Bilbray defeated Busby
. (Hat Tip to Topsekret9 in the comments for that link). Story here
Also as predicted, suddenly the media are less interested
in this race. NewsBusters notes that Matt Lauer gushed over Francine Busby yesterday, but couldn't spare a few moments to give us an update today. Liberal bloggers have already worked out the spin
; this was a Republican district and nothing they could do was going to change that. Funny how the liberal bloggers only say that after the election.Chris Bowers notes
that Busby did a lot better this time around. No fooling, Sherlock! She wasn't facing an incumbent this time around. She did no better than the liberal/left presidential candidates have done in that district, as John McIntyre noted yesterday
. And this comment of Bowers' is just delusional:No matter what the media says, no Democrat should be mistaken about this result. First, this is a huge, seismic shift in our favor that bodes extremely well for November. If we receive an 18% shift nationwide, we will win the House easily. If Republican candidates are pulling only 20% of the independent vote, the Indycrat realignment is still on.
Kos, 0-21 and counting. Next loss: Ned Lamont.
