Republican wave election



Republicans did well in the elections last week, picking up enough seats from Democrats to win the majority (and therefore control) of the Senate. They also picked up enough seats in the House of Representatives to now have 60 more votes than Democrats. And, with respect to executive leadership, the Republicans have 31 state governors, to the 17 held by Democrats.
These results are as reported by Real Clear Politics, which lists some plurality run-offs as if the leader will get the seat, if the lead is large enough
Here is another article by a writer happy with the victories

Republicans won in states normally held by Democrats--like the governorships in Maryland and Illinois.

Republican Scott Walker won in Wisconsin, in spite of the union money spent against him.

One consolation to Democrats--they held on to a Senate seat in Virginia that turned out to be a very close race.

You mean he won because of the MILLIONS The Koch Brothers and other millionaires poured into the race through Political Action Committees. Walker outspent Burke by like 10-1 in advertising, most of it paid for by "dark money."

I've said before and I'm saying it now. You know NOTHING about how the political system works in this state. Kindly quit offering half arsed, unintelligent regurgitation of what you hear on Conservative talk radio and FAUX News.

It makes you look like an idiot.
