Walker and Kasich seem to be doing well so far despite everyone saying they were in tight races.

Im not surpised for Texas. I think some of the last polls averaged around Abbot having 20% more than Davis.

I've exceeded my edit time limit.

Illinois votes for a higher minimum wage, while the senate is looking at 40(D)-45(R)-2(I).

Abbot defeats Davis



Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) easily defeated state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) on Tuesday, taking 59 percent of the vote in early returns.

Abbott ran as a successor to outgoing Gov. Rick Perry (R), whose economic policies created more than a million new jobs since the depth of the recession. Abbott, a former state Supreme Court justice who served as attorney general for 12 years, touted his ability to bridge the gap between businesses and conservative Republicans in a deeply red state.

Davis, an unlikely breakout star after conducting a one-woman filibuster against a bill that restricted abortion rights, could not overcome Republicans’ Texas advantage. No Democrat has won statewide office in Texas since 1990, when Ann Richards won the governor’s mansion.

Abbott’s biography is punctuated by moments of triumph: He recalls winning every track meet he entered during his senior year in high school. He served as president of the National Honor Society. His classmates voted him Most Likely to Succeed. He has never lost an election.

Still, the single moment that has most shaped the public image of Greg Abbott is not a victory but a profound loss: In 1984, while taking a jogging break from studying for the bar exam, Abbott was struck by a falling tree. The tree broke bones that pierced his spinal cord, fractured ribs that poked his organs. He had to wait five hours before doctors gave him painkillers. For 30 years, Abbott has had to use a wheelchair. It has, by necessity, changed his outlook on life.

Fixed it

Republicans took it clearly

Looks like Colorado is still a bit close. Louisiana is projected to go into a run off, and possibly Georgia to.

Reps took Montana and currently need a net gain of 2 to take the Senate.

I am sitting here thinking.

With the gains in the house, and the gains in the senate +5.

Looks like tomorrow begins the real 'year' of action with the guy whose got a pen, and a phone.

I can imagine now many EO's are going to be coming down the road the next two years.

Washington (CNN) -- Republicans have picked up another Senate seat and now need only two more to seize Senate control, according to a CNN projection.

So far on Tuesday night, Republicans have picked up Democratic-held seats in Montana, South Dakota, Arkansas and West Virginia. CNN also projects Republicans will maintain their grip on the House of Representatives.



GOP 2 seats away

Looks like Colorado is slightly turning towards the Reps. CNN is saying Udall may be in trouble now.

Also, here's a map from CNN that's constantly updated. www.cnn.com...

74% of the Colorado vote in and Gardner (R) is 51% and Udall (D) is 44%. The Governor race is still too close there.

Yup, CNN just now projected Gardner (R) will unseat Udall (D) in Colorado.

First time the Reps took a senate seat there since 2002 (per CNN).

Reps need just 1 more gain to takeover the Senate.

It appears that the polls may have been pretty accurate this time around. The Republicans will capture the senate as expected.

I agree with you neo. Without Obama's hand picked supporters he will have no choice but to EO. These next 2 years can't go byquick enough.

If the Republicans romp, the Executive Branch will go into a maniacal frenzy.

They will go bat crazy with Cabinet related regulations that don't have to be Congressionally approved.

The revenge will be unprecedented.

Get ready for insane jealousy to present itself.

They're already setting up excuses and blame databases.

and yet i think senate and hosue are incharge of approving his appointments so they could still make some trouble to counter act some EO

I'm fortunate enough to be "close" to some people deep within the state and national GOP, and they have been saying that if the Republicans pick-up the senate and retain the house....they better do something.

If not, a good percentage of the party will be looking for alternatives, such as the Libertarian ticket.

So if they want to maintain control and make 2016 a favorable cycle, they better go to work.

ETA: They also better put a stop to EO's. That would be something I could support.
