John McCain took just 26.5 percent of the vote in Hawaii and the party managed to lose a couple more seats in the legislature. They're now down to just eight seats in the 76-member legislature.
This seemed to be part of a pattern across the country. There are certain states where Democrats don't have many more seats to gain, such as Massachusetts and Minnesota, but where they picked up a couple nonetheless.
So their overall totals on election night were not awe-inspiring -- they picked up five chambers, compared to four for the GOP -- but they certainly managed to build on a solid foundation.
