Well, it is a mixed bag, but no blue wave. As of this writing it looks like they flipped 33 seats. If that holds it will be a typical switchover, with the average being 31. I would also note that Democrats controlling the House committees will provide Americans every day a reminder of what the Democrats are really about. The Kavanaugh hearing was a debacle and that sort of mindless circus is what the Dems are going to deliver in the House. Every. Single. Day.
In the meantime, Taylor Swift and Oprah had bad nights. As of now, Stacey Abrams, the Oprah favorite, is losing bigly in her quest to become governor of Georgia, and Taylor Swift failed to take out Marsha Blackburn, who won her race for the Senate. Dem superstar Beto lost to Ted Cruz in Texas, while Florida remains in GOP hands with DeSantis becoming Governor and Scott flipping the senate seat red. We can all thank President Trump for that victory. Josh Hawley has defeated Claire McCaskill for Senate in Missouri. Keeping and expanding their Senate reach, I contend, is a direct result of the Kavanaugh hearing.
President Trump has tweeted:
Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!

We will post updates and look forward to your comments and contributions in comments!
.@JohnJamesMI is amazing, and while it would have been great for him to be in the Senate, @realDonaldTrump should now bring him into the White House. People say there may be openings… 😉 https://t.co/cYDihdQXuU
