Where Angles Fear to Tread

US Mid-Term 10pm

Filed under: Politics, UK Politics — Tags: — Right Angle @ 2:07 am

The polls close in California in 8 minutes and already results are pouring in. So far we have the following:

House +12 Republicans (Changing hands to Republicans: Virginia 2, 5, 9; Indiana 8,9; Tennessee 4,6,8; Florida 2,8&24; New Hampshire 1; Texas 17; Changing hands to Democrats: Delaware 1)

Senate +2 Republicans – Arkansas – John Boozman; Indiana – Daniel Coats

The House seats being gained are, in the main, historic Republican seats which were lost two years ago or during the Bush administration. However, the Republicans have gained Virginia 9th (west Virginia) from Rick Boucher who has been in the House for 14 terms (28 years!)

Meanwhile the Governorships are also up for grabs and the Republicans have gained 2 states – Kansas (Jerry Moran) and Tennessee (Bill Haslam).

Too early to tell what will happen but with the results in Virginia the night could be very bad for the President in the House, whilst he will retain the Senate.
