STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Republicans defend their own governors' mansions and also picked up some in blue states
  • Democrats lost in Massachusetts, Maryland and Illinois
  • The lone bright spot for Democrats was in Pennsylvania

Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama's home state of Illinois elected a Republican governor on Tuesday night. Massachusetts will have its first Republican governor since Mitt Romney.

 

Stunning Republican gubernatorial victories came in reliably Democratic states, including those won overwhelmingly by Obama in 2012. Illinois ousted Democrat Pat Quinn in favor of Republican Bruce Rauner, while Maryland voters opted for Republican Larry Hogan over Democrat Anthony Brown. Republican Charlie Baker won a Massachusetts match-up against Martha Coakley, the state attorney general who lost a special Senate election to Scott Brown in 2010.

Republicans also continued their dominance of governors' mansions when a number of GOP leaders fought off stiff challenges from Democrats.

 

Republican Rick Scott defeated Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist in Florida's very tight and hotly contested race.

Wisconsin's Scott Walker and Georgia's Nathan Deal both narrowly won re-election in the face of well-financed Democratic challenges, according to CNN projections. Ohio's John Kasich, Iowa's Terry Branstad and New Mexico's Susana Martinez also dispatched weaker Democratic challengers. And bombastic Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage survived a stiff challenge from Rep. Michael Michaud to win a second term.

 

In Connecticut, the race between Democrat Dannel Malloy and Republican Tom Foley was too close to project a winner -- as was Colorado's battle between Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper and Republican challenger Bob Beauprez.

The lone bright spot for Democrats was in Pennsylvania, where Republican Tom Corbett was unseated by Democrat Tom Wolf.

The Republican Governors Association, the organization tasked with helping elect GOP governors, touted their victories on Tuesday night as proof their lawmakers have delivered "progress on jobs" and will take their states "in the right direction" for the next four years.

 

"Governor Walker is a doer; a true public servant who steps up to the plate, takes on the tough issues, and makes the hard decisions," RGA Chairman Chris Christie in a statement about the Wisconsin Republican.

 

"Governor Deal's ambitious leadership is the driving force behind Georgia's progress on jobs, the economy, education and criminal justice reform, and in his second term, he will continue to bring his vision for a more vibrant Georgia to life," Christie said about Georgia's governor.

 

Many of the Republican lawmakers on the ballot were swept into office in 2010 on a wave of Tea Party excitement. In the lead up to Election Day, Democrats had hoped Republicans would not be able to match that excitement, leading their candidates to stem the tide of Republican victories across the country in Senate and House races.

As polls closed across the country, that doesn't appear to be the case. Republican governors also held seats in party strongholds of Alabama, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

 

While Democratic governors in New York, New Hampshire, Minnesota, California and Oregon all kept their seats, only one Democratic challenger -- Wolf in Pennsylvania -- unseated a Republican incumbent, according to CNN's projections.

 

"Never before has an incumbent governor in Pennsylvania been defeated for re-election, but that changed tonight," Peter Shumlin, chair of the Democratic Governors Association, said in a statement Tuesday.

 

"Tom Wolf inspired voters in every region with his tireless energy on the campaign trail and his vision for creating the fresh start that the people of Pennsylvania so badly need."

Bueno los republicanos barrieron, yo me sospechaba ya porque los colegios estaban super llenos , mas que en las elecciones y habian muchos viejos y ellos decidieron regresar al pasado.  

 

De Baker lo que tengo que decir es que tiene mucha carisma....yo me vi tentada a votar por el pero me decia el no puede ser tan nice....eso es solo para ganar....pero el tiempo dira.  

 

Lo que si me impresiona mucho es que el sur esta lleno de negros y o no votaron o votaron republicano.

 

Ahora los mas tristes tienen que ser los penepes que ahora se aleja mas la estadidad.  Y cuidao si ahora comienzan a cortar benefecios a PR.....recuerden que la mayoria de los republicanos ver a la Isla como una carga.

