The results tonight were more or less what I expected, but the path to reach that point was strange and frustrating.

is it too early to say the ROW is starting to breathe a collective sigh of relief and start feeling a little bit hopeful again?

Fuck yes, if things hold, at least I got one of my big wins. Rohrabacher looks like he's out!

Not to mention Scott Walker.

Charlie Baker governor of MA is one. Won reelection last night. I voted for him, I think he's been a very good governor and obviously so do many Democrats in the state. First time I've ever voted for a Republican. He had Democratic state reps doing tv ads endorsing him. The Democrat who ran against him wasn't impressive at all, but I don't think that would have mattered if it was somebody better. At last count it was 67-33%.

The state is in good shape and he has Democratic views on social issues. He's critical of Trump too. He's a lone voice in the darkness but at least it's something. Of course if he ever runs for national office he will pull a Romney and sell out to try to win .Charlie Baker as currently constituted could never win national office as a Republican these days, he's unique to MA and will stay that way.

Romney is a Senator now, he won last night. Freaking Cruz, ugh. And Florida is so depressing to me.

Yes.

1) there's still 2 months until the Democrats take over the house, which is plenty of time for Trump to do all sorts of crazy, unchecked things.

2) never underestimate the Democrats ability to shoot themselves in the foot between now and 2020

Other than in New England, of all places. Massachusetts, Connecticut and Vermont all have (or will have) Republican governors.

And potentially Utah, depending on which Mr. Mittens decides to come to Washington.

First openly gay congressman in NH.

At least the House changed.

My major takeaways from last night...

1) Trump's path to the Electoral College is now blocked. The rust belt, for the most part, flipped back the other way. The biggest focus for the Democratic Party over the next two years needs to be making sure it stays that way.

2) running the right candidate in the right place works in most locations. Many centrists won last night, but so did leftists. There's no one size fits all, and we need to remember that - especially when running from behind.

3) many parts of America are still pretty fucking racist

I wish the media was more of a news source versus an entertainment for ratings.

What’s going on in this country is not normal. Yet they treat it like oooh won’t this be interesting!!!

Thank fuck the house flipped but as headache said there’s still another month before congress goes to break.

If Mueller was holding off to not influence the election, now he can release whatever he’s got cause Trump is gonna come after him

New England is a place where I’d consider voting for a Republican at times.

Everywhere else: not on your life.

Remember Kim Davis, that clerk in Kentucky who refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple? She lost to a Democratic challenger.

People must have been bigoted against her, poor thing. Rigged! Anti religion bias! Maybe Trump has an opening at the WH.

All’s y’all better start talking about statehood for DC and Puerto Rico to balance out the Wyomings in the Senate.

Also, can we merge the Dakotas? I don’t see the point.

Don’t hold your breath but Florida senate tightened up over night. We might be headed for a recount.

If we eliminate Florida and Missouri from the union than we don't even have to change the flag!

70% of the registered voters nationally who didn't vote yesterday = under the age of 45.

The youngs = still suck

Also = hey I'm still a young by that count!

is this for real?
