Alas, the new Republican caucus has gotten a little bit larger. FoxNews announced tonight that two more GOP candidates have prevailed in their election battles. Joe Walsh defeated Democrat incumbent Melissa Bean in congressional district IL-08. And it appears Randy Altschuler has defeated Democrat incumbent Tim Bishop in NY-01.
We now have 242 Republicans to 190 Democrats with 3 races left to decide. That’s a gain of 64 seats (and counting) for the GOP in the next Congress! Let’s hope the last 3 seats go our way too!
It’s hard to believe less than two years ago the “lamestream” media reported the GOP had been left for dead on the long political highway called Obama-Mania. Don’t you just love surprise endings? Especially when the surprise is on them.
