At this point, I'd say if Barker holds on, Dems hold the Virginia Senate. All the other races are looking to be going their way. One will go to a recount, but as long as the Dem enters the recount with a lead, he'll hold on.

Why is it so close? Are people getting name confused?

Well, there goes a huge loss for the right to actually live. But what can you do?
Do you not see the irony of your statement?  Victims of ectopic pregnancy retain their right to live thanks to Mississippi's vote today.

You do realize this wasn't an abortion ban, right?  It was FAR beyond that.

I have no idea; I could tell the Dems were panicking because they poured a quarter million dollars into the race over the past week.

Looks like no change in the New Jersey Senate. Democrats are currently up 1 in the State Assembly, but District 1 is still in the air and they look likely to lose a seat there.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

CNN said there is no exact trend for tonight, but I think this is looking to be a very positive night for progressives.

Fair enough, but had Republicans put a simple abortion ban on the ballot, with exceptions for rape/incest/life of mother, it would have passed handily.

Yeah, I REALLY wish they did that now. But then again, that wouldn't have gotten to the Supreme Court, so it would've been pointless anyway.

Let's see:

* MS Gov: Republican easily elected, Republican measure fails - it's a wash
* KY Gov: Democrat easily re-elected
* NJ: Democrats hold House & Senate (?)
* VA: Democrats could hold House & Senate (?)
* ME: Republican measure strongly fails
* OH: Unions win, Health Care loses -  it's a wash
* IA: Democrat on track to win, State Senate likely remains Democratic

I'm late to the party, but Init 26 would have also made IVF virtually impossible in Mississippi; the same procedure that allowed 'Yes on 26' campaign director Brad Prewitt to become a father.

“It just seems so unfair that you got your two children and now you’re taking the rights (away) for others,” said Cristen Hemmins yesterday.

“Nothing’s fair,” Prewitt replied, according to a recording, and walked away.

With half of the precincts in, Democrat Liz Mathis leads by 62-37 in Iowa-18.

PPP said Mathis by 52-46.

Let's see:

* VA: Democrats could hold House & Senate (?)

The GOP currently controls the House 61:39 (the two independents caucus regularly with the House GOP), and unless you have information that I don't, we are not taking the House this year.

They just pulled up the MS gubernatorial race and said "Durrhurr you guys didn't win this, you know."

DeSoto (!), Rankin (!!!!), Madison, Hancock, and Harrison all voted No.  That's stunning (in a good way)

I wonder what would have happened if DuPree had opposed 26.  Especially if he'd made it the focal point of his campaign.

But the health thing (like the MS abortion law for that matter) is in fact symbolic since it is obviously overridden by federal law, whereas the union law is substantive, and is the most important ballot question of the night in the country.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

The Ohio labor rights question map, by the way, will be very interesting when all the results come in. It seems to diverge from the typical areas of D strength in almost the opposite way from Obama; it's just getting killed in the small southeastern Appalachian counties, in a number of cases by higher margins than in Cuyahoga, Lucas or Franklin.
