The politicians did, win or lose
Election losers like Stacy Abrams now has 6 million in the bank just for complaining a lot. Winners now can vote themselves more money and have to do what the Uni-Party tells them to do.
I give one bright hope to DeSantis who seems like someone who could actually lead something. He pulled Florida’s ass out of the storm better than any recent leader (heckuva job there on Katrina dubya). He gave a good victory speech that wasn’t sanctimonious.
Most disappointing were the people of Pennsylvania who cut of their nose to spite their faces by electing Fetterman. This is Biden 2.0 of being functionally impaired. That could be the new strategy though, put in a puppet you can control by pulling the strings.
So the losers were the people unless a split government gets nothing done. They’ve inflicted enough damage on us in the last 2 years. Them fighting cuts down on bills that just costs the people and the economy, and the welfare of our children.
The people that put the Covid restrictions on their sheep got re-elected so they aren’t smart in Michigan or NY either. They re-elected people who proved they couldn’t lead during a crisis (see DeSantis and Covid/Hurricane Ian)
It was a mixed bag of results that no one won except the politicians, even the ones that lost their races.
