No on weed, Yes on Reid.

California will not legalize marijuana.

Nevada will send Democratic Majority Leader Reid back to the Senate (but will he still LEAD the Dems there?). Reid, who has been outstandingly mealymouthed and milquetoast on LGBT issues, at least gets to hold the gavel for a few more weeks. However, as the tides change, there will be some strong challenges to his leadership.

Too bad Russ Feingold can't run for Majority Leader. THAT strong LGBT ally who took a moral stand against DOMA in 1996 and has always been a strong ally to the community, is now out of the job.

If its someone like Durbin that replaces Reid, I swear I'm going to waterboard MYSELF. Vom.

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?
