Final thoughts

GOP managed to eek out victories in some very important races, particularly in the Rust Belt. Governorships in MI, OH, and PA will be huge, particularly as we approach redistricting and the 2012 election.

Senate wins in IL, OH, PA, and WI are also big.

Reid winning in NV is certainly a disappointment, as were the flameouts in CA, WV, and CT. WA looks likely to go Dem as well. CO is still too close to call, and looks likely to be headed to a recount.

The Palin-endorsed candidates got shellacked: Miller looks to be losing to Murkowski, Buck may well lose, Angle lost, O'Donnell lost, and Fiorina lost. This despite the fact that the GOP seemed to be winning across the country in the House.

I can't help but wonder what would have happened with Lowden in NV, Castle in DE, and Norton in CO. GOP gain would have been +9 instead of +6/7.
