Election Results:

The Democrats gained control of the House yesterday and picked up a net of 34 seats. The Republicans retained control of the Senate with a net gain of 3 seats. We will be enjoying a new Speaker of the House in January, and the redoubt took another blow with the gun laws passed in WA under i-1639. Congress under split leadership should get little done in the way of actual governance, but look for much political drama in the coming years.
