It's official, No. 1: House Democrats have now elected Nancy Pelosi as their speaker-elect, the hyphenated part to be removed when the new Congress convenes and votes again in January.
It's official, No. 2: The secretary of state's office in Georgia has declared Democratic Rep. John Barrow the winner in a race for reelection against Republican challenger Max Burns. As TPM Muckraker does the math, Barrow's win -- which is still subject to a possible call for a recount -- means that Republicans didn't take any governorships or House or Senate seats from Democrats last week. While several House races remain undecided, the seats at risk in those races didn't belong to Democrats in the first place.
