NEW YORK â€” In a stunning midterm victory for President Bush, the Republican Party won control of both houses of Congress early Wednesday morning.
The Grand Old Party recaptured the Senate when Republican challenger Jim Talent defeated incumbent Democratic Sen. Jean Carnahan in Missouri.
With three big Senate races still undetermined, the Republicans already had seized the 50 seats they needed to control the chamber. The Democrats had 46, and there is one independent.
"Our cause is not lessened by defeat or heartache of loss," Carnahan said in her concession speech at 2 a.m. EST. "The fire will not go out."
Well, here in PA we got a real liberal for governor, but it's good to see conservatism sweeping the rest of the nation.
The news radio station in Philadelphia (www.kyw1060.com) was hyping their election coverage with the the following: "This could be a referendum on the Bush Administration." I suppose they were hoping for a Democratic sweep. They were saying "could be a referundum" before the election, but now their not saying anything about a referendum.
How they would hate to admit that most of us are pleased with the current administration.
