Looks like Boston chose “the unions guy” (Marty Walsh) over “the
charter schools education guy” (John Connolly).
ETA: From commentor Rheinhard:
As a NJ voter, while Christie’s win is disappointing (while not unexpected — Barbara Buono ran a largely invisible campaign), one bright spot is the overwhelming victory of the ballot initiative to raise the NJ minimum wage to $8.25, with annual cost of living increases. This effectively overrides fatass’ veto of the bill passed by the NJ legislature, thanks to wage increase supporters getting it on the state ballot.
Got beaten to the front page, first by Cole and then by Soonergrunt. Wrap up your
bitching microanalyzing here…
I hope we see more of Barbara Buono:
