FL, not sure off hand the other. And if I'm reading this right , GOP could end up with no net gain in the senate.

FL is in jeopardy. Scott beat Nelson but it's going to go to a recount and it was a razor thin margin for Scott. Wouldn't take a lot of "stumbled upon" unaccounted for Nelson majority ballots to swing that.

Is GOP expected to pick up any of the remaining House seats?

Pissed that CT shit the bed also. I don't care what party you're with, when you live in what was not too long ago the #1 economic prosperous state in the country that now currently resides at #50 and the current dem gov lost GE to Massachusetts of all places as well as losing Aetna and you continue to vote for the same people, you're an asshole. More frustrating is that last night's race and the one before were close. So clearly there are a sizable amount of people who are fed up, but then shitholes like Bridgeport fuck it all up. Bridgeport should be completely disqualified from getting to decide a state election. And I'm thinking now that states need their own electoral college systems.

I'm completely disgusted. I bought into the Stefanowski hype, I wish I could have voted for him but moved out of CT 8 years ago. Lamont is going to further cripple that state, I feel sorry for my parents and my sister & brother-in-law who still live there. I know my parents made the right decision, but my sister & her husband are complete Kool Aid drinkers and I know they probably think Lamont is the bees knees. Can't wait for them to complain about how they have to pay a toll every time they drive down to Darien to visit Grammie & Granddad

That's the problem is many states. The large cities end up making the decisions
for the whole state. The district where I live gets part of it's voters from Philly.
Even though the county is predominantly Republican I now have a Dem rep
because the asshats in Philly all vote that way and won out.

NY is about the ultimate example of a city fucking over a whole state.

You've got Amish bozos riding around in horse and buggies in way upstate mountain goatville who get fucked over by a bunch of metrosexual faggots in Manhattan.

At least out here in Indiana the suburban rural districts have the power to override the stupid shit the FREE SHITTUMS try and pull in Indianapolis and Gary.

I was chatting with a friend who lives in FL last night about that and he wasn't worried about recount shananagins.

Mississippi is the other one. It was a special election to replace sickly Thad Cochran, but none of the four candidates got 50% of the vote, so there's a runoff in a few weeks. It looks like enough (R) votes for Hyde-Smith to win easily. She would've won if this was a regular election.

Upstate NY is perpetually struggling while sitting on a gold mine of natural gas. But they can't touch it because Fracking is bad for... reasons (even though the EPA itself ruled it safe). Of course the real reason is NY Dems don't want a source of wealth in conservative parts of the state giving them more power and influence. Gross example of putting base political interests over a chance of prosperity for all. Fuckers up there should revolt.

Mills pledged to usher in an era of “open doors” and collaboration in state government. She also vowed to change the tone after eight years of LePage’s combative style, and to fight Trump administration policies on environmental, immigration and welfare.

It really is incredible. Just about any quality machine or tool or preciscion measuring device used to make other things came out of CT. It is all gone, in what 50 yrs? I mean Bridgeport is one of the most well known milling machines in the world, to the point where their name is like Kleenex and Bandaid. Gone.

Tell me about it. We just lost the state Senate to the dems. There is now no firewall to stop the left from finishing this state off.

I’m expecting some seriously fucked up gun legislation by January.

5 years till my kids are out of college. I can get out of here in 5 years.

I was just talking to my little brother out on Long Island, and he's getting the shit kicked out of him in taxes, business regulations, and living expenses. That poor bastard is just beat down.

Georgia's GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp resigns as secretary of state
CNBC.com
  • Republican Brian Kemp resigned Thursday as Georgia secretary of state.
  • Kemp, who is running for the state governor's office against Democrat Stacey Abrams, has faced accusations of using his job as the state's top election official to influence his gubernatorial bid.
  • While Kemp has declared victory, Abrams has not conceded and NBC News still considers the contest too close to call.

Gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp adjusts his tie before speaking to volunteers and staff at his campaign office as they hold a phone banking event in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., November 5, 2018.
Georgia's Republican secretary of state, Brian Kemp, resigned Thursday as his gubernatorial race with Democrat Stacey Abrams remains too close to call.
In a statement, the Georgia secretary of state's office said Kemp submitted his resignation effective at 11:59 a.m. Thursday. The Republican was the state's top election official as he ran to become its governor, and stepping down means he would not certify the final vote count — despite his ability to influence the election previously.

He declared victory Wednesday in his contest with Abrams, which was marked by concerns about Kemp using his current office to suppress votes. Abrams, a former state House minority leader who aims to become the first black woman to serve as a U.S. governor, has not conceded yet.

The Republican candidate had won roughly 50.3 percent of the votes counted in the race as of Thursday morning, according to NBC News tallies. The figure is important because, if Kemp secures less than a majority of votes, the contest will go to a runoff.

On Thursday, the Georgia Democratic Party called Kemp's "self-coronation" a "legally meaningless political stunt." The party noted that the state had not officially certified votes in the race.

A lawsuit filed by Georgia voters on Tuesday in a federal court in Atlanta accused Kemp of using "the official powers of his office to interfere in the election to benefit himself and his political party and disadvantage his opponents." In a statement to NBC News on Tuesday night, Kemp spokeswoman Candice Broce called the litigation a "twelfth-hour stunt."
Democrats and voting rights groups argued Kemp should have stepped down before the election. Former President Jimmy Carter — who served as Georgia's governor and lives in the state now — called on Kemp to resign.

"In order to foster voter confidence in the upcoming election, which will be especially important if the race ends up very close, I urge you to step aside and hand over to a neutral authority the responsibility of overseeing the governor's election," Carter wrote in October, according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Associated Press.

Voter suppression concerns included roughly 50,000 voter registrations — largely affecting black voters — being put on hold. Reports of long lines and voting machine issues also surfaced.

Florida's Nature Coast
The major races here in FL are under threat of recount, which will be a vehicle for Democrats to steal the seats. Shockingly (not really), the most blue libtard counties in FL claim to still be counting mail-in ballots. Now, these were supposed to be counted, tabulated, and submitted within 30 minutes of the polls closing. It's two days later and they are still counting?

Rubio went off about it today.

Rubio warns of Dem lawyers 'descending on Florida' to 'try and steal' key statewide races

How close these races were spells trouble for the future. With all the people relocating here, I fear the libs will eventually take over. Too many idiots who come here to escape the consequences of shitty Democrat policies end up voting for shitty Democrat politicians once they get here. I encourage any non-libtards to relocate to FL from shitty high-tax states before it's too late.

At least my county is solidly Republican. Scott won 61% of the vote, Nelson got 38%, and the rest were rubes who did write-ins. DeSantis got 61% of the vote, Gillum got 38%, and the rest were four minor-party candidates and again rubes who did write-ins. The other races (Congressman and Attorney General) had similar breakdowns.
