Wendy Davis Loses Big in Texas

The Lone Star State just got even redder.
—Tim Murphy on Tue. November 4, 2014 10:04 PM PDT

Texas Democrats started the 2014 election cycle with a dream of turning the state blue for the first time in two decades, buoyed by a progressive hero on the ballot and an influx of outside cash and organizers. Instead, the nation's biggest red state just got even redder. On Tuesday, for the fifth consecutive cycle, Texas Republicans swept statewide offices, including the race for governor, where Republican attorney general Greg Abbott cruised past Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis.

It was Abbott who made the decision to hire now-Sen. Ted Cruz to be the state's first solicitor general, and it was Abbott—more so even than retiring Gov. Rick Perry—who epitomized his state's antagonistic relationship with Washington, suing the Obama administration no fewer than 27 times in his first five years. ("I go into the office, I sue Barack Obama, and then I go home," Abbott likes to tell Republican audiences.) Lest he be tempted to move to the center, voters also tapped state Sen. Dan Patrick to be his lieutenant governor, a position that's disproportionately powerful in Texas because it serves a dual legislative and executive function. Patrick has said that God speaks to the world through Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, and warned that migrants are bringing "third-world diseases" with them across the border.

Winning in the Lone Star State was always supposed to be an uphill battle for Democrats in 2014, a point that Battleground Texas, the field-organizing outfit launched last spring by a group of Obama campaign volunteers, made clear from the get-go. When Davis jumped into the race, the time-frame shifted. As the group's executive director, Jenn Brown, told me in September, Davis' candidacy settled a chicken-and-egg dilemma that had been confounding organizers: "Great people don't want to run unless they feel there's an infrastructure to support them, but it's hard to get great infrastructure without great candidates."

Republican favorite Mike Rounds has won the U.S. Senate race to replace retiring South Dakota Democrat Tim Johnson, according to projections from the Associated Press.

The former governor beat out Democrat Rick Weiland and independent candidates Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie.
The Associated Press projection is based on exit polls.

With 323 of 714 precincts reporting at 9:30 p.m., Rounds had 51.5 percent of the vote, followed by Weiland at 28.4 percent, Pressler at 17.3 percent and Howie at 2.9 percent.

Exit Polls Indicate Nation Suffering from Severe Memory Loss
BY ANDY BOROWITZ

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Exit polls conducted across the country on Election Day indicate a nation suffering from severe memory loss, those who conducted the polls confirmed Tuesday night.

According to the polls, Americans who cast their votes today had a difficult time remembering events that occurred as recently as six years ago, while many seemed to be solid only on things that have happened in the past ten days.

RANDALL CHASE Associated Press
Updated 1 hr 47 mins ago
DOVER, Del. -- Delaware Democrat Chris Coons has been re-elected to the U.S. Senate, beating back a challenge from Republican businessman Kevin Wade.

This year's Senate race in Delaware was a foregone conclusion for many political observers and did not figure into the national battle between Democrats and Republicans for control of the Senate.

Wade faced huge disadvantages in fundraising and voter registration numbers against Coons, who served as chief executive of the largest county in heavily Democratic Delaware before he was elected to the Senate.

AP: Senator Jim Inhofe Easily Wins Re-Election

Posted: Nov 04, 2014 7:09PM CST
U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe is heading back to the Senate for a fourth term. Inhofe was easily re-elected to office in a general election Tuesday, November 4.

A Tulsa resident, the 79-year-old Inhofe is the senior senator from Oklahoma. The Republican defeated Democratic challenger Matt Silverstein.

He made his acceptance speech at the Republican Watch Party in Oklahoma City. He said they are celebrating that Republicans now have control of the House and Senate in Washington.

Inhofe is an outspoken proponent of a strong defense, pro-business legislation and limiting environmental sanctions on U.S. business, particularly the energy industry.
