Collins keeps her seat

Gideon conceded a short while ago. Collins almost lost because of Maine’s ranked-choice system, which is not quite like an explicit vote.

Senate was a stretch goal, can't get too hung up on that.

Unfortunate. I was hoping that she’d go away.

It just stinks when your stretch goal was also your key to effective governance. Blerg.

Pardon my ignorance, but how did both Biden AND Collins win in Maine?

No term-limits. This needs to be the next "big push". These career politicians - and their chokehold on America - need to go.

Sen. Peters is probably going to lose in Michigan. The Senate was a long shot anyway.

The Dem challenger didn't make the case well enough, other than to run on, "vote for me, I'm a Democrat and I wouldn't have voted for Kavanaugh." The dems have to run on Den values, which translate into Dem policies, which bubble down to actual people.

The challenger certainly had the cash.

And a lot of out of staters telling Maine people how to vote. Doesn't work there (or most places).

A lot of these should have been easy ones. Instead Democrats lost ground.
