Oh hell no! Can I at least get some rest before this shit starts all over again?
Their majority of gubernatorial seats larger by one, Democrats are taking aim at key states in 2010, including California, Minnesota and Connecticut. Republicans, who successfully re-elected four incumbents on an election night of big GOP losses elsewhere, want to win back Kansas, Ohio and Pennsylvania, among others.
At stake is control over the redrawing of legislative and congressional maps and the chance to influence the 2012 presidential election through governors’ bully pulpits and fundraising machines.
At the end of an Election Day in which 11 governorships were decided, eight incumbents were re-elected, split evenly between the two parties. Democrats won the three governors’ posts where no incumbent was running, and flipped one of those – Missouri – from Republican to Democratic hands.
But Tuesday’s results gave both parties reason to be optimistic about 2010.
Tell me what you think…
