George writes this morning:

After reviewing the vote totals there is still plenty for Republicans to take solice in.  This was not the wave year that MSM claimed it would be. 

Republicans won most close races despite a terrible national environment, a true testament to their GOTV efforts.

Many races the GOP should have lost last night were won or lost narrowly. Last night would have been much uglier, but for the strong voter turn out effort.
