Midnight Special - Democrats pick-up at least 27 House seats, flip 7 Governor seats, but lose FL, hoping for a GA run off

Dems flip 26 seats, in the lead to flip 6 or 7 more. Gillum loses FL governor race, Abrams hoping provisional and absentee ballots will push the race into a run-off, but that might involve going to court (Latest count has Abeams down by ~100,000 votes, 50.6% to 48.4%). Democrats flip NV, IL, KS, MI, NM, ME and WI governor’s seats.

Republicans retain control of the Senate, adding 2 seats to their majority.

Cruz defeats Beto O’Rourke. King ekes out a victory in IA by less than 3,000 votes. Ocasio-Cortez wins in NY.

Advise and consent will now be easier. But no repeal of Obamacare.

So... now we are going to have two years of nothing getting done, except for the court system going all right-wing reactionary.

Actually, the first thing should be an infrastructure bill.

On the plus side, there are now some few checks on the president and his family's criminal acts.

DeSantis and Soctt won in FL, so I'm bummed - but at least the rest of the country did a bit better. I'm so very happy there is a check on Trump and the republicans now.

Good for Abrams for not conceding the Georgia governor's race until vote counting is complete. Over 100K ballots were still not counted as of this morning and they seem to be mostly from heavily Democratic precincts.

Georgia is another state that has to be considered a purple battleground going forward.

I wish the media would stop using that red/blue map thing it is SO misleading and I think in the past has discouraged people from voting.
