Democrats take back the Senate in Virginia and, thankfully, Jeanmarie Devolites Davis LOST tonight

Watching local TV. A few minutes ago Governor Tim Kaine announced that the Democrats have taken back the State Senate. Democrats needed four seats to win back control and based on various reports, it looks like they did it. Still a couple races left to be called.

For me, the exciting news is that State Senator Jeanmarie Devolites Davis lost. I’ll admit taking great glee in that outcome. Last week, we reported on the political thuggery of Davis. She’s the wife of Congressman Tom Davis (R-VA). They’re quite a pair — A repulsive pair of political thugs. He spent hundreds of thousands from his campaign account on her race. And, today, she lost.

Raising Kaine (which is really one of the blogs that sets the standard for state-based political blogs) has had outstanding coverage throughout the elections.

The Washington Post is reporting the Dems. have picked up the four seats needed, too:

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
