1) On Election Day, there were plenty of non-surprises (the repeal of SB 5 in Ohio, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear
winning reelection in Kentucky, to name a couple), but the sound defeat of a Mississippi initiative that would have expanded the definition of personhood and would thereby ban abortions was notable. Meanwhile, in Virginia control of the state Senate is still in doubt this morning. Republicans appear to have picked up two seats needed to get to a 20-20 tie, but one race's margin is so slim, a recount may follow.

, who notched several significant victories. Be sure to check out our Election Night roundup
