House Results

Bumped and Updated Republican JD Hayworth, who was considered to be a shoe-in to keep his seat, loses to Democrat challenger Mitchell.


At this point the Dems have two pick ups in the House.

In Indiana CD 2, Fox is projecting Democrat Joe Donnelly over incumbent Chris Chocola.

In Kentucky CD3, Republican Ann Northup is projected to lose to Yarmuth.

Update: Florida CD 13: Rep. Buchanan defeats Dem. Jennings 51%-49%.

Update II: Joe Negron, via Mark Foley, is holding on in his race against Dem. Mahoney.

Update III: WV CD 1: Dem. Allan Mollohan will retain http://wizbangblog.com/mt-static/images/formatting-icons/bold.gif
Boldhis seat to the House in spite of his ethics problems. I guess his voters have a very high tolerance threshold for low ethics.

Update IV: Connecticut CD5 Rep Nancy Johnson is projected to lose to Dem Chris Murphy. This is another Dem House pickup. Brit says this may be a turning point. Let's hope not.

So far the Dems have picked up 4 seats and they need 15 to take over the house. Fox's Major Garrett is reporting that several senior Republicans strategists in the House are predicting, at least to him, that Republicans will lose anywhere from 22-30-something seats. They're hoping that the losses are in the low 20's - not in the high 30's.

Update V: IN CD9: Rep incumbent Mike Sodrel will lose to Dem Barren Hill.

Update VI: PA CD7: Dem Joe Sestak will defeat Rep Curt Weldon.

Update VII: Ohio CD18: This is Bob Ney's former seat. Dem Zach Space has defeated Rep Joy Padgett. This is another Dem pick up in Southeast Ohio. It's a very beautiful and normally Republican area.

Update VIII: PA CD10Dem Don Sherwood has defeated Rep Sherwood, which was expected.

Update IX: Two more Dem pickups:

NY CD24: Dem Arcuri defeated Rep Meier.

NH CD2: Republican incumbent Charlie Bass has lost to Democrat Hodes.

Update X: IL CD14: Rep. Dennis Hastert holds onto his seat in his race against Dem. Laesch.

Update XI: Two more Democrat pick ups:

Arizona CD8: Dem. Giffords defeated Republican Graf.

Florida CD22: Republican Clay Shaw has lost to Democrat Ron Klein.

Update XII: Good news in New York. NY CD26: Republican Tom Reynolds defeats Democrat Davis.

Update XIII: Democrat Gillibrand has defeated Republican Incumbent Republican John Sweeney. The Republicans would have had to hold this seat if they had any chance of keeping the House. Unfortunately, they didn't keep it.

Update XIV: TX CD22 Delay's former seat: Democrat Nick Lampson has defeated Cynthia Sekula-Gibbs.

This means that the Democrats have won control of the House with this seat. As we have been warning for some time, this is what we will get with Democrat control of the House:

Far leftist Nancy Pelosi will probably be Speaker of the House, if the Dems keep her. Charles Rangel, who said there wasn't one Bush tax cut that he liked, will be chairman of Ways and Means committee. Good bye tax cuts. Hellooo taxes. John "can't wait to impeach President Bush" Conyers will be head of the Judiciary Committee. Henry Waxman who hasn't seen a government investigation of a Republican that he hasn't liked will be head of the Government Reform Committee. And get this: Alcee Hastings, impeached as a federal judge for bribery, will could end up as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee! Ugh!!

Update XV: NH CD1: Dem Shea-Porter has defeated Rep. Incumbent Bradley for another Dem House pickup.

Update XVI: Major Garrett is reporting that House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (cringe as I write that) said that Democrats won't pull spending for Iraq immediately, which means they will eventually. The House controls the purse-strings. The Democrats will do to the war in Iraq what they did to Vietnam: withhold funding and force us to cut and run. This is was Hassan Nasrallah, terrorist leader of Hezbollah predicted.

Update XVII: OH CD 15: Republican Deborah Pryce holds her seat and defeats Kilroy.

Update XVIII: FL CD16: Democrat challenger Mahoney is projected to defeat Joe Negron via Mark Foley by fewer that 3,000 votes. Seven percent of the precincts have yet to report.

Davis and Lucas are doing well in KY, but Sodrel is also in a tight race in IN-9.

These results bring us to -3 in that area, which is what Rove said we could lose of those seats and still keep the House. If Sodrel loses in the end, it doesn't look good. Right now he is trailing by about 900 votes out of 65,000 cast.

The idiot Libertarian is drawing nearly 4000 votes in that race, by the way.

Look at it this way. The economy is at the highest point in history in every area. That's like being on the top of a mountain. No way to go but down. The dim's have nothing to build on so are left with only the option of destruction and they will do that. I expect a total crash of the economy within 12 months with them in charge, and they will get the blame and have to accept it.

