2022 Midterms: What Happened in the Senate?

Lauren BoebertUnexpectedly tough re-election race Colorado emerged as one of the biggest surprises of 2022 midterms.

As of Wednesday morning, the extreme Republican trailed Democratic challenger Adam Frisch for the state’s 3rd Congressional District House seat by just under 2 percent with 93 percent of the district’s votes counted.

The race is still too close to call – though The New York Times estimates that Ms. Boebert will claw her way back to victory, based on the precincts in the district that still have ballots to report.

The close race comes as a surprise to both Republicans and Democrats — as well as pollsters — after the controversial gun-toting congresswoman was expected to enjoy a comfortable re-election.

Meanwhile, in the Senate race, Democrat Michael Bennet topped Republican Joe O’Dea with 54.9 percent of the vote.

The governorship also turned blue, with Democrat Jared Polis defeating Republican Heidi Ganahl.

The Democrat apocalypse has been called off – thanks largely to Donald Trump

The Democrats avoided bloodshed on the blood moon largely thanks to one man, The Independent’s writes Washington Senior Correspondent Eric Garcia.

“Trump set Republicans up for failure when he and then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scuttled the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett just before the 2020 presidential election.

“That prompted the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade by its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson. Had it not happened, Democrats would be looking at a disastrous midterm on the scale of their historic defeat in 2010. Instead, the decision galvanized their base in a way that almost no issue ever could.”

‘People want the circus to stop’

Few were picking Lauren Boebert’s congressional race to go down to the wire.

“She is the incumbent; she represents the Republican plus nine district; she outperformed Adam Frisch, so she has more money to spend on her campaign,” said Justin Gollob, professor of political science. The Independent’s Sheila Flynn.

“Her name recognition is greater than Adam Frisch’s name. Probably one of his biggest commitments at this point is the recognition of his lower name.

“All these signs point to a fairly convincing victory. So what’s really surprising, at this point, is that we’re even having a conversation about the competitiveness of this race.”

Read Sheila’s fascinating account of how Ms. Boebert’s “anger” alienated voters.

US midterms: Who won, who lost, and what we know so far

As the results of the US midterm elections began to trickle in on Tuesday night, it quickly became clear that the contest was much closer than expected, and that the outcome was more surprising and unpredictable than many had predicted.

Republicans appear close to securing a majority in the House at the time of this writing, and could sneak a lead in the Senate as well, allowing them to play havoc with Joe Biden’s legislative agenda.

But the “red tsunami” that many boisterous conservative commentators confidently predicted would level Washington DC most certainly did not materialize.

Find out who won, who lost and what we know so far:
