The GOP is now 3-0 in elections since November 4th.

With 100% of precincts reporting Joseph Cao defeated William Jefferson 50-47 in LA-2 to become the first Vietnamese-American elected to the U.S. Congress. This victory is especially amazing as it was in a majority Democrat district.

While not quite as big a victory as could have been hoped for, Fleming defeated Carmouche by 356 votes in LA-4. Fleming declared himself the victor around 11:00 PM, and he should be feeling real comfortable as he has a larger lead than Norm Coleman does in MN. While we should have had a much bigger victory in that district, it was still a win and we will take every one we can take for now.

Next up any competitive special elections that may arise as a result of Obama's cabinet and White House picks, and then the Virginia executive races in 2009.
