It looks like the GOP will take control of the US Senate in 2015. I fully expect them to pass a budget next year, as required by law, and ignored by Harry Reid and his Merry Band of Pranksters since 2009.
In New Hampshire, in a heart breaker, Scott Brown apparently lost by 1-2%. So close!
[Update: Final closer to 4%. Still close!]
In Colorado, Cory Gardner beat Mark
In North Carolina, Thom Tillis has been declared the winner.
In Arkansas, Tom Cotton won by a substantial margin. Joni Ernst castrated one more hog in Iowa, becoming the 6th and controlling majority vote in the Senate. (margins may increase between now and January. It was +7 when I packed it in last night.)
David Perdue took more than 50% of the vote in Georgia, avoiding a runoff. 57% last time I looked.
In Alaska, the polls didn't close until 1 AM Eastern. I will update this in the AM, or at first opportunity.
[Update: Our man Sullivan up by 4% - still too close to call.]
We fully expected there to be a run off in Louisiana that might not be decided until December. We were right. Bill Cassidy was leading Mary Landfill by 2%
[Update: Mary Landrieu is up by 1, but it's a whole new race now.]
Congratulations! Ten Buck Fridayians, give yourself a hand! Every one of you who contributed to one or all of these candidates, is hereby awarded the honor of being an honorary Koch brother! Whenever the Left, like the deranged Harry Reid, babbles about how money from the Koch brothers influences elections, I want you to agree with them and introduce yourself, so they can meet the real Koch brothers!
Display the following badge (or the above banner) with pride!
[Update: In addition to the +7 pickup in the Senate, Alaska and Virginia are still too close to call, plus Cassidy looks good for the runoff in LA. As of this AM, a possibility of +10 for the Republicans. Ten Buck Friday contributed to seven of those.]
