Tuesday's Election Results

by Dee Newman

The lesson from Tuesday's elections is obvious: Democrats cannot be elected or re-elected unless Democrats turn out at the polls and vote for them.

If Democrats in the House and Senate do not start delivering on their campaign promises, the turn out will continue to be minuscule.

Though we should not discount the Republican wins in Virginia and New Jersey, the New York and California House races were the only contests that centered on Congressional issues and both were won by Democrats despite months and months of Republican attacks on President Obama’s legislative priorities.
