Welcome to the point. Pour Wednesday November the seventh the day after the election. I'm Chris cillizza cutting through the political spin bring you the news you need to know. All right. Let's get right to it. As you may. Or may not have heard the twenty mid-term elections were on Tuesday night. It is not Wednesday night. I have not slept. But I am able to bring you seven things. And I think we should learn lessons or take away from the twenty thousand election. Let's jump right in number one the year of the woman. So this was an election in which female candidates and female voters mattered, hugely more than a hundred women incumbents and challengers who won will be sworn in to the next congress. That's the most ever the previous record was eighty five. And if you're looking for why Democrats took over the house, you don't need to look any further than women. They made up fifty two percent of the overall. Electric and they voted for democratic candidates over Republican candidates by nineteen points. Take number two a Trump referendum. So Donald Trump's are went back and forth over the last week of the campaign over whether or not this election was a referendum on him. And I think actually for both good and bad for Donald Trump. Eat was the bad in the house. He was very unpopular in suburban districts with women as I just detailed and that hurt a lot of incumbents trying to get reelected in the suburbs of Miami. And Kansas City and Minneapolis Saint Paul and Philadelphia that was a problem and Donald Trump was that problem. But on the other hand, this was a referendum on Trump at a positive way. When it came to a lot of those Senate races were Democrats were in states that Donald Trump at one by double digits Trump made three stops in the final day of the twenty eighteen campaign on Monday. He went to Florida where Rick Scott appears to be. Be the winner over Bill Nelson. Although that race isn't called yet. And it's likely headed to a recount, but Rick Scott's ahead. He went to Indiana where Joe Donnelly lost to the Republican candidate, Mike Braun, and he went to Missouri where incumbent Senator Claire mccaskill was defeated by Republican attorney general and Senator elect Josh Holly. Donald Trump also helped the North Dakota where Kevin Kramer beat Heidi Heitkamp in Republican areas. Donald Trump helped number three takeaway Mitch McConnell is still the smartest guy in politics. Look say what you want about Mitch McConnell over the summer. There was a lot of panic when Tennessee and Texas looked like states that Democrats might just be able to steal didn't happen, Marsha Blackburn. One in Tennessee. Ted Cruz beat Beto Iraq in Texas and McConnell, never panicked. And as a result. He's going to have a larger Senate majority in the next congress, which means more wiggle room, less dependency on placating moderates, like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, and probably even better working. Relationship with this White House. Takeaway, number four Sherrod Brown. Is someone democrat should listen to more? So Donald Trump wins Ohio by nine points in two thousand sixteen Sherrod Brown. Democratic Senator has his race called almost as soon as the polls close on Tuesday night. How did he do it? Well, he did it by running a mid western populist, and I wanna read something he said because this very interesting when it comes to maybe shared Brown in the future, quote, let our country our nation citizens are Democratic Party. My fellow elected officials all over the country. Let them all cast their eyes toward the heartland to the industrial midwest to our Great Lakes, and we will show America, how we celebrate organized labor and all workers the waitress and date in the office worker until Lido the nursing Columbus, the mine worker and can shocked in that is the message coming out of Ohio in two thousand eighteen and that is the blueprint for our nation twenty twenty and quote eyebrows, raised I think shared bound be an interesting darkhorse in two thousand twenty take number five the twenty twenty race started tonight. Okay. So I've already mentioned Brown but Kirsten gillibrand of New York and. Amy klobuchar in Minnesota, both won election convincingly. No one expected that they wouldn't same with Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. But it shows they will use these races these Witcher's springboards, financial and political and from a policy perspective. I think to run I think you're gonna see a huge field. It's an include a number of people who got reelected to the Senate in two thousand eighteen number six takeaway, all of Democrats big national rising stars got wiped out. So look quickly name the three biggest challenger names on the democratic side in the twenty thousand election, you almost certainly named in some order Beddoe Aurore can us Andrew Gilman, Florida and Stacey Abramson Georgia. Well, Iraq, lost Gillam lost and Abrahams is very likely to have lost though. She's not conceding it because it's possible that Brian Kemp the Republican nominee his vote share could could maybe drop below fifty percent. And then there would be a runoff in less than a month's time. But remember the politics aboard a vacuum. There will be. National rising stars for Democrats coming out of this election. I would suggest Gretchen Whitmer who just got elected governor in Michigan Jared policy new governor of Colorado, the first openly gay man to be elected governor and the new governor of New Mexico. Michelle Luhan Grisham all think all those people people keep an eye on and my last number seven takeaway Republicans won the biggest governor's races in the country. There were two governor's races. I think that matter more than any others, Florida and Ohio Republicans won both. And I'll tell you. I think they matter more both are huge swing states in twenty twenty. And you always want to have a governor's political operation, helping your nominee. Donald Trump will now have that the other thing both of those states will be at the center of redistricting. The once a decade redrawing of the nation's congressional lines having the governor in that seat. In your party means your party will likely fare better in that redistricting process, and that could make a big difference in just those two states in the battle for control of the house in.
