2010 Election night reactions

We are getting reactions from candidates and elected officials to the victories and losses of their preferred candidates. We'll be updating this post as we get them:

Senate candidate Joe Miller (R) of Alaska on Rand Paul's victory in Kentucky:

"It's very clear that nationwide we have a movement, that is moving us forward in a way that I think is going to bring real change to DC. And the American people are demanding it. It is a mandate to make sure the federal government gets reversed in its growth. Not just slowed down, but completely changed out in a way that we have increased power to the state."

Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) on Rand Paul's victory in Kentucky

"I want to congratulate Rand Paul on winning a race that the leaders in his own party said he could not win. Rand overcame difficult odds because he consistently stood up for conservative principles. Voters in Kentucky have done something truly historic today. They've said 'no' to parochial, pork-barrel politics and sent an outstanding leader to the Senate. When Rand Paul takes the oath of office to support and defend the Constitution, he will mean it. I was honored to be an early supporter of his campaign and I look forward to working with him in the Senate."
