    As southerners came to dominate the Republican party, the R claim to be the party of "small government" becomes more questionable. A lot of conservative westerners lean libertarian, and aren't thrilled with heavy-handed government rules regarding abortion, anti-gay legislation, marijuana, etc., not to mention the party's racist overtones.
    That may be a factor in Dem successes in Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, Montana as well.
