It was a busy election day across the country on Tuesday. Democrat Bill de Blasio handed Republican Joe Lhota a 50 point “smackdown” in the New York City mayoral election. In New Jersey, popular Republican governor Chris Christie handily won re-election over Democratic challenger Barbara Buono. Christie then seized the moment to further his profile on the national stage and attack Washington dysfunction in a fiery victory speech.
And Democrat Terry McAuliffe won the Virginia gubernatorial election, because, well, someone had to.
These races were, in large part, well predicted by pollsters and political reporters. But there were a number of other issues voted on that did not get the same amount of press. Here are five election results from Tuesday that you may have missed.
