US election results today have seen Republicans win Democratic governorships in New Jersey and Virginia, and independent Mike Bloomberg reelected as Mayor of New York by a surprisingly narrow margin.
Two races remain close and worth watching. In Maine, “Question 1” is asking voters whether they support a new law on same-sex marriage. As it stands the “no” position (in favour of same-sex marriage) has a very slight lead.
No – 112,421
Yes – 112,245
Meanwhile, in New York’s 23rd congressional district, Democrat Bill Owens is leading ahead of Conservative Doug Hoffman:
Bill Owens (D) – 47,826 – 49.1%
Doug Hoffman (C) – 44,349 – 45.5%
Dede Scozzafava (R) – 5,294 – 5.4%
