Republicans Take the Senate: 50 Best Tweets from Election Night 2014

What an amazing ride Election Night 2014 was. Watching the Republicans take the majority in the Senate race by race proved to be an thrilling experience. And seeing the results of the Governors’ races pour in bit by bit was equally exhilarating.

Some of the gubernatorial wins for the GOP were remarkable as well: Greg Abbott trounced Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis in Texas, Rick Scott defended against Charlie Crist in Florida, Scott Walker quashed Mary Burke in Wisconsin, Bruce Rauner booted Pat Quinn in Illinois, Larry Hogan conquered Anthony Brown in Maryland, and Charlie Baker overcame Martha Coakley in Massachusetts.

At the state level, the story is even more incredible, with the Republicans completely sweeping the state legislatures and now controlling a two-thirds majority of state houses and state assemblies across the nation.

Sadly, this red wave rolling in on Election Night proved to be too much to bear for liberals, especially for those in the mainstream media. The good news, of course, was that the butthurt on the left ended up being a tremendous source of humor and inspiration for those on the right.

Below are the top 50 tweets from Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, and patriots alike who took to Twitter to express their sheer joy at the GOP landslide victory on Tuesday night, and who had a little fun at the expense of those on the left:
