Mixed Night for Women Candidates

We were noticing on the women's blog the number of female candidates running for election this year, but many of them received mixed results.

Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid defeated Republican candidate Sharron Angle (Nev.).

Democrat Barbara Boxer defeated Republican candidate Carly Fiorina (Calif. Senate).

Republican Michele Bachmann defeated Democrat Tarryl Clark (Minn. House) (and will run for Republican leadership in the House).

Democratic candidate Jerry Brown defeated Republican Meg Whitman (Calif. governor).

Republican Nikki Haley defeated Sen. Vincent Sheheen (S.C. governor).

Democrat Christopher Coons defeated Christine O'Donnell (Del. Senate).

Weigh in with any others.
