This is friggen great. Washington in 2008 overwhelmingly went for Obama. He beat McCain her by almost 18 points if I remember correctly. Washington has been a solidly blue state since 1992.
Now, fast forward two years. The democrats have saddled our children and grand children with a massive debt and deficit and could very well have destroyed our health care system as we know it today. Our unemployment is high and we are on the verge of a double dip recession.
The democrats are on the verge of losing a senate seat that they have held the last 18 years. Patty Murry, the forth most powerful person in the senate in our primary only garnered 46% of the vote. Dino Rossi, her challenger in November got 34% of the vote, Clint Didier got 12% and Paul Akers got 3%. Dino, Clint and Paul are all republicans. Their percentage of the vote, for you democrats who can't count, add up to 49% of the vote. US Senate race vote count
The blood is in the water.
US House District 2 is also in play as is US House District 3. Both of these districts are currently held by democrats.
Yesterday was a good day. :D
