Breaking: President Obama wins Ohio and is Reelected

Duckworth, McCaskill, Brown, Kaine victorious

Republicans Set Back in Senate in Florida and Connecticut 07 Nov 2012 Democrats snatched Republican Senate seats in Indiana and Massachusetts on Tuesday and were poised to hold control of the Senate, handing Republicans a string of stinging defeats for the second campaign season in a row. In Indiana, Representative Joe Donnelly did what had seemed impossible by taking a Senate seat for the Democrats in a deep-red state... In Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard professor, swept from power Senator Scott P. Brown, the Republican whose surprise victory in January 2010 heralded the coming of the Tea Party wave. Those Democratic triumphs followed quick wins in Ohio, Connecticut, Florida and Pennsylvania, all states where Republicans had harbored ambitions of victory that would propel them to a Senate majority for the first time since 2006.

Maggie Hassan is Only Democratic Woman Governor in US (EMILY's List) 06 Nov 2012 We've just scored a major win for New Hampshire women and families -- Maggie Hassan will be the next governor of the Granite State and the only pro-choice Democratic woman governor in the country.

Exit polls 2012: Voters blame George W. Bush 06 Nov 2012 Early exit polls released on Tuesday evening show that about half of voters still blame President [sic] George W. Bush more than President Barack Obama for the country's economic problems and most cite the economy as their top issue in the election. The exit poll results released by The Associated Press fit with the argument Obama's team has been making in the lead-up to the election.

Gordon Campbell: On The End Game In Spain (And Other World News)

The coverage of international news seems almost entirely dependent on a random selection of whatever some overseas news agency happens to be carrying overnight... Here are a few interesting international stories that have largely flown beneath the radar this past week. More>>

Amnesty/Human Rights Watch: Appalling Abuse, Neglect Of Refugees On Nauru

Refugees and asylum seekers on Nauru, most of whom have been held there for three years, routinely face neglect by health workers and other service providers who have been hired by the Australian government, as well as frequent unpunished assaults by local Nauruans. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Censorship Havoc In South Africa’s State Broadcaster

Gordon Campbell: On A Bad Week For Malcolm Turnbull, And The Queen

Gordon Campbell: On Bidding Bye Bye To Boris

Gordon Campbell: On Britain's Pleas For Mercy

So… Boris Johnson is promising that he won't be holding a snap general election, if he's chosen as the next UK Conservative Party leader. Reportedly, he is even making that promise a feature of his leadership campaign, since a vote for Boris would therefore mean (wink wink) that his colleagues wouldn't have to risk their jobs and face the wrath of the British public until 2020.
