To recap the state leg races

We won both Houses in Arkansas for the first time since the Grant Administration. We barley have the House 51-48 with a former Harlem globetrotter winning one seat as a Green (you can’t make this stuff up, he was a former rat state rep who was forced out for some reason). As with other southern states we can probably expect some party switches to pad the majority.

We won the Alaska State Senate which had been tied and even before the tie was controlled by a disgusting rat-rino coalition. At least 13 (out of 20 seats) Republicans were elected with rat leader Hollis French narrowly ahead in one outstanding race. They elected new leadership and put the coalition to an end.

We won back the Wisconsin Senate as expected (we lost it thanks to those lame ass recalls).

And now the losses

Both Houses in Maine.

Both Houses in Minnesota (I think the Senate is a 4 year term)

The New Hampshire House (we kept the Senate 13-11) Obama lovers voting straight ticket dem in NH.

The New York Senate, again ( :( )

The Colorado House which we narrowly had won in 2010.

And we lost the tie we had in the Oregon House.

And it looks like fraud keeps democrats in charge of the Iowa Senate.

Nh House is bizarre. How can you go from 70% to minority? Perhaps there is no franking, so incumbents have little advantage. it also means they did not work their districts hard during their term. Of course, the pay is minimal so it is very part time.

I met Speaker O’Brien during the Newt campaign. Not impressed. Not at all. So if he gets the blame, that is fine. It is depressing for the conservatives who live in Nh that they are under complete assault, both by the RINO GOP leadership and then the inundation of liberalism into their state. They should have passed tough border control laws and immigration restrictions years ago when the MASS border was less porous.

I take it that we need to get more beermakers to run as Republicans, since they’re the only ones who won last Tuesday? I mean, that’s what I assume you meant when you wrote:

“We barley have the House 51-48”

And, a few minutes earlier:

“Who won in an Obama state? Heller, barley.”

: )
