Three days after Scott Brown pulled in upset in Massachusetts, the GOP is finally getting it’s grove back and thinks it has a chance to get more seats in the 2010 midterm elections. Some though still doubt it, just saying it was just one election. BWC sees this has a chance for the GOP to take the Tea Party group into their hands and get them to vote for their running mates, if they get back to principles.

“This was a wakeup call. This was an unavoidable signal that their governing style was not working.” Said a Democratic Analyst. Even liberals see this has a major set back to their plans, including Health Care, Cap and Trade, and more.

The GOP on the other hand, loves to see the crumbling and disorganizing on the democratic party. They can use it’s weakness to take over Congress again, they think. As we said earlier, if the Republicans plan to get the growing numbers of the Tea Party middle, they will need to go back to principles and follow the U.S. Constitution.

However, Republicans still face two very big hurdles before they can take over Congress. They still need 40 seats in the House and ten seats in the Senate, a tough challenge in any year and one that will surely lead to trench warfare for the more than 40 weeks before Election Day.

This 2010 will be one interesting year..

Scott Brown to make Historic Upset in Northeast January 16, 2010

As people are ready to vote Scott Brown now leads the Democrat attorney general for Ted Kennedy’s seat, a poll released just shows. Bill Clinton & and John Kerry (D) are backing their leftist colleague, but conservative shows are supporting Scott Brown. That support may lead to a victory for Scott Brown (R), many believe. Many believe this due to the fact how this current congress is spending us into a huge amount a debt and act like it’s no big deal. The people will show congress what is really coming up ahead in 2010. Obama was supposed to go out to Massachusetts and campaign for the attorney general, but decided not to go, the White House pointed out.

Scott Brown currently is set to win, earning about 1 million dollars a day compared to the Democrat Martha Coakley  who is making far shorter than that.

I think this shows how the people are angry with Congress and the Obama administration, it reflects a lot more than the elections in November reflected. What are your views? Who do you think will win? Comment below.   Ted Kennedy has held this seat for a very a long time, and a Republican coming in and taking it away – is a huge deal.

Like we said earlier, we were going to have a follow-up article once the all the votes came in. The major question is, are these election results a report card on President Obama and how he’s doing, or was this just a reflection of local issues. BWC has looked at the numbers, how people voted, and news network reports.  After gathering the data it appears that Independent voters sided with the Republicans in New Jersey in a clear message to the Democratic party and Obama.  Afterall, Obama had campaigned in New Jersey for Deeds 5 or 6 times stressing how important it was to keep the Democrats in power in that state.  

In Virginia, last year Obama carried this state by 6 points. This year was a different story where there was a clear 25 point swing in favor of the Republican, Robert McDonald. Reportedly, the people of Virginia where more concerned about jobs and the economy over anything else – Obama nor the proposed Healthcare were factors. However, the GOP took all top seats in Virginia which hasn’t happened in 15+ years. Robert McDonald won with 58% of the vote over Chris Deeds (D) who managed only 41% of the vote.

Next, let’s look at the New Jersey race. Many were pulling for the incumbent, Jon Corzine (D) to pull it out. There were reports of this race being very dirty, in the sense there was some ‘fraud’ though these reports are unconfirmed. Chris Christie (R) held a steady lead throughout the vote count and ending up winning 48% to 44% at last check. This was the real battle ground, according to both Republican and Democratic strategists. Whoever one this race would send a message to the White House on how they are doing; the message wasn’t very good to the White House since the Republican prevailed. Obama carried this state by more than 15 points during last year’s election; it was a 19 points swing back to this elected Republican Governor. Independent voter turn out played a key role in Christie winning.

The other hot race was David Hoffman (C) and Bill Owens (D). Hoffman lost, as Bill Owens took it 49% to 46%. Hoffman was a “dark horse” and many speculated that he would win but in the end Owens came out with the victory. Owens had been campaigning a lot longer and was a lot better known before Hoffman entered the race.  Another factor was that the selected Republican candidate quit on Saturday and then in a stunning move threw all her support behind the Democrat Owens instead of the Conservative Hoffman.  This was disappointing to the GOP.  

There were a few other major races, as New York re-elected their mayor Bloomberg (I), and in California a congressional seat was taken, again, by the Democrats.

The GOP still looks at the bright spots, heading into 2010. Was this a precursor of things to come in 2010? We think it is. You disagree? Post a comment.
