Ayotte Wins in New Hampshire

It's been called:  Kelly Ayotte has won the Republican nomination for Senate in New Hampshire.  According to Politico, she defeated rival Ovide Lamontagne by just over 1,600 votes.  The Palin-backed "mama grizzly" squeaked out a victory with just over 38% of the vote to Lamontagne.  However, it is being reported that a recount may be in the works.

This is good news for the Republican "establishment" after yesterday's defeat of establishment-backed Mike Castle in Delaware.  This is also good news for Republicans in general, because the nation's most accurate polling service, Rasmussen, has Ayotte defeating Democratic challenger Paul Hodes by 13%.
