The thread title is very misleading. There was 6 house and a senate seat up and all were won by Republicans.
In your effort to rain on someone else's parade, you spout out wrong information. Yes there were 6 House seats (CA-34, GA-6, KS-4, MTAL, SC-5, UT-3), but only 5 were won by Republicans. However, conveniently left out is the fact that, besides UT-3 and CA-34, all other seats came very close to being upsets. Yes, the GOP won the seats, but it wasn't exactly a walk in the park either.
There's a Senate seat still up for election. While Moore is favored to win the seat, the election has not happened yet. It would be wise for you to also learn the lesson about counting chickens before they hatch.
And considering that the elections resulted in a governorship being picked up and another legislative chamber flipped, Democrats now have 2 more trifectas added; if the House of Delegates in Virginia goes their way, they just need one Senate seat to turn Virginia completely blue.
I know the DNC will latch on to anything since their party has been floundering with no vision but their high tax socialist, open border agenda that handed them a biblical defeat last year.
At least it stands for something. The GOP, drunk with power, has only managed to get Gorsuch confirmed. ACA still stands, and tax reform is already imploding, with many promises already broken. Carrier? China? Lock her up?
Waiting for the winning to begin...#JustSaying
Winning in two blue states is hardly a sweep. Maybe make inroads in states like FL, OH etc and you can begin to celebrate.
I'm fairly certain you'll dismiss OH and FL as being "blue" states. You'll find lots of columns detailing how Virginia is bluer than the national average but is still by no means completely blue. When its delegation is Democrat majority, when its legislature returns to Democratic hands, and when its presidential margin goes beyond 5 points, talk to me about Virginia being a blue state. Dismissing it for being blue is trying to soften the blow; fairly certain that if Gillespie had won you'd be celebrating how Virginia had not moved to the left.
Just some advice, lose the race baiting, rich hating and taxing people to death mantra. It lost you the white house to a neophyte last year and you will continue to be rejected in real election years to come.
Oh, you mean "All lives matter" and give the rich a tax cut? How's that working so far for the GOP? The "unity" of the country is astounding.
Don't worry about Democrats...they're not governing right now (and the GOP is making no efforts to include them either which is good since it eases the burden on them). Worry about your own flank that almost year in still hasn't accomplished a single achievement and is due to face the voters in a year. The razor edge margins in WI, MI, and PA could be reversed in 2020 and Trump could find himself faced with electoral defeat. You wanna talk about freeloaders? Look no further than Republicans who are being paid with nothing to show for it.
