In a year when Democrat candidates for Congress have been counting on the "culture of corruption" charge to resonate against Republicans; In a district where the seat was open specifically because the former incumbent is in the jug; On a day when there was effectively no primary contest for Governor on the GOP side, and a huge, bitter, intense fight on the Democratic side (thus driving up turnout among Dems, but not giving Republicans any additional reason to give up a coffee break to vote);
The Democratic candidate for Congress only got the percentage of the vote which was "right in line with past efforts."
"Busby's inability to expand her vote, and GOP voters' apparent unwillingness to vote Democratic, does raise questions about whether Democrats can win in Republican-leaning districts."
"Conservatives, including potential Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich [emphasis, mine] called the election a clear repudiation of the Senate bill."
