    hold on to HD-40 and hold losses down in that portion of HD-51, Multnomah came through for the rest of 51 and also HD-49, and Hillsboro of all places got us 2 new house districts that we'd lost in 2010.

    Julie Parrish will be the only really awful person we still have from 2010, it looks like.  Shawn Lindsay, Patrick Sheehan, and Matt Wand are all out.  Thank god.

      Senate remains the same?

        just my house district that hasn't been called yet, and we're behind about 700 votes here.  I don't think there are many outstanding votes.
