    Nbc says there are a lot of votes left in Broward, Dade, and Alachua. Alachua could swing the election to the Dems.

      Yep I was sweating this one out. Well I will take keeping a socialist from becoming Governor and gaining some Senate Seats over losing the House.

        im not worried about the house. it was taylor made for dems. a whole bunch of seats up for pubs and only a couple for dems, in a year where pubs control all which historically has always meant a shift b/c the electorate votes for gridlock every dang time. considering all that, taking the house by a couple seats while losing even more footing in the senate is fine.

        dems cant do anything with a small majority in only the house. trump still getting more scotus picks through when ginsburg keels over and easier now as well. tax cuts will stay and any ridiculous bills dems try to push he'll just laugh at and never sign. if its total gridlock in congress and nothing financial/budgetary changes from January forward we are all winning biggly lol.

          Yep believe it or not Dems having the House helps Trump in 2020 due to the Reps not having all 3 and people liking split govt mostly.

            I am sad the house is gone but getting Desatis and Scott in helps as does keeping and expanding the senate.

            Socialist darlings Beto and Gillum lost. I hope Abrams loses in Georgia too. Oprah and Hollywood backef Abrams.

            oh absolutely. it nearly guarantees him easy victory; and he now has a clear opponent to go after --> a do nothing congress lead by a bunch of rabid left wing socialists and commies whod rather spend millions of tax payer dollars on made up scandals and ridiculous impeachment investigations than actually doing something beneficial for the American people. The long game is overwhelmingly positive for trump.

                And don't forget having career killer Obama come down and campaign for you! The gift that just keeps giving to the Republicans!

                  unbelievable and I'm also happy some of Oprah Winfrey's favorites lost tonight like Robert O'Rourke Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams.

                  I was truly concerned that hurricane Michael would cost us both elections tonight after the Panhandle got wiped out several weeks ago. but it did not thank God.

                    Some amazing results in this race.

                    First, RD won the race even though he lost Duval county by 16k votes. That's very surprising.

                    Also, the turnout in the rural counties had to be at record levels for Rs for this to happen.

                    Lastly, is there a more stark indictment on the inaccuracy of political polls than this race?

                    While I was cooking dinner last evening, I caught a 530pm live TV shot from Tally at the Gillum headquarters and it was pouring rain.

                    I mentioned to my wife, "I hope that is a omen for how the night goes for them!"

                    Little could I imagine that it was more telling of the Noles 3pt percentage.
