Okay, it is bold prediction time on today's elections.
First, the GOP will lose the US House of Representatives and hold on to the United States Senate by a slim margin. The numbers just have not moved as much as they needed to in battleground districts. I hope I am wrong, but brace yourselves for Speaker Pelosi and a subpoena a day out of Congress towards the Bush Administration.
Second, to the statewide races. I believe it will be a sweep, but two races do concern me. One is the Lt. Governor's race and the other is the Comptroller General's race. It would not shock me if the Democrats pulled off one or both of those races. But, I believe they will not, and with Grady running about the worst campaign of his life, that's pretty much it for the Democrats.
Congress is easy to call. Spratt wins, Wilson wins, Barrett wins, Inglis wins, Brown wins, Clyburn wins. Easy picks.
On Wednesday I will hand out my awards for the 2006 election year in South Carolina and give some post game analysis.
Go vote. And, uh, avoid the bright lights, airplanes, and fires and whatever else seems to reach up and bite candidates this year.
