Kathy Hochul (D) has won the special election in NY-26, a blood-red Republican district, beating Jane Corwin (R), who declared her affectionate support for Ryan's kill-Medicare plan. She won by a pretty significant margin, too. With 87% of the precincts reporting, Corwin languished with 42% of the vote while Hochul was close to breaking 50%, at 48%.
This was a referendum on Paul Ryan's kill-Medicare and Path to Poverty plan, ad the Republican Tea Party lost. But the good news for Democrats is that the wingnuts have a tendency to double down when they lose. Now, they will definitely run Michelle Bachmann for President!
