  • Florida senator-elect Marco Rubio is giving one of those "everyone can achieve their dreams" victory speeches. #election #
  • Christine O'Donnell – "I'm not a witch" – the defeated Republican/Tea Party candidate in Delaware's Senate race, is speaking now. #
  • By losing Delaware, West Virginia (Robert Byrd's old seat) and Connecticut (Biden's old seat), the GOP likely can't win Senate control now. #
  • Correction: Delaware is Biden's old seat, not Connecticut. Dems are winning both. Thanks @tospeakofpebble #
  • 538 puts the Republicans chances of taking over the Senate at 1% but the House at 95%. http://auspol.info/b2UR4v – based on early counts. #
  • RT @cqpolitics: Barney Frank wins re-election. http://bit.ly/94J402 #
  • Jerry Brown has been elected Governor of California for the third time. Last held the job 1975-83. That's what I call a comeback. #
  • @Cracked_Canoe Since Brown was 1975-83, I was thinking Malcolm Fraser might be a better prospect… in reply to Cracked_Canoe #
  • Meg Whitman, former chief executive of eBay, spent $140 million on her losing campaign against Jerry Brown for Gov. of California. #

  • @brisvegas1 Perhaps Californians know them best? Seriously, just shows the Dems are still safe in California. Very reassuring for Obama. in reply to brisvegas1 #
  • @mumbletwits Have you seen any turnout figures today? in reply to mumbletwits #
  • @yatespj I think it's the biggest ever, or close to that. Clinton lost 54 in 1994. It's bigger than the Watergate swing in 1974. in reply to yatespj #
  • This is my definition of optimism: http://auspol.info/cDm2vd #
  • Proofreading at the Herald-Sun: http://twitpic.com/33is8k #
  • @prestontowers The Greens got 7.86% in Mallee in the federal election, up 3.69% – pretty respectable, considering. in reply to prestontowers #
  • @seamus_polsci They often date them at midnight when an article for tomorrow's edition is posted earlier in the evening. in reply to seamus_polsci #
  • @leeborkman Obveously. in reply to leeborkman #
  • @HelgaSvendsen I have a sentimental attachment to the Sunraysia Daily – how dare you attack it! in reply to HelgaSvendsen #
  • I suspect Gail Kelly's voice and demeanour have the same effect on bank customers as Gillard's do on Liberal supporters. #Lateline #
  • @HelgaSvendsen That's the Rural Press approach to the online versions of their papers. A few teasers, no real content. in reply to HelgaSvendsen #
  • I'd never really thought of Angus Houston as the Aust. equivalent of the head of the People's Liberation Army. [Kevin Rudd on #Lateline #
  • "Copulating Rodents" – another one of those nights on #Lateline #
  • Tony Jones: "It's a big world out there for a leader who'd rather be sitting in a classroom… will you be guiding her?" #Lateline #
  • Jones asks Rudd about fake budget meetings with out Lindsay Tanner. Rudd says Tanner will always be a "very, very close friend of mine". #

  • @Steph_Philbrick @dootsiez No, Sam Seaborn wouldn't want a seat in the California Senate. He ran for the Federal House. #
  • This dead Democrat winning a seat in California is nowhere near as interesting as the case of Mel Carnahan in Missouri in 2000. #
  • Carnahan was the Governor, running for election to the Senate against the incumbent John Ashcroft. Carnahan died in a plane crash … #
  • ..but went on to win the election. The Lt. Gov. who succeeded him appointed Carnahan's wife to the Senate seat won by her late husband. #
  • President Bush appointed Ashcroft Attorney-General. He went on to controversially oversee new national security laws after Sep. 11. #
