On Tuesday, as Arlen Specter left the Republican Party, the G.O.P. was gaining in the states. In a special election, Republicans won a seat previously held by Democrats in the South Carolina House of Representatives. In another special, they maintained control of a seat in the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

A South Carolina House seat isn't a fair trade for a U.S. senator, but right now I'm sure the G.O.P. will take whatever good news it can get.
