As a Democratic majority retakes the House, among the gains that made it possible are Republican congressional losses in Colorado and Arizona. In Arizona, Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano crushed her Republican opponent; in Colorado, Democrat Bill Ritter cruised to victory in the gubernatorial election and Democrats solidified their hold on the Colorado legislature. The Democratic victories seem to me symptomatic of a shrinking of the geographic Republican base.
In yesterday’s press conference, President Bush looked to his unpopular immigration reform proposals as “an issue where I believe we can find some common ground with the Democrats.” Working together, the president and a Democratic Congress might be able to finish off the Republican Party.
