In Ct, we had a nightmare race for Senate. Both candidates were awful. The Democrat won. Linda McMahon lost despite spending $50m. The US Postal Service is crying at the loss of her revenue. I've never received as much mail as I did from her the past few months.
Our Gubnatorial race is going to be decided in the courts. Malloy (D) won the election, but the Republicans are contesting it. I don't think they will get anywhere.
Nationally, the one I am disappointed at is that Meg Whitman lost in California. I really believe that in order to restore bi-partisanship in this country the California Republicans have to wrestle control of the party back. They won't be able to do that if they can't even win their own state.
I didn't realize you were a CT guy. I work with a lot of folks from CT. I'd say Blumenthal is about as a low as you go with his "when I got back from Vietnam" remark. You just don't lie about combat service, especially with the sensitivity of the Vietnam War. I also love that he couldn't respond to the question about how you create a job in the private sector. A few of the folks at my office pretty much hated Linda McMahon by the end because of the non-stop phone calls and mailings.
