Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: What's at Stake in the Massachusetts Senate Race (Final)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Some things make the markets go higher, some things make the markets go lower," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Monday.

In the case of today's special election in Massachusetts, Cramer said if the Republicans win, the markets are headed decidedly higher.

Cramer called today's rally "the rally from tomorrow," as he and many expect a Republican upset in the Massachusetts Senate race. What does a Republican win mean for the markets? Plenty, he said.

Cramer explained that a Republican win in Massachusetts means the Democratic majority in the Senate would be broken, stopping cold many of President Obama's anti-business agenda items such as health care reform, cap and trade, and union reforms. "A Republican win takes Washington out of the stock market equation," he said.

With Washington surely headed towards gridlock, Cramer said a rally would continue in not only the health care stocks, but also in the natural gas stocks, bank stocks and any company with a large union.

"We're not a political show," Cramer told viewers, "but wouldn't it be nice to stop worrying about Washington?"
