Senate Update


Fox is projecting a gain of at least two seats for Republicans in the Senate, giving them a majority of at least 53, 54 if Tom Daschle loses in South Dakota. Continued Republican control of the Senate, coupled with a Bush victory (Florida now seems to be going his way), raises the prospect of four more years in which the president fails to veto a single bill and Congress gives him everything he asks for. Woo hoo.
