Republican Have a Spilt Decision New Jersey and Virginia and Loses Upstate New York

Democrats gain a foothold in US House Representative as conservative candidate Douglas Hoffman loses to Bill Owens.  Until Saturday it was a three person race. The Republican Dede Scozzafava who bow out and gave her support to Bill Owens  took needed votes for Hoffman. Owen won 49% to 45%. Scozzafava  grabbed 6% of the vote even though she got out of the race.

But the bombshell is the landslide in Virginia Robert Mc Donnell defeated Democrat Creigh Deeds by 58%-33%. Deed lost Republicans and Independent voters Tuesday.

In New Jersey, in a very close election Republican Chris Christie former US Attorney in New Jersey beat incumbent Governor Jon Corzine by 5% points49%-45%. The margin would have been bigger however because of Independent candidate Chris Daggett garnered 5% of the vote.

President Obama spent a significant time, money and resources in the Garden State and Old Dominion. It didn’t help.
