CONGRATULATIONS TO DEMS!
We're celebrating midterm election results that are full of firsts!
STOP, LOOK, LISTEN! by Kathy Sherretts
Congratulations to Dems!
We’ll go back to our regularly scheduled Resistance next week—but right now let’s congratulate voters and candidates on their election victories! 25 new Democratic women will serve in Congress next term, a record high. In addition to important ballot questions and big state-level wins, Democrats won the majority in the US House with room to spare, and limited their losses in the Senate (where they faced a brutal midterm map). These victories will give the party real muscle in Washington for the first time since 2016.
While some votes are still being counted, and some results still up in the air, here are a few outcomes to ponder:
Maine road-tests its new ranked-choice voting.
Vermont elects a cellist.
Pennsylvania decides between two incumbents.
Nevada elects a member of the dead community.
All over the US, voters vote for voting.
