The GOP takeover

With our own city council vote taking place and the Atlanta mayoral race just up the interstate, many Lamar County residents were not paying attention to the heated gubernatorial races across the country. To recap, there were some heavy hitting elections at hand. Republican Chris Christie beat incumbent Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine in New Jersey while Republican Bob McDonnell trounced Democrat Creigh Deeds in Virginia. Democrats also prevented a shut-out by winning an upstate New York congressional seat. The victories could spell trouble for Democrats’ legislative agenda in Washington and stand as harbingers of GOP gains in the 2010 midterm elections. Republicans claimed the races Tuesday served as a collective rebuke of Democrats’ policies on Capitol Hill and at the White House. What are the ramifications of such an election? Does this mean big trouble in little Washington? GO!
