My voting jurisdiction didn't have an election yesterday, but around the country, it was a mixed day:
On the upside:
Virginia and New Jersey have new Republican governors. Best of luck, gentlemen; you're going to need it.
Maine voters overturned the legislature's gay marriage law. Gay marriage is now 0 for 31, every state to which it has been put to a popular vote.
On the downside:
Hoffman loses in NY-23. On a positive note, he did better than insurgent candidates usually do.
Ohio votes for gambling, regulation, and reckless spending. How did such a fine state come to this? The campaign for casino gambling made the claim that Ohio gamblers were losing their money out-of-state. Now they can lose their money to casino companies headquartered in (I assume) New York.
