  1. Wow … a Repervlican actually won something??? Did his D opponent pass away in the weeks leading up to the election?

  2. I doubt it. Pretty much no Democrat could have won that seat. I’m not even sure that Sen. Smith could have held onto it. No sense in pretending race didn’t play a part in the 2012 election – there were a lot of drop off voters that year.
