Yup, the 2009 elections are here today. This is a precursor to 2010, and some analysts are saying that this is a report card of how President Obama is doing. The GOP swept the Democrats taking all top 3 seats in the Virginia races and for the first time since 1997 there will be a Republican Governor. Here are the results of the election:

New Jersey:

Chris Christie, (R) 49% of the vote.  – Winner

Jon Corzine, (D) 44% of the vote.

Christopher Dagget, (I), 0.5% of the vote.


Robert McDonnell, (R), 58% of the vote.   – Winner

R. Creigh Deeds, (D), 41% of the vote.
