A few months ago, everyone predicted the GOP would win a majority in the Senate. Instead, the unthinkable happened and Dems actually gained in the Senate. They also gained around ten seats in the House.
Gay marriage has been on various state ballots 33 times, and always lost. Until now. Last night four states approved gay marriage. And Tammy Baldwin became the first openly gay senator ever elected.
Two states legalized marijuana.
New Hampshire now has women in all their House and Senate positions, plus as their governor.
And the presidential election wasn’t as close as predicted. The GOP bet everything, including insane amounts of money, on Romney and lost. You can’t buy everything.
All in all, it was a great night for progressives.
I predict that Congress will pass immigration reform in the next four years, and probably before the next midterm elections. The Latino vote really hurt the GOP and they know it.
