Terror in IOWA: Governor Culver falls, 3 justices lose retention votes

According to the Des Moines Register, not only was pro-equality Governor Chet Culver ousted, but the Republicans will take control of the Iowa House, and the three pro-equality Justices on the ballot who all chose not to campaign were rejected for retention, opening them all up for replacement by re-elected anti-equality Governor Branstad. Democrats will maintan a very SLIM majority in the Senate, but the likelihood of a voter referendum reversing marriage equality in that state now seems closer to reality.
