Republicans Win House Majority, Make Senate Gains in Wave Election

Riding a wave of voter frustration over the economy and the federal government

itself, the Republican Party sailed into the majority in the House of Representatives

Tuesday with victories projected to be on a scale not seen since the end of the New Deal.

Fox News projects that Republicans will see a net gain of about 65 seats in the House.

In races from Florida to Virginia to Indiana to Texas, voters were sending a rebuke

to the party in power by electing Republicans over Democratic incumbents. 

Seniority did not seem to matter. Longtime representatives were falling just

as hard as freshmen, succumbing to campaigns -- many of them backed by the

Tea Party movement -- that tied them to unpopular federal policies and proposals. 

The GOP will not seize power in the Senate, with wins by Democratic Leader

Harry Reid and a handful of others relegating Republicans to minority status

for at least another two years. But they came close enough that neither party

can be steamrolled by the other in the next Congress.

House Republican Leader John Boehner, now poised to succeed Nancy Pelosi

as speaker of the House, choked up as he addressed a jubilant crowd Tuesday night -

- he attributed his party's success to a popular rejection of big government

, big spending and big bailouts.

"It's clear tonight who the winners really are, and that's the American

people," Boehner said. "Across the country right now, we are witnessing 

a repudiation of Washington, a repudiation of big government and a

repudiation of politicians who refuse to listen to the American people." 

Boehner vowed to fulfill his party's "pledge" to cut spending and reduce

the size of government, saying he's willing to work with President Obama

if he "respects the will of the people" and changes course. Obama called

Boehner at midnight to congratulate him.

The GOP gains would exceed those made during the Republican

wave of 1994 when the party picked up 54 House seats. Not since

1938 has the party made such monumental inroads. With 218 seats

needed for a majority, Republicans so far have officially won 233,

while Democrats have won 174.

Though unable to reach a majority in the Senate, Republicans have

so far picked up six seats from Democrats and are holding down

a number of others -- giving little ground as they shoot for a stronger

foothold in the upper chamber. In a symbolic victory, GOP Rep. Mark

Kirk beat Alexi Giannoulias for Obama's old Senate seat in Illinois after

a hard-fought race. Conservative Pat Toomey narrowly defeated 

Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak, taking over for party-switching

Sen. Arlen Specter. And three-term Sen. Russ Feingold was the 

latest incumbent Democrat to go down, losing his race for reelection

in Wisconsin to Tea Party-backed businessman Ron Johnson.

"What we're sensing tonight is a huge case of buyer's remorse all

across America," Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell told

supporters Tuesday night, describing the GOP gains as a rejection of

the spending and "Washington takeovers" coming out of the federal government. 

In North Dakota, Republican John Hoeven beat Tracy Potter for

the seat held by outgoing Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan. In

Arkansas, GOP Rep. John Boozman trounced Democratic

Sen. Blanche Lincoln, denying her a third term in Congress. Lincoln's

vote for the president's health care overhaul was considered a turning

point for the senator's popularity. Former Sen. Dan Coats in Indiana

scored the first GOP Senate pick-up of the night, beating Democratic

Rep. Brad Ellsworth for the seat left by retiring Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh. 

But Democrats held onto a handful of key seats, most importantly

Nevada. Reid campaigned hard to retain his seat, with supporters 

casting Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle as dangerous and unfit to

serve. Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer was also able to fend off a stiff

challenge from Republican Carly Fiorina in California.

The party scored three victories for open seats. In West Virginia,

Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin beat John Raese despite an 

aggressive campaign by the Republican to portray Manchin as a buddy

to Washington Democrats and particularly Obama. In Delaware,

Chris Coons beat Tea Party-backed Senate candidate Christine

O'Donnell; in Connecticut, popular Attorney General Dick

Blumenthal beat professional wrestling mogul Linda McMahon


All those open seats were previously held by longtime Democratic 

lawmakers. The Delaware seat used to be held by Vice President Biden,

the Connecticut seat held by longtime lawmaker Chris Dodd and the

West Virginia seat held by the late Robert Byrd.

Republicans also won open Senate seats in Florida, Utah, Kansas,

Missouri, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Ohio. Those open seats 

were already held by Republicans, so the GOP wins there did not affect the balance of power. 

In the dramatic three-way race for an open Senate seat in Florida, 

Tea Party-backed Republican Marco Rubio beat his two opponents.

He was running against Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the GOP to

run as an independent, and Democrat Kendrick Meek.

In Kansas, Republican Jerry Moran won the seat held by

Sam Brownback, a Republican who won his race for governor

against Tom Holland. In Utah, Republican Mike Lee took the

seat held by Bob Bennett, who was defeated in the GOP primary.

In Ohio, Republican Rob Portman, an ex-congressman and former

White House budget director, beat Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher. And

in Kentucky, Tea Party-backed Rand Paul beat state Attorney

General Jack Conway after a bitter contest that delved into Paul's

religion and made for some tense debates. Paul won by a wide margin

despite a last-minute visit by former President Bill Clinton for Conway. 

Republican Kelly Ayote will succeed GOP Sen. Judd Gregg in 

New Hampshire, and Republican Rep. Roy Blunt will succeed

GOP Sen. Kit Bond in Missouri.

Republicans needed just 39 pickups to win the House; they needed

10 in the Senate to take the majority. With a handful of races too

close to call, Republicans so far have claimed 46 Senate seats to

Democrats' 49. Two independents vote with Democrats.

