    A draw. But, that is what the dems needed. For them, it seemed to show the ability to reconfirm their base and move some votes to their side. The repubs had momentum and had to be hoping for better numbers, not necessarily wins. Gives the analysts on both sides something to reassess instead of just saying that Trumpism is a "winner".

    Accurate assessment. Dems won what they should have given the races.

    ETA. The media is calling it a big dem win. I think it just means they aren't bleeding as much as some would believe and that the sides are firmly entrenched.

    Speaking of bleeding. Any idea what kind of financial support the two Dem candidates got from the DNC if any? Talk about an open sucking chest wound.

    That they still won handily given the weak DNC simply confirms that people are entrenched.

    slight loss, mainly because establishment RINOs haven't learned anything.

    Besides the media and some locals, is anyone else celebrating?
    We just need to keep perspective. The process is a marathon and not a sprint.

    Were the Repubs in the races that lost RINOs? All I heard is mumblings that the Dem who won NJ was planted by Goldman Sachs because of marijuana stocks that they control. :doh

    You'd rather have a Dem win than a RINO? :scratch
