This space is taking a pass on U.S. House races tonight, but I wanted to note that Connecticut Republican Chris Shays -- incidentally the lead House sponsor of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law -- has conceded.
Shays was the last Republican to represent New England in the House. Not all my predictions are coming true tonight, but I expect that Republicans may be left without a legislative chamber in the greater Northeast after tonight.
So much for the old Eastern Establishment base of the party.
