Voters Reject Repubs, and (Gay) Marriage


Reuters reports that the initiatives to ban gay marriage in eight states are all winning, even in pivotstates where Republicans lost key seats, such as New Jersey (Kean), Minnesota (Klobuchar beat Kennedy) and Dems won big, Wisconsin (Kagen) and Colorado (Ritter and Perlmutter).

MoJo staffer Cameron Scott wrote today about the “gay panic” vote, wondering whether the war might give voters some perspective on what’s worth fighting for, or against. Looks like the sanctity of marriage is as high on the list as changing course, at least for now.