Among the slew of House victories, Republican Dan Webster defeated

outspoken liberal Rep. Alan Grayson in Florida's 8th District,

Republican Allen West beat Rep. Ron Klein in Florida's 22nd District

and Republican Sandra Adams picked up a Democratic seat in Florida's

24th District. Tea Party-backed Kristi Noem ousted Democratic

Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin in South Dakota. Republican 

Bill Flores beat moderate Democratic Rep. Chet Edwards in Texas'

17th District. Republican Lou Barletta, a strident foe of illegal immigration,

beat longtime incumbent Rep. Paul Kanjorski in Pennsylvania's 11th 

District. Longtime Democratic Rep. Ike Skelton, a committee chairman, was also defeated in Missouri. 

So-called purple states like Virginia followed a Republican trend on

Tuesday. Republican Robert Hurt took Virginia's 5th District,

defeating Rep. Tom Perriello who boldly campaigned with the

president; Republican Scott Rigell defeated Virginia Democratic

Rep. Glenn Nye in District 2. Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil also 

lost in Maryland's District 1, while Democratic Rep. Zack Space lost

in Ohio's District 18. Republican Larry Bucshon picked up Ellsworth's

Democratic seat in Indiana, where Democratic Rep. Baron Hill was also

defeated by a wide margin.

On the other side, Democrat John Carney picked up the Republican House

seat in Delaware formerly held by Rep. Mike Castle, who ran unsuccessfully 

for Senate. GOP Rep. Joseph Cao lost to Democrat Cedric Richmond in Louisiana.

Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Barney Frank held his seat against upstart Sean Bielat. 

With the strength of the Tea Party movement at their backs, GOP candidates were

confident the enthusiasm of their supporters would help propel them to historic pickups

in Congress and give them the leverage to put a check on the Obama administration's policies. 

Though Democrats barnstormed into Congress in huge numbers over the past two cycles

-- helped in no small part by Obama's historic presidential run in 2008 -- frustration 

over the economy and far-reaching legislation passed under the current administration

fueled a crop of candidates vowing to bring a renewed model of small-government

conservatism to Washington. 

The most visible and vocal driver of that political breed has been the

Tea Party, which aggravated several GOP primary contests by backing 

non-establishment candidates who, in many cases, won. A handful of those

nominees lost on the Senate side Tuesday, opening the movement up to

criticism that more tested candidates could have put the party over the 

edge. But the energy from the Tea Partiers was an undeniable factor in

getting Republicans out to the polls.

Paul heralded his victory in Kentucky Tuesday as a sign

of the Tea Party's vigor.

"We've come to take our government back," he declared in his victory

speech. "Tonight there's a Tea Party tidal wave and we're sending a message to them." 

While the Obama administration rejects the description of Election 

Day as a referendum on the president's policies, Republican candidates

said Tuesday night's returns had everything to do with Obama. And Pelosi. And Reid. 

Many of their candidates ran as much against Obama and the Democratic 

leaders in Congress as they did against their own opponents. Across the

country, Republican nominees cast their Democratic foes as tools of the

Obama administration, while Democrats returned fire by casting Republicans

-- particularly those backed by the Tea Party -- as extreme.

Republican leaders have warned that victories on Tuesday do not necessarily

translate to a mandate, and that they'll have to follow through on their

promises to cut spending and rein in government to gain the voters' trust.

Boehner stressed Tuesday that Republicans need to deliver.

A number of incumbents in both parties coasted to election, avoiding the

upheaval that marked so many races. Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick

Leahy easily won his reelection race, as did South Carolina Republican Sen.

Jim DeMint, who faced off against Democrat Alvin Greene, an unemployed

unknown who won his party's primary without campaigning.

Veteran Democratic Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Democratic Oregon

Sen. Ron Wyden, Democratic Hawaii Sen. Daniel Inouye and Democratic 

New York Sen. Charles Schumer won their reelection races. On the

Republican side, victories were sealed by Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, 

Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, Arizona

Sen. John McCain. North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, Louisiana Sen.

David Vitter, South Dakota Sen. John Thune, Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo and 

Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson. 

Freshman Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., also won her race to complete

the term vacated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton --

she will have to run again in 2012.

Thirty-seven governor's seats were also on the line Tuesday. 

Republicans scored a big pickup in Ohio as John Kasich beat

Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland, an enthusiastic Obama ally whom

the president tried to save. Republicans also notched a gain in Tennessee

with a victory by Bill Haslam and again in Iowa with a win by

Terry Branstad. Republican Tom Corbett seized a Democratic

seat in the Pennsylvania governor's race as did Scott Walker in

Wisconsin. Republican Gov. Rick Perry won his race for reelection

after a tumultuous campaign. And Republican Nikki Haley won the

race for governor in South Carolina, weathering allegations of

affairs which posed a distraction in the race.

In California, former Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown will return to

his old job after beating former eBay executive Meg Whitman.

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo will keep his state's

governor's seat in Democratic hands, beating Republican Carl Paladino.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper won the Colorado gubernatorial

race for the Democrats, beating Republican Dan Maes as well as insurgent

third-party candidate Tom Tancredo. Democrat Deval Patrick

won another term in Massachusetts, as did Gov. Martin O'Malley in

Maryland, where ex-Gov. Robert Ehrlich tried to mount a comeback.
