NO ONE'S EVEN TALKING ABOUT THE BIGGEST SHOCK OF THE NIGHT:

In Night of Surprises, Shumlin Suffers Stunning Rebuke (PAUL HEINTZ, ALICIA FREESE AND MARK DAVIS,  11/05/14, 7 Days)

Vermonters issued a stunning rebuke to Gov. Peter Shumlin Tuesday, leaving the two-term Democrat within inches of his political life. 

By the end of the night, Shumlin was narrowly leading Republican Scott Milne, but neither candidate came close to winning a majority of the vote. That means no matter who prevails, the race will be decided by the legislature. 

Vermont Democrats appeared likely to lose two seats in the 30-member Senate and at least eight in the 150-member House, though their majorities in both bodies were not imperiled. The most prominent Democrat to lose his seat was Rep. Mike Fisher (D-Lincoln), who chaired the House Committee on Health Care. 

The GOP blew VT in '94 too, when we could have defeated Bernie Sanders off of his gun control vote.
