Beltway Happenings 
Nov. 2, 2010-Newt Gingrich's American Solutions hosted an election night watch at the Ronald Reagan Building.
Rich Galen served as MC for the evening.  In addition to remarks by Newt and Callista Gingrich, former Gov. Mitt Romney and former Gov. Mike Huckabee called in and others stopped by during the evening.
Former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) mingled for a bit.  He is CEO of the American Action Network, a 501(c)(4).
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), chairman of the NRSC, offered his observations.  (Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the NRCC, stopped in latter in the evening).
Galen, Joe Gaylord and former Rep. Bob Walker discussed the results.  As CEO of American Solutions, Gaylord authored the campaign manual Campaign Solutions: How challenger candidates maximize Money, Media, Message and Management.  He has been described as "strategist for the 1994 Republican takeover" and from 1982-89 served as executive director of the NRCC.
And of course FOX News provided the election coverage.
