$6 billion spent, nothing changes.  Republicans retain US House, Democrats retain Senate and White House.   Billionaires wonder why they wasted their money.

NH makes US history: NH Governor, 2 Senators, 2 US Reps all women

Maggie Hassen becomes sole female Democratic governor in US

US Senate Composition: 53 Democrats, 45 Republicans, 2 Ind. to caucus with Dems

Bad night for “rape”-ublicans: Todd “legitimate rape” Akin, Richard “God’s will”  Mourdock and Paul “method of conception” Ryan all lose.

Tea Party losers: Frank Guinta, Joe Walsh, Allen West, Dan Lungren.
  Michele Bachmann ekes out a win.  Steve King wins.  Guess Dems can’t win ’em all.

Tammy Baldwin becomes the first openly gay US Senator ever elected

Nashua elects first openly transgendered lawmaker in the US  (Union Leader)

Marijuana legalization and marriage equality initiatives win across country


This looks like a pretty clean sweep for our side.  

Thanks to all the voters who made the effort to vote despite the obstacles, and to all the volunteers and staff who worked so hard to make this night possible.    Congratulations to all the candidates who’ve won.

We’re going to let this be the home page for a while until we go back to business as usual.
