A lot of people at BMG had their fingers crossed hoping that Busby would win the CA-50th for the Dems. There was a prior post on BMG to that effect IIRC.
Alas, it was not to be. Results here.
All the results are being sliced-and-diced but I think if the Dems cannot win in a special election where the former Congressman (an R) is in jail for taking bribes, with Bush’s poll ratings at 30%, and all the other preceived Rebuplican “problems,” it’ll be a challenge to take control of the House.
One can make the arguement that the R’s should have won by 10 or 20 points, not 3% or 4%.
Nonetheless, perhaps BMG can discuss.
