Well, it appears that today was a Republican victory, in that the US House of Representatives was held, and the balance of power in the Senate was shifted back to the GOP. In spite of politics in the rest of the country, Illinois hosted a Democratic victory, despite the fact that someone my family knows was running on the ticket of God's party. I was also quite surpised to see that every congresional district in the state of my residence, that had an election, had a Libertarian candidate running. Tamara Millay lost big to the Carnahan and Talent machines, but still managed to come out of the election with just under 2% of the total vote. Very promising.
