CNN says the South Dakota abortion ban has failed. This is the second time in three years an abortion ban has failed in South Dakota (and, despite modifying the language, the margin looks similar to what it was in 2006).
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.
