"Last night’s results should be a bellwether for not just abortion rights, but for many progressive policies Democrats will be running on in future state elections, and in 2020." (The Cut)

A few key takeaways from the elections explained here, including how the results may explain national politics, consequential issues and President Trump. (The Atlantic)

"The Republican Party’s long suburban nightmare entered another terrifying hour here: Democrats seized control of suburban Philadelphia’s Delaware County Council for the first time in history." (Politico)

What yesterday's elections may mean for the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and how it may closer than ever to becoming a reality. (Vox)

“Tonight, voters in Kentucky sent a message loud and clear for everyone to hear. It’s a message that says our elections don’t have to be about right versus left, they are still about right versus wrong.” (The New York Times)
