Dems Win House

CNN has projected a Democratic takeover of the House. This has looked increasingly likely for some weeks now. But this will be the evening's story now, barring an Allen loss in the Senate, which could also switch that chamber of Congress.

The evangelical story here will be whether some of the new moderates/conservatives can leverage their victories into influence with Democratic Party leadership. The moderate/liberal Republicans who lost tonight will testify to how difficult that can be.
