Republican Joan Orie Melvin has won a seat on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, giving Republicans a 4-3 majority. I'll make sure to remember this election come 2011, if the court gets involved in redistricting.
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.
