Dems lose TX-23. Sink will likely lose FL-Gov -- it's still a 1% race with 99% in. The Dem collapse in the state killed what was a winnable race against yet another crazy GOPer.

Update 1: Dems hold their endangered House members in MN, and things are looking promising in the governor's race.

Update 2: I missed Dems losing IA-Gov. That one was never in doubt.

Update 3: Dems lose 15 state legislative chambers.

Update 4: CO-03 goes GOP, another Blue Dog bites it. That's 24 of their 48 members gone. They really don't get to tell Democrats how to win anymore.

Update 5: NY Times:

The question is: Will either side draw the right lessons from this midterm election?

Mr. Obama, and his party, have to do a far better job of explaining their vision and their policies. Mr. Obama needs to break his habits of neglecting his base voters and of sitting on the sidelines and allowing others to shape the debate. He needs to do a much better job of stiffening the spines of his own party’s leaders.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
