I just want to point out to all the panty-wetters out there that divided government is the norm, not the exception. If Lamb did indeed win last night, that is still a good sign.
When Obama was elected the Democrats took a hard left and passed Obamacare. The GOP took a hard right (over the shrill objections of the GOPe) and regained the House, Senate and White House. Lamb is a moderate. Once upon a time he would have been called a Blue Dog.
The Overton window has shifted to the right. The Democrats who are winning these special elections are running as moderates. Last but not least, the last two POTUSes that lost all or part of Congress in their first midterm were both reelected.
So deal with it.
