If you had to design tonight's results to cause painful soul-searching in both major parties, wouldn't you have had Republicans win the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey, but Democrats win New York-23?
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.
