The Ameriqueer 10 LGBT races to watch list is going back to the shop for a few days.

Campaigns are a very tricky thing. They are very fluid, dynamic systems, and many things change quickly. At the same time, they are ruled by a HUGE set of rules--both written and unwritten--that put a lot of pressure on them to tread lightly.

For the last month I've been compiling this list, and trying to work on it at least every other day. I have come to realize that I'd never want to be a party chair for a county, state or for the country.

That is all.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
