NBC NEWS PROJECTS DEMOCRATS WIN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE

The Republican Newt Gingrich revolution is over. The Democrats have kicked out the Republicans in the House; currently numbers have something like a 29 seat gain for the Democrats and they only needed 15 for control. 231 to 204 is the current projection for the House numbers. 12 years after the Contract of America sweep, we get the anti-Iraq, anti-Bush backlash tonight.

CNN has now made the same projection of a Democrat victory. The Democrats have picked up 3 in the Senate but do not appear likely to take over the Senate at this moment. Heard that Virginia might be going to recount.

Bad night for Republican names like Rick Santorum, defeated; Katherine Harris, defeated; and on and on.
