Election Results

Here are 2 quick observations:
1) With voters in Michigan approving a measure barring state affirmative action in education, employment and contracting, Michigan joins California and Washington as states with such voter-approved bans. It is striking that these ballot measures succeeded in three pretty reliably blue states.
2) I was also struck by how little coverage there was of state legislative races in the national news, given the role of state legislatures in creating Congressional districts (and everything else state legislators do), especially since Democrats captured a majority of state legislatures. Query whether we will now see any substantial pro-Democratic re-districting in advance of the 2010 census (taking a page from the Texas Republicans)?
