Some quick election updates:
The Democrats take the House, and they stand to pick up a few extra seats in the process. The senate is still uncertain. If the Democrats win three out of four key races, they could still pull it out, but it isn’t looking too hopeful.
Rick Santorum is history. Enough said.
South Dakota voted down a proposed ban on all abortions.
Of the three Texas races mentioned here previously, Democrats Chet Edwards (US Congress) and Patrick Rose (Texas House of Representatives) held on to their seats, but, unfortunately, so did Rick Perry (Texas Governor).
Overall, things look pretty good, but several races will have to be decided before we know the final standings.
