Republican election surge hits U.S. state houses.

Posted by iusbvision on November 5, 2010

That is 18 state legislative chambers so far.

Now keep in mind that many of these new candidates won in gerrymandered districts that were designed so that a Republican could never win, just like Indiana 2 as half of Elkhart and other parts of our community were gerrymandered out by Democrats. Many other new Tea Party candidates barely lost by 1-2%.

Come February that little problem will be fixed by new GOP legislators.

In 2012 the Tea Party/Republicans may very well enjoy overwhelming majorities in both the House and Senate in Washington D.C..

Bottom line, even a mediocre candidate will beat Joe Donnelly in 2012 and he knows it.
