Election: Democrats Should Be Nervous, Republicans Should Wake Up

Quick takes:

Hoffman loss: What She said. Michelle Malkin nails it:

Conservatives owe NY-23 candidate Doug Hoffman immeasurable gratitude. He overcame impossible odds (single digits just a month ago) to come within two points of defeating Democrat Bill Owens. Hoffman had zero name recognition. National Republican Party officials dumped nearly $1 million into the race on behalf of radical leftist GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava, who then turned around, endorsed Owens and siphoned off 5 percent of the vote with her name still on the ballot after she dropped out.

New Jersey: This election could have gone any way. New Jersey, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans are cess-pits of electoral despair. Corrupt. So a Christie win is a surprise. Will NJ reduce taxes and turn from their evil ways? Somehow, I doubt it. Still, President Obama put his pride on the line and campaigned there. And the Democrats were not buoyed by his transfixing personality… So, I’m guessing that everyone is back to politics as usual.

Virginia: Now this election will cause some Democrats heartburn. Barack Obama won handily here and guess what? The Virginians ain’t buyin’ what he’s currently sellin’.

Finally, there’s the little talked about California 10 election. This is a solidly liberal district and it very nearly fell to a Republican who got no big money help. Republicans need to stop giving ground and writing off the coasts. There are many conservative spots that would turn Republican. American citizens are sick of the inside-the-beltway types dictating from on high. Everything is up for change. In that environment, everything needs to be fought.
