NM went all blue. Got rid of a corrupt Republican governor and replaced a scumbag TEAParty Representative in a very red congressional district with a moderately progressive woman, who happens to be someone I worked with some years ago when she was a staffer for Senator Udall.

We also got a very progressive Public Regulation Commissioner (will fight against a coal-addicted rubber stamp electrical generation culture - I had several conversations with him about Biochar+Energy during the campaign) and a new environmentally minded Public Lands Commissioner (they are responsible for oil and mineral leases on state lands).

But nearly all republican organizations are scummy. How about continuing to suppress the vote AFTER the election?: Arizona GOP sues to limit mail-in ballots in McSally-Sinema race (CBS)

That's pathetic! Kinda like not letting those in line vote after poll closing time.

Newt's old district in Georgia went to a Democrat. Not just a Democrat, though: A Democrat women of color, advocating sensible gun control measures! Georgia's demographics are changing just like everywhere else.

Yup, it appears that Gillum has to "unconcede" and Scott's campaign actually said Nelson was trying to "steal" the election by waiting until all the votes are counted. Both races (as well as the Georgia Governor's race - CNN) are within mandatory recount margins.

I mentioned somewhere that election times are seldom happy times for me. I'm not gonna get caught up in the post election drama. It seldom changes anything.

I agree with that sentiment Gregor. The quality of the elections and cut of cloth we have to chose from have not gotten better. Mostly been coronation ceremonies from the two parties followed by a national popularity contest to decide who is the 'most likeable'.
As far as recounts go, make the bastards sweat.
I hear Gillum got out the Yutes. Is that your impression?
