Two Governing "Public Officials of the Year" have been declared winners so far tonight -- current honoree Mitch Daniels, the Republican just reelected governor of Indiana, and Mark Warner, honored in 2004 as the Democratic governor of Virginia, who has taken the U.S. Senate seat against his predecessor, Jim Gilmore.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
