Orleans Parish (Mary's home area and firmly Democratic Party) is up to something. Most other cities in the state have over 90% reporting. Orleans is only reporting 60%. That city is politically dirty. The mayor is her brother and their dad is the former mayor & judge of New Orleans.

Never heard that from anyone

He should've just ignored Hogan and cruised to victory, but instead he made the little-known Hogan a household name, and one that moderate Democrats and blue-collar Dems kind of like.

Over the past week, both the Cook Report and RCP moved this race to the toss-up category. Not even "leans Democrat," pure toss-up. I still think Brown has an edge, but it will be a late night.
I agree that hogan ran a better campaign but he won't lower taxes. Maryland has some of the best schools in the country which taxes pay for. But I was really disappointed in browns campaign.

MSNBC still has it as a toss-up. They are focusing on governor races.

I expect nothing less than dirty politics from Democrats. She was speaking and now it makes sense why she was squealing. Her voice goes right through you.

It takes 60 votes for legislation to pass the Senate. Controversial bills are still not likely to get to Obama's desk.

For the record, I think it is ridiculous that it now takes 60 Senators to pass anything.
