    State Election Results

    Hey everyone, lets try to figure out how the state governments turned out.

    According to BFA, Ohio elected a PRO gun Democrat Gov.
    Elected a PRO gun Democrat A.G.
    Elected a PRO gun House.
    Elected more pro gun people in the Senate.
    CCW reform seems like a good probability


    In Colorado
    We elected a "D" rated Democrat Gov.
    an "A-" A.G.
    House and Senate seem to be in Democrat control, by those not very friendly to gun owners.

    Anyone else want to give us their state rundown?

    SD will maintain its position as a pro-gun state.

    Iowa gun owners put forth a great effort, but ended up losing the governor spot, as well as both houses. I don't see any changes for the good coming from my neighbors to the east.

    Without getting into specifics I believe a good amount of the democrat take over was by moderates who are more pro gun than their liberal counterparts.

    The only one I know for sure is the senate race from PA where Casey (A) beat out Santorum (A+).

    I believe people predicting this doomsday scenario are overreacting a bit. While the progress for pro gun measures may have slowed in states (WI being a big loser, which really hurts) I don't believe there will be a reversal of current trends, ie limiting/banning our rights.

    There's a difference between being a dem that's pro-gun and one that will actually fight for 2A rights including CCW.

    Apologies

    I wasn't trying to get a political discussion going. Just trying to find out how the various states ended up as far as having pro-gun majorities, governors ect. regardless of political party affiliation, so I (we) can get an idea of which states may improve CCW laws, and which states will likely remain helpless, such as Illinois.

    In Tennessee, Governor Bredeson (D) was endorsed by the NRA and won, and Senator-elect Corker (R) was endorsed by the NRA and won. My representative in the U.S. House, Bart Gordon (D), was endorsed by the NRA and won. The only election in which I could vote where the NRA-endorsed candidate did not win was in my state House race, where Kent Coleman (D) (NRA F) defeated Oscar Gardner (R) (NRA A).

    In general, I believe the Second Amendment fared well in my part of Tennessee (although I certainly would like to see us wrest that state house seat from Mr. Coleman!).

    Sheldon Whitehouse, former AG of the state, was voted into the Senate. He is an anti-2nd ammendment Democrat.

    I live in Idaho. It was a GREAT day for conservative republicans here, we won it all. I moved here from California in 1994. It was a wise decision on many levels.
