I can't help but be happy about Franken. And honestly, I think there could be something to learn about how he campaigned, and why he succeeded when other Dems didn't.

I don't want to gloat, however. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

73. Also Minnesota

where my once red suburban state senate district not only went with Franken and Dayton it also returned two DFLers back to the State House of Representatives.

Sadly, though it stuck with Erik Paulsen for 3rd District Congress. Probably because the SOB has an undeserved reputation as a moderate and does his best to avoid face to face meeting with voters and anyone who dares run against him. Something those who are not active in politics would be aware of. (And he runs such nice ads with his lovely family - who could help but like him )

49. Hello to you too :)

Mostly red suburb in a blue state, but we finally got rid of Biggert and re-elected Foster!

I wrote Biggert a letter in the fall of 2003 imploring her not to vote for the IWR that gave GW Bush the green light to invade Iraq. Of course she voted for it, and her reply letter to me (probably the same position paper she sent en masse) explained we needed to invade Iraq because 9/11 showed the deadly combination of terrorists and weapons of mass destruction. I excoriated her for insulting the intelligence of voters, pointing out that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 and those terrorists were armed with box cutters.

I used to have Biggert too. Then the Illinois dems squeezed the reddest bits of DuPage into one district (with my neighborhood included). And they gifted us with Peter Roskam (R- ALEC).

75. Texas (Houston)

the large cities here all vote blue.


2012 for Obama:

* Travis County, home to Austin, the state's most liberal city. Romney trailed with just over 36 percent of the vote.

* Dallas County appears to be on its way to becoming almost as reliably Democrat. Obama took just over 57 percent of the vote to Romney's nearly 42 percent.

* Bexar County (San Antonio), Obama tallied nearly 52 percent to Romney's 47 percent. --> this is where Julian Castro served as mayor before being tapped for HUD

* Harris County - Around Houston, for example, Romney took 52 percent of the vote in Fort Bend County, 66 percent in Brazoria County and nearly 80 percent of the vote in Montgomery County. --> I am in Brazoria (worked on the campaign in 2008 - we lost to Hillary in Brazoria. Latina women especially loved Hillary).



Issues in Texas include gerrymandering and limiting access to vote. But the biggest issue with Texas is demographics. This is a very large state and it will take a couple more cycles for the old white folks to die out in numbers significant enough to put Texas in play ... the younger generations are majority latino/black/asian.
