Election 2012: The Massachusetts Scoreboard



US Senate: D: 2  R: 0

US House: D: 9  R: 0

Constitutional offices: D: 6  R: 0

State senate: D: 36  R: 4 (10%)

State house: D: 131  R: 29 (18%)

This, folks, is the most abject, awful, humiliating moment for the Massachusetts Republican Party in my time covering them -- which has been a long string of lows and even greater lows.

Democrats in the state have tried everything they could do to help -- scandal, recession, in-fighting, getting hauled off to prison. This time around they opened one competitive congressional seat; carved the first-term incumbent's home base out of another; and sent the wife of a third to jail. 

Republicans couldn't win any of them.

So, way to go chairman Bob Maginn and the whole crew. Every time I think the party has reached the final, absolute low point you prove me wrong. And you have done it once again.
