REPUBLICANS TAKE CONTROL OF HOUSE WHILE DEMOCRATS KEEP CONTROL OF SENATE
Republicans surpassed the 218 seats needed to gain power in House, while the Democrats held onto the Senate. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) also won his race.
With a projected net gain of more than 58 seats, Republicans will take control of the U.S. House in January. The number of Democratic seats won by the Republicans top the 54 seats gained in 1994 during President Clinton’s first term. The gains are the GOP’s largest since 1938, when the party captured 80 seats.
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), expected to become the next Speaker of the House, addressed supporters and said: “Across the country right now, we are witnessing a repudiation of Washington, a repudiation of big government and a repudiation of politicians who refuse to listen to the American people.”
Among Democratic casualties were two committee chairmen: House Budget Committee Chair Rep. John Spratt (D-SC), who lost to Mick Mulvaney; and House Armed Services Committee Chair Rep. Ike Skelton (D-MO), who was defeated by Vicky Hartzler.
In the Senate, Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) defeated Tea Party-backed Sharron Angle (R). In West Virginia’s special election to fill the U.S. Senator seat held by the late Robert Byrd’s (D), Governor Joe Manchin (D) won. In other hotly contested races, Richard Blumenthal (D) won the Connecticut Senate seat over former World Wrestling Entertainment chief executive Linda McMahon (R), as well as Chris Coons (D) defeated Tea Party-backed Christine O’Donnell (R) in Delaware.
Republicans did pick up some seats, including Pat Toomey (R) defeating Rep. Joe Sestak (D) in Pennsylvania; Ron Johnson (R) defeating Senator Russ Feingold (D) in Wisconsin; John Boozman (R) defeating Senator Blanche Lincoln (D) in Arkansas. In open seats, Rand Paul (R) won in Kentucky, defeating Democrat Jack Conway and Marco Rubio won in Florida, defeating Gov. Charlie Crist (I) and Kendrick Meek (D).

Nevada Voter Fraud: Did Harry Reid Really Steal Nevada?
A serious investigation into potential vote fraud needs to be launched immediately in Nevada, after incumbent Harry Reid beat Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle by a clear five points, despite pre-election polls showing Angle four points ahead, amidst suspicious evidence of vote flipping and other dirty tricks on behalf of the Reid campaign last week that were dubbed “criminal” by Angle’s campaign attorney.
Angle clearly had the momentum going into the election, having come from behind to take the lead over the Senate majority leader.
Four separate Rasmussen polls prior to the election had Angle ahead. Two weeks before Super Tuesday, she held a 50% to 47% lead over Reid. One week prior to voting, on October 26, her lead was extended to four points, with Angle at 49% and Reid at 45%.
The race was tight, but surveys clearly showed that Angle was gradually extending her lead as each week went by.
To have a nine point swing, from Angle enjoying a four point lead just a week before the election, to Reid winning the seat by a clear five points, is highly suspicious, especially given the chicanery that came to light just last week. Nine points is not within the margin of error for polls, especially those conducted by Rasmussen, which is considered to be one of if not the most credible polling agency.
When early voting started last week, reports out of Clark County, home to three quarters of Nevada residents, indicated that electronic voting machines wereautomatically checking Harry Reid’s name on the ballot.
The technicians that serviced those electronic voting machines were the pro-Reid SEIU (Service Employees International Union), the same corrupt union that was behind thousands of bogus voter registrations across the nation. The SEIU spent $44 million during this election cycle, nearly all of which went to Democrats.

Iowa Voters Kick Out Judges Who Favored Gay Marriage
Vote totals from 96% of Iowa’s 1,774 precincts showed Chief Justice Marsha Ternus and Justices David Baker and Michael Streit with less than the simple majority needed to stay on the bench.
Their removal marked the first time an Iowa Supreme Court justice has not been retained since 1962, when the merit selection and retention system for judges was adopted.
The decision is expected to echo to courts throughout the country, as conservatives had hoped.
