There’s a lot of finger-pointing going on this morning, especially in Trump’s direction.
But honestly, I’m just not ready to do that. The election is far from over and I want to find out what we win and by how much.
The way I see it, control of the Senate is still very much in play. We’re at 48 seats already, with Republicans leading in both Wisconsin and Nevada. Should we hold both of those we just need one more and I think there are two states still in play.
Georgia is undoubtedly headed to a runoff, and without the libertarian, on the ticket, there’s a solid chance Hershel Walker pulls this out.

Then there’s my dark horse in Arizona. Blake Masters is currently down by 5 points with 69% of the vote in. Yesterday it appeared that most of the problems in Maricopa County were in deep red areas, according to Kari Lake. So I’m hoping that is the deep red vote that still needs to come in and push Masters over the top. For what it’s worth, Lake is in a much closer race with the same votes remaining, so it could go either way. But I’m optimistic.
The House I believe will go, Republican. I’ve seen projections for Republicans winning 224 seats. That’s a far cry better than the 212 seats. It’s not a super majority but then it never was going to be one.
And like I suggested last night, even the best-case scenario of Republican victories was still going to amount to gridlock as far as legislation is concerned, with Biden still in the White House.
My bottom line is if the House plays out as it appears and we win control of the Senate, I’m a glass-half-full guy. Even if it means Republicans underperforming in an environment when they shouldn’t have, I still think there’s a lot to be hopeful about for the future, especially with how DeSantis and Florida candidates performed last night.
