Sen. George Allen has conceded the VA Senate race to James Webb, giving control of the Senate over to the Democratic Party. Allen did the right thing by conceding, as it was clear that the margin in the race was simply too large for him to have any ground to contest the race. Allen may [...]

Again, thank heavens Pawlenty won. Mike Hatch would have been a disaster for this state. While Pawlenty’s margins were razor thin, it’s still a victory.

I’ve got to head out the door, but three very quick thoughts before I do: Thank God Pawlenty won. The Republicans wounds were largely self-inflicted. Now the Democrats have to lead. Good luck with that, Speaker Pelosi. I’ll have some more analysis later today.

That isn’t a huge surprise, and over the long term, it’s probably beneficial to the Republicans in two ways: The first is that Nancy Pelosi is emblematic of the liberal left, and conservatives outnumber liberals by [...]
