For those who say Republicans lost yesterday because of Ohio?

How do they explain the Virginia elections?


@Bryan - We've added almost $5 trillion to the debt under Obama's watch in 3 years. Please explain your position. Oh, and feel free to tell that to the Virginia voters who voted for more Republican seats to be picked up in a single election, ever in that state.

Update 2:

@tonalc - Last I checked, in Mississippi, Phil Brant won the gubernatorial race there. In N. Carolina, what were there, 2 mayoral races and some Board of education races?

Update 3:

@tonalc, yes, Virginia, where republicans picked up more seats in a single election, than ever before.

    Ohio wasn't a complete win for the Dems. they rejected mandatory health care ie Obama Care. Win some and lose some but I'll give odds there will be more losses than wins next time around. "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".

    tonalc2: Symbolic or not it was still a slap in the Obama Administration's face.

    Virginia? You mean the state where the Democrats only lost one seat but held onto three others, and there is no majority declared, since there's going to be a recount of Reeves and Houck?

    We're looking at Ohio. And Mississippi. And New Jersey. And North Carolina.

    Edit @ Cptainamer: The vote on Obamacare is symbolic with no legal binding authority. The union vote was changing the law.
