It is my birthday today, so I get to post the live thread. :)
Some places to watch:
Politico SenateReal Clear Politics
Rick Santorum said earlier that Trump has been fighting with all his might these last two years anyway. Fighting the media. This will be just like that, fighting congress, which he kind of was anyway. Dont feel sorry for the Prez. He can do this.
Nelson has always been a jerk. He will play this for all its worth.
Yep. I personally am pretty shocked. I saw the polls. I know how we all (my family and friends) voted. Now, I know a lot of money and effort was thrown at this race but there is zero way it should have been this close....especially since Abbot won (at least as of right now) by 13.
I said a while back when I was looking at some polls that were showing Cruz winning by 3-5 that if that happened I was going to be very VERY concerned for 2020 in this state (the Senate). Cornyn is not as well liked among Republicans here and may face a tough primary challenge. If Beto were to run again....it just might get flipped.
I’m convinced she has dementia and thinks it’s 1955 and she’s fighting the Eisenbushtrump administration for the World Cup.
Seriously, she doesn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. I do not underestimate my enemies. She is a dunce. If the Republicans are going to lose the House, I want Pelosi as Speaker ... She pissed away power in record time. I’m praying shell break that record in 2020.
Not going to happen, GOP controls the State. Too big a lead to steal.
NEVER concede until every last vote is legally accounted for !
FBN reporting Bookies project GOP will take 56 seats in Senate.. 216 in house
You scared me there for a minute! I thought maybe all the botox and plastic surgery had gone to his brain and he thought he won.
I hate to pray that a person who isn’t a murder or rapist dies but........
Looks like Pete Sessions (R-TX) has lost to an upstart liberal Dem. Sucks that I live in that district.
Don’t be ridiculous! They didn’t with the Kav. hearing.
It would be sad if another SC Justice came up.
Are you really this politically stupid?
You are really stupid enough to think D controlling the US House, and killing any chance of Trump getting anything done,is BETTER?
How can you possibly be this fundamentally ignorant of how US politics work?
Yeah, they took their little ball and went home whining how no ones likes their GOPe BS always caving to the left and then losing their dear committee seats...oh whoa is me.
I haven’t looked.. but I can guess..
cortez in NY won.. shes as nuts as it comes.
Meanwhile in the two hottest House races in the Philly area, Republican Fitzpatrick is beating ‘rat Scott (”Dogs are smarter than police officers”) Wallace by about two percentage points in Penna1, a hold, while ‘rat Andy Kim is ahead of Republican incumbent McArthur by only 400 votes with 99% of the count done in NJ3, a possible flip but neither man is claiming victory at this point. Here in south Jersey’s second district, what was expected to be an easy win for ‘rat Van Drew has turned out to be a squeaker with Van Drew ahead of Republican Grossman by only one percent with about seventy percent of the vote in - probably eventually two razor-thin pickups for the ‘rats that probably haven’t been counted yet- not good....
Where are you getting that the house is lost?
Does anyone know the name of Abbott’s opponent? Obviously Beto had a much more well-funded campaign and huge name recognition. To think that his margin of loss wouldn’t be smaller than the governor candidate wouldn’t make any sense at all.
Which is about 10 seats worse than my worst case guess and in line with average media predictions (which makes me sick).
