Increases in the minimum wage are projected to pass in Ohio and Missouri. The same goes for bans on same-sex marriage in Tennessee and South Carolina (the two states where no one expected the vote to be close).
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
