It wasn't a perfect night as friends Coleen Rowley, running for US Congress in MN-2, and Mike Germain, running for State Senate in SD37 lost. And Governor Pawlenty squeaked by Mike Hatch.
But it was an awesome night at both the national and state levels. A convincing majority in the US House and a probable majority in the Senate will put the brakes on the train wreck that is the Bush Administration.
In Minnesota, in the south metro the dominoes fell all night as Republican legislators went down to defeat in "reliably" Republican territory. For this I am most pleased. And Pawlenty, like Bush, will have to learn to work with a legislature controlled by the opposition.
Tired this morning, but very, very happy.
