[quote]Rep. Allen West loses reelection
11/07/12 01:34 AM ET
Freshman Republican Rep. Allen West (Fla.) lost to Democrat Patrick Murphy in one of the closest, nastiest races in the nation, according to MSNBC election projections.
Despite out-raising Murphy nearly 5-to-1 and launching biting attacks on the Democrat, West fell short by just over 1,000 votes, with 97 percent of Florida's 18th District reporting, according to MSNBC.
West, a Tea Party favorite, had not conceded, and it was unclear whether he would request a recount.

Former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) beat Republican opponent Todd Long and will return to the House for his second, non-consecutive term, the Associated Press reported.
Grayson is remembered for his fiery temper — he once called some members of the GOP "right-wing lunatics" — and liberal politics. He will represent Florida's new and heavily Democratic 9th District.
"It feels great," Grayson said Tuesday night, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "I'm going to do my best when it comes to jobs, when it comes to housing, when it comes to education [and] when it comes to human needs."
Grayson was unseated in 2010 by Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.).

Obama said he would respect Puerto Rico's vote, which would now be sent to the US Congress for approval.
It has been over 50 years since Hawaii and Alaska were added to the Union, and it boggles my mind to think that we would need to change the flag and a whole other shitload of things by adding PR to the USA.

[quote]Puerto Rico votes for statehood.
Yes but the referendum did not include the current status amongst the choices for political status, only a separate question "do you want the current territorial status?" to which pro-independence people also answered No.
Then, separately, you had to choose between Statehood, Independence or a new Sovereign Free State that was a mashed-up, poorly worded choice that did not mean current status. So Commonwealthers (like me) abandoned that question altogether and voted only YES on the "current status" one which lost to a margin not acceptable for serious US consideration (less than two-thirds and with the help of Nationalists). In any case, statehood is a pipe dream (and run here by a lot of Republican-minded 1% anti-gay/abortion Romney types).
More importantly, statehood party's incumbent governor lost (in a very tight race that inevitably will be recounted or at least questioned) because he fired a lot of government and forgot about the poor. Same ol'same ol'.
And Most importantly, gay-friendly female San Juan candidate for mayor beat 12-year incumbent statehood mayor. And the pro-statehood state represantative in Congress who did win (they have no vote) is thankfully a Democrat chummy with Obama.

Here in the NY 24th, where projections have the Democrat Dan Maffei retaking his former seat in Congress, he has actually not declared victory because minor-league freshman Teabagger Ann Marie Buerkle has not conceded.
Maffei is leading by some 12,000 votes with more than 21,000 absentee ballots outstanding. That should hold for Maffei.
But this race was closer than it needed to be because the Green Party candidate got around 8 percent of the vote, and surely most of those votes would have helped widen the Democrat's lead had the Greens not been on the ballot.
I'm all for the Green Party expanding where they can win in local races, but in close, important races sometimes I wish they would consider staying back and helping the Dems win the tough ones.

Puerto Ricans will never give up the trillions of dollars of SSI they collect (illegally) from the U.S. It is illegal to live outside the US and collect SSI. But Puerto Ricans do it by "moving" in with relatives in the US (NY mostly), filing for SSI, having the checks deposited into a bank they can access in PR and move back home to PR. Social Security knows this is happening because many Puerto Ricans never use their Medicaid (they can't use it in PR). All other SSI recipients use the hell out of Medicaid. It has been deemed politically incorrect to do anything about it so the study SSA regional office in NY did years ago to prove this has been shelved.

Several California races still too close to call
November 7, 2012 | 10:06 am
Election-night tallies in several congressional and legislative races left open the possibility the outcomes could change when provisional and remaining absentee ballots are counted.
The California secretary of state's office listed seven such battles on its website.
Among the most closely watched were the fights between Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Gold River) and Democrat Ami Bera, who had a lead Wednesday morning in the District 7 race of fewer than 200 votes.
Another was the contest between Rep. Brian P. Bilbrae (R-Carlsbad) and environmental attorney Scott Peters of San Diego. Peters had a lead of about 600 votes Wednesday morning.
Both national parties and outside groups spent heavily on those races.

Supreme Court Justices do often seem to plan their retirements around who is in the White House. That said, they also delay and hang onto power, hoping that the political landscape will become (even) more favorable. The saddest case is Thurgood Marshall, who stayed on long past his prime until he had no real choice but to resign and then saw his "black seat" go to Clarence Thomas. His final public appearances were horribly bitter.

How ill is Ruth Bader Ginsburg? She's had cancer. And, of the right wing, who is oldest/in poorest health?

R105, you are right and the more the merrier!

I don't know about the health of the right-wing contingent, but Scalia is the oldest.

Hopefully this will be the end of what was left of Rasmussen's credibility.

[quote]And Bernie Sanders won in a walkover.
Yup! Sanders won 71% of Vermont last night. Vermont is actually the most liberal state in the country now.
Look at the sweep of it on this map!

I wish I could move there.
Has Florida turned blue yet?

I love Bernie Sanders, and Vermont for voting for him.

Obama did almost as well as Bernie Sanders in Vermont - 67% of the vote, with all but 2 counties blue.
Vermont is Obama's best state in the entire continental 48 (Only Hawaii had a higher vote %)
Take a look!
