Blumenthal beats Farr handily by close to a 3-1 margin in the race for AG. Incumbent AGs, of course, benefit from tremendous amounts of free advertising that their office can generate through media coverage of political stunts.

Christopher Shays, a moderate Republican liability reform supporter whose seat was thought threatened by the Democratic tidal wave, held onto his CT-4 seat.

Lieberman beat Lamont for the Senate by a double-digit margin, and is now the median Senator, guaranteeing that the Democrats dare not punish him for his independent run. If George Allen does hold onto Virginia or Conrad Burns onto Montana and thus the Republicans onto the Senate, the incumbent can thank Ned Lamont, who distracted Democratic activists into spending millions of dollars on a safe seat.
