none:the Lousiana House by party switches, the Lousiana Senate by special elections, the Mississippi Senate by party switches, the Mississippi House on election day, and the Virginia Senate on election day. In one year, that's a switch from a 5-1 advantage, to a 1-5 disadvantage.

It must have been a pretty painful year for partisan Democrats to watch!

What is so hillarious is the Democrats are bragging about winning a vote on one issue is Ohio (they lost on the healthcare issue in the same election in Ohio), while ignoring what happened around the mation.

Having actually read the soft cuddly language of (and voted on) Issue 3, I assure you few people knew what they were voting about. The same cannot be remotely said about Issue 2.

There was no excuse for Democrats to lose the New York Senate.  This was caused by a Democratic incumbent losing in a 77% Obama district.

It looks like Dickie Drake (that name would not fly too well in much of the country, I'd guess) will replace his late brother Owen in the Alabama H of R for District 45.
http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2011/11/unofficial_results_show_drake.html

He is leading Paige Parnell, a former Miss Alabama, about 55 to 45%.

It was confirmed today that the slew of specials we are going to have here in a number of State House districts will take place in the new districts. Since my district was eliminated, I won't have to vote. This would have been the only truly competitive special. The only other one that might be is one in the Lehigh Valley but the GOP will have the edge.

New York will have four special elections for Assembly at a time yet undetermined next year - two currently held by Democrats who won local elective offices in Buffalo and Yonkers, and two held by Republicans representing districts from Dutchess County and environs.  One of the Dutchess County elections is due to the Assemblyman being elected County Executive; the other is due to death.  The deceased Assemblyman Kirwin only won by 15 votes in the 2010 election.

He's talking about Dov Hikind's Assembly district, which is totally irrelevant to the discussion but was extremely strong for McCain, like 70% or so. Of course, Presidential vote is meaningless in that part of the world.

He's not; that seat is fairly Republican but far from the second-most Republican in the state. It's maybe R+5 or so.

whats so embarrassing it was one democrat loosing to another think of Bloomberg winning in NY (his first term when he was still officially a Republican)  (all it was was a democrat switching parties for political reasons as opposed to ideological ones and then acting like a democrat once he got in office)
