    Republicans mostly continue to have their hold in the state, but some of the biggest proponents of the measure were ousted.
    What state are you in?


    It's losing in Tennessee as badly as it lost in Colorado.

    I figured and hoped the Republicans would win tonight, but damn even I am shocked.

    I think part of that was the liberal media.

    A republican took the Massachussetts Governor's chair......




    Okay. Who keeps thinking that having Martha Coakley run for political office is a good idea? Is there a way we can put that guy in charge of picking candidates for the DNC for life?

    Don't count on it. In the past 90 years, a Republican has only been in that office for eight of them. It's weird but the state votes nationally REpublican, but locally Democrat. I know my family is big in to local democrat politics, but wouldn't vote for a democratic president if they were the last one on earth.

    I hope that will be wiped out as well, but then again I care more about people than votes!

    Yup. Another governorship won by the Republican candidate. In Massachusetts no less! What a surprise!
