As a Marylander and a Republican, I don't even care about the Senate right now. I'm so proud of my home, and my fellow Marylanders. I am still in complete disbelief. I'm sorry if I'm being dramatic- Our last GOP governor, Bob Ehrlich won by a complete fluke against a horrendous candidate 8 years ago. The last one before him was Spiro Agnew. The state has only trended more and more to the left since Ehrlich, and most of us in the GOP seemed hopeless that we could ever elect another Republican. I hope this at least convinces my fellow moderate and conservative Marylanders not to move out, but to stay here and keep fighting! Alright I'm done now.
The unions are celebrating in PA and Wolf (D) won who will raise taxes.

Could Hogan's campaign become a blueprint on slaying the Blue Wall?

I don't think VA is going to be decided definitively tonight. Would be silly if Gillespie conceded now. He should ask for the recount.

It is shocking and I can imagine you are quite excited. I think you're about to have a Republican governor. Congrats.

Oh and just saw Connecticut's governor's race is currently seven votes apart. I know Malloy will hang onto his seat (New Haven hasn't finished counting) but dang, to be that close in CT of all places!

Ehrlich didn't win by a fluke. The alternative was Kathleen who no one thought could be a good governor. But Ehrlich was a horrible governor who did damage to the state. Let's hope Hogan will be better.

To all of you Democrats big enough to overlook politics, and your party on this night. And say Congratulations to the Republicans your sentiments are highly regarded on this night. And are appreciated.

And this is a great night for many of us. But not so easy. No more gridlock, lets get some good work done. No matter what the message was, there is a chance to get hopefully a lot of bills passed.

Hopefully the Republicans will not take this night for granted. As Obama did his. Many on this forum told many of us there was no message going to be sent to the Democrats. This night is a testament that people are tired of the bull and deceit, and arrogance of this administration. Who from day one, blame everyone but themselves for bad error in judgment. Republicans you have your work cut out for you. Now do something, and prove the critics wrong.
