Looks like he went down about 52 to 48.
Joe gave a speech, of course, but can someone explain what the hell this is supposed to mean:
"The old politics of partisan polarization won today. For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot, I will not let this result stand."
You lost to a democrat, Joe. You lost to someone in your own party because the majority of your voters are not happy with your stance on Iraq, Social Security, the bankruptcy bill, etc...
Now he says that he will run as an independent.
Does that mean that he'll lose his committee seats?
