Perhaps not the biggest races in last night’s elections but some of the more interesting storylines….
In Virginia: The first openly transgender state lawmaker was elected to the Statehouse. She unseated a 13-term incumbent who called himself “Virginia’s chief homophobe.” Great read here from The Washington Post
In New Jersey: A New Jersey politician who made a snide remark about the Women’s March in Washington lost to a woman who was offended by it. US News has the story.
In Maine: Voters approved a measure expanding Medicaid after the governor vetoed it. Read the NPR story here.
