Democrat Defeats Santorum


— November 7, 2006

Democrats, seizing on voter unrest over the Iraq war, defeated incumbent Republicans in Ohio and Pennsylvania on Tuesday in a bid to take control of the Senate.

In Pennsylvania, Democrat Bob Casey, son of a popular former governor, defeated incumbent Sen. Rick Santorum, a conservative and third-ranking member of the Senate GOP leadership. Democratic Rep. Sherrod Brown beat GOP incumbent Mike DeWine in Ohio, a state where Republican scandals was devastating for the party.

Good riddance to Rick Santorum, who is a truly frightening right-wing nut job. He was beaten badly too — 59% to 41%. Details here from the AP via the San Francisco Chronicle.
