Election Returns Open Thread

Polls will be closing shortly in a number of important elections. In Virginia, the gubernatorial battle between Democrat Ralph Northam and Trump acolyte Ed Gillespie promises to be a nail-biter.

Also in Virginia, transgender candidate Danica Roem has proven to be strong challenger for viciously anti-LGBT loony bird Bob Marshall’s seat in the state House.

In Atlanta, former city council president Cathy Woolard could become the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. Woolard, the first openly gay elected official in Georgia history, addressed this year’s LGBT journalists meeting in Orlando and we all came away impressed.

And in New York City, Bill De Blasio is expected to win reelection easily, although some local outlets are saying that the margin of his victory and voter turnout in general will be comment on his bumpy first term.
