Election ’02 Flash The Best They Can Do



Text  



The New York Times on the election: ” Our best hope, as this strange and messy year of decisions ends, is that the people who have won will always remember the large number of hands that were waving on the other side.” No doubt they would have said the same thing after a clear Democratic victory.

Election ’02 Flash Another Bite At The Apple?



Text  



Unlike when Bush was governor, the Republican landslide carried all the way down the ballot. Republicans added three seats in the Senate and look like they gained at least 15 seats in the House. Republicans now have a 19-12 edge in the Senate and at least an 87-63 edge in the House. With a Republican lieutenant governor and a Republican speaker, the possibility now opens that Texas will visit congressional redistricting next year. (The Legislature never attempted to craft a bill in 2001, meaning that they can do so next year.) If the R’s can cobble a coalition to pick up two D votes in the Senate, they can pass a modified version of Majority Leader Tom DeLay’s redistricting bill, which would bolster the Republican congressional majority by four to six seats.

Election ’02 Flash Ct Signs



Text  



Both of the congressmen targeted by the Democrats as possible pick-ups in Connecticut– Nancy Johnson and Rob Simmons– had fairly easy nights. Simmons, a former CIA operative, is an up-and-coming congressman on national-security issues. Johnson, one of the House’s war-horses, was pitted in a new Democrat-leaning district with another incumbent member. Their seats should now be secure in future races.

A reader, not me: “I’m guessing a lot of the Cornerites still up are, like me, in a pretty good mood. I was feeling expansive enough to make a contribution to NRO an hour and a half ago, but it’s been that long since you’ve had the link on top. Maybe it’s time you should post it again!”

Election ’02 Flash Libertarians



Text  



There’s a chance they could cost Republicans the Wisconsin governorship. The Ls are running Ed Thompson, the former governor’s brother–I wonder if some voters are confused. . . . If there are any other races that the Libertarians cost the Republicans, I’m sure John Miller will inform us pretty soon.
