Obama Finds the Promised Land Again

Republicans expand their control of the House of Representatives

Print Email

With a coalition of women and non-white voters as well as about 70% of the Jewish vote, President Barack Obama managed to win reelection by a narrow popular vote (at the time of this writing) and what looks to be a pretty sizable margin in the electoral college.

Democrats had a good night in the Senate and Republicans expanded their majority in the House of Representatives. In some of the races we highlighted earlier today, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach did not win his election in New Jersey and neither did Josh Mandel in Ohio or Linda Lingle in Hawaii.

Former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel beat Adam Hasner for a congressional seat and in the Sherman-Berman Showdown in California, Brad Sherman seemed to have an early lead. In a hotly contested race in Nevada, Representative Shelley Berkley lost her bid for the Senate. In Illinois, Brad Schneider won a seat in an upset against the incumbent in the 10th district.

Check back with us tomorrow for more news as tallies are finalized, hangovers set in, and the picture gets a little bit clearer.

Congratulations President Obama. Glad to have you as our leader for another 4 years!


ALOHA ADAM:…. you are WRONG!; the republicans LOST FIVE(5) seats in the House of Representatives; they did NOT “…expand their control….”!
