    Perhaps it's just me, but I found Illinois to be even more suprising to go Republican. With Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio in Rep hands, makes for an interesting times looking ahead.

    Looks like the Republicans could have as many as 34 governorships after this. Plus they'll probably take Kentucky next year. Kind of incredible considering most had them losing seats.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    It worked in this state, to an extent, CP. The prime measure for defense of life at all stages of life was resoundingly defeated--not just on the basis of women's rights, but also how it interacted with all matters of healthcare.

    Republicans mostly continue to have their hold in the state, but some of the biggest proponents of the measure were ousted.

    For the first time in my voting life I feel very happy (so far) about election results. There is just 1 pro-life Amendment in my state I'm following closely and although it's a tight race it looks like that will win too.

    Meanwhile, last I checked, Minimum Wage initiative has been doing pretty well and that is decidedly a liberal issue...
