America won big last night everyone. “WE THE PEOPLE” now control both houses of Congress!
Democrats wrested control of the Senate from Republicans Wednesday with an upset victory in Virginia, giving the party complete domination of Capitol Hill for the first time since 1994, as NBC News projected Democrat Jim Webb as the winner.
Webb’s apparent squeaker win over incumbent Sen. George Allen gave Democrats their 51st seat in the Senate, an astonishing turnabout at the hands of voters unhappy with Republican scandal and unabated violence in Iraq. Allen was the sixth Republican incumbent senator defeated in Tuesday’s elections.
Thanks to the people of Virginia, everyone who helped by donating or supporting Senator Elect Webb’s campaign and Senator Kerry for throwing his full support behind Jim Webb early on in the campaign!
The Democratic victory puts Senator Harry Reid in line to become Senate majority leader, unless of course the rumor pans out that Reid was willing to pass the position over to Hillary Clinton and she decides to takes. Slim chance.
