Democrats Pick Up Several Governorships
Democratic candidates won at least seven gubernatorial races in Republican-held states on Tuesday.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker narrowly lost to Tony Evers in his bid for a third term, and Gov. Bruce Rauner lost big to billionaire J.B. Pritzker in deep-blue Illinois.
In addition to these victories, Democrats also picked up open seats in Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, and New Mexico.
Races yet to be called include Alaska, Connecticut, and Georgia.
