Massachusetts will send its first woman Senator to Washington in January. Elizabeth Warren defeated Senator Scott Brown tonight. It’s still early but it’s a good night so far for women:
- Senator Claire McCaskill defeated Todd Akin who made headlines with his comments about legitimate rape and pregnancy.
- Joe Donnelly beat Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Senate race. Mourdock made news when he talked about pregnancy resulting from rape.
- New Hampshire elected Maggie Hassan as the only pro-choice female governor.
- Powerhouses Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Debbie Stabenow and Amy Klobuchar were all reelected.
