Oregon patriot Chuck Wiese made this observation after the election results were finalized:

While we certainly celebrated Republican victories across the country, election night was bittersweet for conservatives in Oregon. These small pockets of blue managed to override the voters in the rest of the state once again.
Multnomah County, home to the People’s Republic of Portland, is the most liberal in the state of Oregon, but [...]
13,069 votes. That’s how close we came to finally having a Republican governor.

In November, four of the redder states in the country voted to raise the wage (South Dakota, Nebraska, Arkansas and Alaska). The latter state voted by a 38-point margin to boost its wage to $9.75. That will be the highest state wage The post Danny Westneat: Guess Who’s Disco
The long-term trend has been that union membership in the public sector — meaning government employees — has grown, while private sector membership has dropped. Since the end of the recession, though, that was flipped, with 300,000 more private-sector union employees and 400,000 fewer in the public sector. The post The State of the Unions: Membership Is Up,
