Election results

Looks like the Republicans will sweep Virginia.
Cristie is up over Corzine in NJ.
Hoffman held a lead in the polls in NY.

Watch for the spin from the White house; the casual comments that this election means nothing, but listen for the gnashing of teeth and for the rhetoric to become ever more shrill as moderate Democrats begin to distance themselves from the Obama/Pelosi/Reid train wreck.

Locally we had a much larger than expected turnout. Portland ran out of ballots. Bangor reported 50% of registered voters had voted by 6PM. That's a huge turnout for an off year election. It's early but it looks like the gay marriage law will stand.
