    THE BIG IDEA: Tuesday was the best day for Democrats politically since Barack Obama won reelection in 2012. Remember, conservatives scored significant victories in the November 2014, 2015 and 2016 elections. Democrats desperately needed some wins after they went all-in on a House special election in Georgia this spring and lost. Last night, they got them.

    Voters came out in droves. They braved the rain and the cold to send a message to President Trump. The results across the country represent nothing less than a stinging repudiation of Trump on the first anniversary of his election.

    Rep. Scott Taylor, a Republican who represents Virginia Beach, said both Democrats and Republicans registered their disenchantment with Trump. “I don't know how you get around that this wasn't a referendum on the administration, I just don't,” he told reporters. “Some of the very divisive rhetoric really prompted and helped usher in a really high Democratic turnout in Virginia.”

    Next on to 2018 elections
    Keep up the good work Donald!

    or jacks up taxes to pay for the govt bloat people will realize they made a mistake or move to a Red state, then vote the same way they did in NJ and wonder again "what happened"

    The candidate in Virginia didn't ask for trumps help and was an establishment RINO
    no surprise he lost now the establishment can follow suit (like the MSM is already) and claim its a referendum on Trump and his policies

    Trump base didnt show up.Hard to get excited about Gillespie vs Northram.Virginia was gonna lose,regardless..
    As for Jersey,a cronie of Christy would have lost to even Hillary..Maybe Repubs will see it as a wake-up call,but other than that,it really dont mean much.Two blue states went blue,BIG WHOOP.

    Ahh Dems. what you gonna do! It's strange that people who hate Trump would still vote Dem even though our party is in the toilet. Been reading about Brazils book and it lets it all hang out-soon to be a movie I'l bet

    After Maine Voters Approve Medicaid Expansion, Governor Raises Objections
    https://www.npr.org/sections/health...medicaid-expansion-governor-raises-objections
    Just hours after Maine voters became the first in the nation to use the ballot box to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, Republican Gov. Paul LePage said he wouldn't implement it unless the Legislature funds the state's share of an expansion.

    LePage has long been a staunch opponent of Medicaid expansion. The Maine Legislature has passed bills to expand the insurance program five times since 2013, but the governor has vetoed each one.

    out Of 6 million registered voters 2 million actually voted in New Jersey.
    Phil Murphy made a lot of promises I think the GOP felt let him have it and get it back in 4 years because there is no way he can deliver everything he promised.
