GOP Ladies Night

Oh What a night. The big winners on this Super Tuesday of midterms: Meg Whitman GOP nomination Governor CA, Carly Fiorina GOP nomination CA Senate, Nikki Haley GOP nomination Governor South Carolina, Sharron Angle GOP nomination Nevada Senate and Blanche Lincoln who held on to the nomination for her Senate seat against a challenge on the left from Bill Halter. Blanche might as well enjoy the victory now because she will surely be defeated in November. Her challenger John Boozman leads her by a whopping 25 points as she heads off to defend her vote for ObamaCare in a state where 72% support repeal of the bill. Bye Bye Blanche.

Other notable winners included Senator Jim DeMint who faces a cake-walk to re-election in South Carolina and locally former Eagles tackle Jon Runyan won the GOP nomination to challenge John Adler for New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District seat.  Runyan had no trouble tackling the question of whether he lacked sufficient experience to handle the job:
"People question me all the time about my experience," said Runyan. "They question my experience in politics, and the first thing I always tell them is yes, I have no experience raising taxes over and over. I have no experience increasing the debt in a state."
Runyan seems to have developed a flair for this business. He sounded positively Reaganesque in that response.  Though there were many more winners in the primaries held in 12 states, the closely-watched races were dominated by a field of talented Republican women.   I am sure Senator DeMint and Mr. Runyan won't mind a little Kool and the Gang in celebration of "Ladies Night:"
