The big news so far is in Delaware. The tea party backed Christine O’Donnell beat establishment choice Rep. Mike Castle. With the victories of hardcore conservative insurgent primary challengers in Alaska and Delaware senate races expect much talk about whether moderates are no longer welcomed in the Republican party.
This is assumed to be good news for Democrat Chris Coons since O’Donnell is seen as less electable.
In MA-09 Democratic Rep. Steve Lynch defeated his primary challenger Mac D’Allesandro.