Todo lo contrario 

Tradicionalmente los que han votado en contra de cualquier proyecto donde este incluida la estadidad han sido los republikkkanos

 

La mejor prueba es del fallido HR 2000 habian mas de 100 " sponsors"  democratas y un poco mas de una docena de Republikkkanos

Ahora comenzarán a salir teorías de que va a pasar, ya que llegaron los republicanos, afamados por muchos de sus detractores como los cucos de la política nacional, van a comenzar a demonizar a los rojos a diestra y siniestra, pero solo hay que esperar el año que viene para ver si en realidad se cumplen las "visiones" en HD, de algunos a los que no le agradan los republicanos, los malos de la película.

 

El fallido Hijo Roselló 2000, ( HR 2000 ), parece que lo echarán al zafacón según los videntes , por que los azules locales no mueven un dedo para que por lo menos lo miren a ver si  lo van a considerar o lo echan en la maquina de triturar papelitos, así que vamos a esperar que el PPD se defina y quizás nos tendremos que montar en su lancha, porque de otra forma nada va a pasar.

 

Coño, verdad que me parezco a Mobu con esta opinión? :hysterical:

Dark Money Helped Win the Senate

By THE EDITORIAL BOARD

 

NOV. 8, 2014

 

 

 

The next Senate was just elected on the greatest wave of secret, special-interest money ever raised in a congressional election. What are the chances that it will take action to reduce the influence of money in politics?

Nil, of course. The next Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has long been the most prominent advocate for unlimited secret campaign spending in Washington, under the phony banner of free speech. His own campaign benefited from $23 million in unlimited spending from independent groups like the National Rifle Association, the National Association of Realtors and the National Federation of Independent Business.

The single biggest outside spender on his behalf was a so-called social welfare group calling itself the Kentucky Opportunity Coalition, which spent $7.6 million on attack ads against his opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes. It ran more ads in Kentucky than any other group, aside from the two campaigns.

What is its social welfare purpose, besides re-electing Mr. McConnell? It has none. Who gave that money? It could have been anyone who wants to be a political player but lacks the courage to do so openly — possibly coal interests, retailers opposed to the minimum wage, defense contractors, but there’s no way for the public to know. You can bet, however, that the senator knows exactly to whom he owes an enormous favor. The only name associated with the group is Scott Jennings, a deputy political director in the George W. Bush White House, who also worked for two of Mr. McConnell’s previous campaigns.

 

The $11.4 million spent anonymously for Mr. McConnell, though, didn’t even make him the biggest beneficiary of secret donations, a phenomenon that grew substantially in this election cycle. In the 2010 midterms, when this practice was just getting started, $161 million was spent by groups that did not disclose donations. In this cycle it was up to at least $216 million, and 69 percent of it was spent on behalf of Republicans, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

 

In Colorado, at least $18 million in dark money was spent on behalf of Cory Gardner, the Republican newly elected to the Senate; $4 million was spent on behalf of Senator Mark Udall, the Democratic incumbent. In North Carolina, $13.7 million in secret donations was spent for Thom Tillis, the new Republican senator; $2.6 million went to Senator Kay Hagan, who was ousted.

 

Dark money wasn’t the only type of spending that polluted the cycle; this year there were 94 “super PACs” set up for individual candidates, all of which are attempts to bypass federal limits and allow big givers to support the candidates of their choice. (These donations have to be disclosed.) Of the $51.4 million these groups spent, 57 percent were on behalf of Democrats. Overall, of the $525.6 million in independent expenditures this cycle (excluding party committees), about 57 percent was for Republicans.

 

That money wasn’t just spent on attack ads. As Nicholas Confessore of The Times reported, it was used for tracking opponents and digging up damaging information, and expanding the ground game to turn out voters. Republicans used the money to set up a “research” group called America Rising, which existed only to sell embarrassing information and footage about Democratic candidates to Republican campaigns and super PACs.

Political operatives say this year was just a dress rehearsal for 2016, when there will be even more money, much of it secret, all benefiting the interests of the richest and best connected Americans. Given big money’s influence on Tuesday, the chances for limiting it are more distant than ever.

Mima por los chavos es que baila el mono, especialmente en todo lo que tiene que ver con política, para eso es que existen los cabilderos que a base de billetazos tratan de dirigir las acciones del congreso, aquí también pasa, aunque en menor grado. Esa acciones no tienen preferencia por partidos o colores.

Eso le toca averiguarlo a los que investiguen, si es que tienen un caso abierto. Sobre Anibal ese caso esta cerrado y otros pagaron.
