It’s All Over: Obama Takes the Sweep

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


The networks have called Louisiana for Obama. He’s won all three states tonight, as expected: Louisiana, Nebraska, and Washington. Time to make this a real Saturday night, folks. Prost!

Update: Whoops, I lied. I’m still digging around. Check out the turnout comparisons for the Democrats and the Republicans. With 59 percent of the vote returned in both races, 175,000 votes are in for the Democrats and just 74,000 are in for the Republicans. Yee-haw.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
