    Default NY congressional election

    Democrat wins seat in heavily GOP area of N.Y.

    Race reveals split between moderates, conservatives in Republican party


    Republicans hadn't lost in the region in more than a century. Owens defeated Hoffman despite a 45,000-voter registration edge for Republicans and big-name endorsements for Hoffman from former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, former Republican Sen. Fred Thompson and others.

    Do you suppose we can get Sarah Palin to endorse more republican candidates?

    Hey Rog! News Flash!

    Republicans Win Governor's Races in New Jersey, Virginia

    Republican Chris Christie beats incumbent Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine in New Jersey; Republican Bob McDonnell trounces Democrat Creigh Deeds in Virginia. Democrats prevent a shut-out by winning an upstate New York congressional seat.


    Republicans swept to victory in the New Jersey and Virginia governor's races Tuesday, scoring a pair of decisive wins in states that voted for President Obama a year ago.
    The Democrats were able to prevent a shut-out, though, pulling out a narrow victory in a closely watched congressional election in upstate New York. Democrat Bill Owens beat Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in that race.

    The Republican victories nevertheless marked a potential turnaround after two consecutive cycles of midterm losses. In New Jersey, Republican Chris Christie beat out Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine, even though Obama campaigned heavily for the incumbent in the closing days of the race and the state has not elected a Republican governor since 1993.

    In Virginia, Republican Bob McDonnell beat Democrat Creigh Deeds by a huge margin, heading up a successful GOP ticket. McDonnell's victory ends eight years of Democratic control of the governorship.

    The victories could spell trouble for Democrats' legislative agenda in Washington and stand as harbingers of GOP gains in the 2010 midterm elections. Republicans claimed the races Tuesday served as a collective rebuke of Democrats' policies on Capitol Hill and at the White House.

    Democrats (Roger Perry), though, dismissed such readings.



    I even got my link from Fox News to annoy you a little more...

    Both sides declare victory. No surpise there, or in yesterday's elections.

    Republicans and democrats elected...hardly a revolution, or even much of a referendum.

    Just more of the same old, same old.

    come on JD. Don't let me down. You must have some left wing spin. Explain why the governors races don't matter and the New York -23 reflects the mood of a nation.

    Hey Roger,

    Try this CNN link: http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/11/...ces/index.html but be warned, it might not fuel the liberal spin as much as you would like...CNN no less! Say it ain't so!

    Enjoy,

    Just an observation: After 9-11, when Bush's approval ratings were through the roof, the off-cycle elections saw democrats elected to governor's chairs in NJ and VA. What does that, or this election's gov races mean? I have no idea.
