It is appreciated that the Dems regained control of the House with some picks in red areas and had some good ballot measures (including multiple states expanding Medicaid) but the trolls winning in the Senate and statehouses (not all confirmed) depresses and angers me. It is not just that many of the Democrats were good candidates but that some of the Republicans were horrible. Well, a few of them, including Kobach did lose. Still, it's tough. We have a long way to go as a country. Full Democratic control of the NY Legislature now. Update: It's a week after and the election isn't over in various ways, including the Florida Senate race and two key state governor races that influenced my negativity. It is a relief that Sinema seems to have won Arizona after being behind by a percentage the morning after. The Senate cycle was very tough and the Dems (pending Florida) will be either -1 or -2, which tbh is realistically a win especially since Doug Jones was a steal. Tough losses though.
