First D win of the night, in deep-red Kentucky, for Andy Beshear. That was quick!

Yay Beshear. Impressive #s so far. He only won by 1 point the last time. I thought the polls were 47/47?!?!

I remind my soon to be 18 year old grandson how important his vote and those of his peers is to the survival of our country. Every vote needs to be counted.

We are in this together.

I was at the poll here in MN by 8:30am. The only thing on the ballot today in this area was school board elections. After just an hour and a half, more than 300 people had inserted their ballots into the machine ahead of me! That is a big number for such a short time at this particular polling place.

This is a sleepy suburban district that was awakened two years ago by the threat of “parental rights” groups seeking to ban books, review curriculum, stop trans children from being able to participate in sports ( even gym classes) eliminate LGTBQ support programs, etc. Those threats helped us turn out most eligible voters. What I witnessed this morning made me hopeful that local voters have long memories. Fingers crossed!

Thank you Simon and all here for all you’ve done to Get Out The Vote! I was able to send postcards and $$. Hoping for good results in Virginia!!!

Dave Wasserman just called it on Twitter/X “I've seen enough: Democrats retain control of the Virginia Senate, blocking a trifecta for Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R).”

I might have to move off Long Island if the Republican wins Suffolk County Executive...it’s a close race but frickin George Santos won out here last year !!! Need redistricting or it’s hopeless ...

Dave Wasserman on VA House of Delegates. “VA House of Delegates: by my count, Dems have now won 50 seats, meaning Republicans have lost sole control. There are still 4-6 tight races that could put Dems over the top for outright control.”

Wow. Just Wow.

PA Supreme Court race also looking good!

And the House of Delegates flips to Dem control according to Wasserman!!!!

I've seen enough: Democrats win control of the Virginia House of Delegates, flipping the GOP majority and giving them control of both chambers.

PA Dem wins the S, Ct seat too!

What a night!
