Republicans still seem likely to win to the House at this point in the evening, especially after defeating Rep. Rick Boucher, D-Va. — the man with the SUV. But there are already signs that the wave may not be the tsunami some have predicted. I say this because Democrats now appear likely to keep Indiana’s 2nd District (Joe Donnelly) and perhaps Kentucky’s 6th (Ben Chandler).
Neither has been called, but both of these longshot Republican victories would have suggested a much bigger night for the GOP. As things stand, it could still be a very good one.
