Election Day 2009

It's Republicans +2 among the nation's governors (New Jersey and Virginia). It's Democrats +1 in the US House seats that were contested (they gained NY-23 and held CA-10). Gay rights lost in Maine but won in Washington state. Democrats lost several judicial races in Pennsylvania. For the first time in a long time Charlotte has a Democratic mayor. Mike Bloomberg and Tom Suozzi were almost unseated in New York. If there's a theme in all that I see anti-incumbency, but of course in most cases these were local races. If you feel like commenting on any of these contests, or others, have at it.
