    Jolly did win the Florida special election against Alex Sink a few days ago.

    Looks like the GOP got on the scoreboard early.

    Republican Jolly wins Florida special election

    In the first major test of voter attitudes in 2014, Republican David Jolly won a closely watched special election for the U.S. House in Florida Tuesday, handing his party a narrow victory in a battleground district where Republicans and Democrats spent millions of dollars fine-tuning their messages on national issues ahead of the fall midterm elections.

    Jolly's win in a Gulf Coast district just west of Tampa illustrated the political toxicity of the law known as Obamacare. Jolly favored repealing and replacing the law, which was a central focus of the campaign, while his Democratic opponent did not. The law's botched rollout has heightened Democrats' anxiety eight months before the midterm elections. The Florida result is likely to raise their concerns.

    With Jolly holding the seat for Republicans, Democrats must pick up 17 seats to win back the House majority in the fall, a task widely viewed as extremely difficult given historical trends, President Obama's political woes and the limited pool of competitive seats up for grabs. Jolly will have to defend his seat in the fall.

    As expected, the margin was close Tuesday. Jolly outpaced Democrat Alex Sink by about 3,400 votes out of 183,000. The Associated Press called the race for Jolly less than an hour after polls closed.

    The handicappers now have it at between a 4 and 6 seat senate pickup for the GOP.

    With a 7 or more seat pickup being more likely than 3 or less.

    I haven't really looked at the data in detail; but coming from the general buzz, I expect the Republicans to gain ground overall.

    Another wave election. Dems lose 800 seats nation-wide. GOP takes Senate, winning 8 seats.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.

    McCain alone will make absolutely sure repubs don't get the senate back via his warmongering. is he up this year? if so, i'm routing for the dem. unless the dem wants to arm Nazi Mafioso in kiyv too.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    These elections will give citizens the opportunity to choose between a corporatist with a D next to his/her name and a corporatist with an R next to his/her name. In each election, a corporatist will win. That's a good thing because if there's one demographic that is truly oppressed in the US, it's corporations.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
