It was NOT a good election day for the far right as they really took it on the chin.
After Jennifer Schilling stepped down (after winning a Republican recall) Jill Billings CRUSH the Republican candidate in Wisconsin for the Assembly. VICTORY
In Maine a Koch Bro Republicans wanted to repeal the right for same day registration for the right to vote with same day registration. Oddly the Republicans handed out fliers saying a vote against the Republicans was a vote FOR "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender" groups. (I actually saw one of those fliers).
The voters voted 60% to keep same day voting! VICTORY
In Kentucky the Democrats won Governor and Attorney General VICTORY
OHIO - WELL DONE!! John Kaich (the Walker of Ohio) and his SB 5 which stripped collective bargaining rights from workers was CRUSHED!!!!! VICTORY
Mississippi - fetal conception personhood amendment went down surprisingly hard in Mississippi. The Republicans finally found an anti-abortion tactic so extreme it was crushed in a state wide referenda in a deeply dark Red Confederate state like Mississippi. his Amendment might potentially have resulted in a criminal investigation every time a woman miscarried a fertilized egg.
it was defeated 42% YES 58%
Mitt Romney endorsed the Voter ID Law in Maine, SB 5 in Ohio, and the odious fetal personhood Constitutional Amendment in Mississippi and all three were crushed by the voters.
The Republicans/TeaBaggers/Conservatives/Koch Brothers were routed lastnight in the North-East, the Mid-West, the Deep South and the West.
OK - back in reality a couple more shots from Monday - this first one is of the United States Sugar Company in Madison. My shots are actually pretty colorful but I had to get this one out of the way.
And here is another shot of Olbrich Gardens.
