Election night Facebook and Twitter post wrap:
U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln: WE DID IT! WE PROVED THE PUNDITS WRONG. ARKANSANS’ VOTES CANNOT BE BOUGHT AND NEITHER CAN MINE!
Whitman2010: Honored to receive the Republican nom. A long road ahead of us, but together, we can get it done!
Carly Fiorina: AP calls it for Carly! Barbara Boxer is more vulnerable than ever. Introducing new gear - get yours now to stand with Carly!
Boxer_2010: AP has called the race for Fiorina. OK- let’s go win this thing.
Gavin Newsom (won Calif. Democratic race for lieutenant governor): I want to thank all my supporters for their hard work and dedication throughout this campaign so far. Tonight would have been impossible without you. Now, onward to November!
Joe Wilson: It’s official, as of 8:20pm, Associated Press declares me the winner in the SC Second District Primary. Thanks to family, friends and an army of volunteers who made this overwhelming win happen. Now onto a strong campaign leading up to November!
Schwarzenegger: Great news for CA - voters sent a message that they’re sick of the partisan games. Prop 14 passed!
Villaraigosa (as in Los Angeles mayor): Lakers in 6 baby!
Charlie Baker (Republican, running for governor of Mass.): The Celtics fell too far behind and had too much ground to make up in the end. What a drag. It’s too bad. We did a standout outside Boston Garden tonight and the crowd was totally fired up for the game and the opportunity to put the Lakers down 2-1 with two to play at home. Drat. (For the non-followers LA beat Boston, 91-84.)
