Former U.S. Attorneys from the Republican party sailed to victory Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Wyoming and Arkansas in an election that appeared to be a resounding referendum on the Obama administration.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett, a former U.S. Attorney under George H.W. Bush, won the governorship in Pennsylvania, the website Main Justice and local newspapers reported. He defeated Democrat, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato.

Also in Pennsylvania, former Harrisburg U.S. Attorney Tom Marino, who served under President George W. Bush, won a Congressional seat, defeating Democratic Rep. Chris Carney.

And Patrick Meehan, a former U.S. Attorney under George W. Bush, captured the 7th Congressional seat in Pennsylvania, defeating Democrat Bryan Lentz.

In Arkansas, former interim U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin, who headed up the Little Rock office for a brief span from December 2006 to January 2007, defeated Democratic state Sen. Joyce Elliott for a Congressional seat.