Even the terrorists leaders are telling the people the Americans are weak will abandon them to slaughter like they did the people of Southeast Asia and now I suspect they will be right. The democrats are incapable of protecting the lives of anyone. That would be natural for someone who champions the murder of now appraching 50 million babies.

Precious metals. The price of gold is already shooting up, that should tell you something. The dollar won't be worth 25 cents in todays money within two years.

This is the time for Bush to drop the nicey nicey no veto crap. If the Democrats threaten to defund the Iraq War, then make damn sure the public knows what they are doing and they absorb the political liability of doing so.

But instead, I suspect Bush will compromise a pull-out plan called something else under a pretense of saving face. Because with this Congress he can get something he couldn't with the last Congress, a Guest Worker program and blowing open the doors to illegal immigration.

The economy is at the highest point in history in every area.

Unemployment was lower under Clinton.

Get all of your money out of the stock market, now.

On a day when the Dems were expected to win, the stock market is up.

The dollar won't be worth 25 cents in todays money within two years.

Right, because the last time the Dems were in charge, the economy totally tanked, yes?

Any other predictions?

The last time modern Democrats were in charge, they were kicked out of Office for 12 years.

The little victory for Republicans here is the public will be painfully reminded over the next two years why they did that.

After the dust settles over this blue infection. I would like to obtain a list of EVERY (RED) district that voted BLUE, and somehow send a message to those people.

Thanks for nothing...............enjoy the next two years, and the possible world consequences of
these election results. RED staters have (NO) excuse whatsoever!!! they should KNOW better. now they will get what they voted for!

Say HI to that singing group, -Nancy and the asshats-.

Well Brian, scrappy McDouche was predicting the Republicans would hold onto the house, adn we see how that went...

JPM100 -- The Dems held the House for 40 years. The Repubs lost it in 12 years. Who needs reminding of what? The Democrats lost it and the Republicans screwed it up in less than half the time the Dems held it. Reminding who of what? 40 years compared to 12 years.......you had your chance and ya blew it! Eat it softly so you don't choke. It is the will of the American people.

Now a majority of Americans voted for Democrats as compared to the little minority that makes up YOU! Comparing the majority of Americans to people who are sympathetic and supportive to terrorists because they decided to vote different than the truly small minority (YOU) will not help your minor cause. OBVIOUSLY or you (the M - I - N - O - R - I - T - Y) wouldn't have lost now would you have? Hello? Think you'll ever be smart enough to learn your lesson? The majority of Americans (as compared to the minority...YOU) probably don't think so. The same thing happened to the Dems in 1994 and still you weren't bright enough. DUH! Just remember minority...It is the will of the American people.

All terror masterbation aside from the minority (YOU)...cutting funding to the soldiers in Iraq probably won't happen since there is now more than enough money to spare thanks to the Iraq reconstruction plan and subsequent companies (Halliburton, Bechtel etc.) all pulled out and left Iraq. We don't have to pay for the reconstruction of Iraq if we can't find any contractors dumb enough or greedy enough to take the job. Nobody is dumb enough to go to Iraq and that isn't a dig against the troops because they're following orders. None of you (the minority) will go because for you, its safer to wage war with other people's children while hiding beind your self-indulgent blog. How important! So many people were reached and you single-handedly saved the majority from losing power...NOT!

Just remember...it is the will of the American people. You (the minority) don't like it, you know where the door is.

Tim in PA:

Now we get to watch the same people who STILL whine that the troops "went to war without armor" go and screw over the military (again).

Quite frankly, I'm glad I'm not a soldier anymore.

If the Dems in the house can manage to make us pull out, then we've pretty much lost. The jihadis were counting on sympathetic media and lefty politicians to keep up the defeatist drumbeat, and several years of IED's have just paid off for them.

The last time modern Dem... (Below threshold)

The last time modern Democrats were in charge, they were kicked out of Office for 12 years.

So you want to compare statistics? Aside from the 40 years that the Dems held the House before that, here's a good one for you:

Never before in American electoral history has one party failed to pick up even a single seat from the opposition in the House. Allow me to prematurely say... congratulations!

The Democrats that held the... (Below threshold)

The Democrats that held the House for most of those 40 years have nothing in common with the Democratic Leadership of today. Lieberman was a hold out from those Democratic Glory Days and he was ostracized from the party.

Those of you touting the 40 year record are either too young to know there is a difference or been too busy trying to get Democrats elected to realize how the Democrats have changed.

FL 13, which you've called ... (Below threshold)

FL 13, which you've called for Buchanan, will go into a recount. The finally tally had him ahead by 368 votes, narrow enough a margin to call for an automatic recount. They're reporting some irregularities in the results from the electronic machines, too.

Dems had it for 40 years...... (Below threshold)

Dems had it for 40 years...Repubs lost it in less than 12! Can't spin that fact. Cannot spin anyway possible and that "Trojan Horse" Lieberman is no exception to the rule. Learn yer lesson!
