  • Obama reelected 332 – 206 (electoral college) 51% of the popular vote
  • Marriage equality won – Passed by referendum in Maine, Maryland, and Washington, constitutional ban in Minnesota fails
  • Congressional races of note:
    • McCaskill kicked Akin’s sexist ass 55% – 39%
    • Donnelly beat Mourdock 50% – 44%
    • Baldwin beat Thompson 51% – 46%
    • It looks like Sinema will win in AZ, but the reports of her non-theism are exaggerated. She appears to more accurately be one of the many unaffiliated.
    • Pete Stark lost to a fellow Democrat, leaving us with no open atheist in the legislature. One campaign issue was the motto.
