    Election night winner: progressive health care initiatives.

    THE 45,000 OR so residents of Dunn County live off on the western side of Wisconsin, not far from central Minnesota, but not close to much of anything. Like other rural counties, it leans heavily Republican, going by double digits to Donald Trump in 2020. This year, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., notched a 14-point margin there, and Tim Michels beat the in bent Democratic Gov. Tony Evers by 9 percentage points.

    But when it came to health care, Dunn County voters said they would support a national health insurance program. The overwhelmingly Republican residents of this farming community approved a ballot measure that affirms their support for a single-payer public health insurance program. The idea, which passed 51-49, ran 11 points ahead of Evers, who was reelected statewide, and 16 points ahead of Senate candidate Mandela Barnes.

    The largely unnoticed rural election result affirmed support for nationalizing and expanding health insurance, a program popularly known as Medicare for All. While the national media discourse about the election largely ignored health care issues beyond abortion rights, voters across the country registered support for progressive reforms focused on improving health care access and reining in the for-profit industries that dominate the medical system.

    In Arizona and South Dakota, like in Dunn County, progressive health care initiatives outpaced Democratic Party candidates by a wide margin. Arizona voters passed Proposition 209, a measure that reduces the allowable interest rate for medical debt and expands exemptions for what can be garnished by medical debt collectors, with a landslide 72 percent in favor. South Dakota became the 40th state to expand Medicaid coverage, making an additional 40,000 residents eligible.

    Oregon passed Measure 111, making it the first state to enshrine a right to “cost-effective, clinically appropriate affordable health care” for every resident in the state cons ution. In Massachusetts, voters enacted Question 2, which forces dental insurance companies to spend at least 83 percent of premiums on actual dental care, rather than administrative costs and profits.

    What choice did they have?

    Failing to certify could have jeopardized Eli Crane, Schweikert, and other Republicans downstream

    The AZ GOP needs to flush out the Kari Lake's out of the system and get back to the basics that won them elections for decades before 2018

    lol sinema isn't expanding the court, all they'll be able to do is ran through judges because they won't need equal representation on judiciary committee

    to win, walker was supposed to overperform compared to november by about 1% across the board. looking like he's underperforming if anything

    those reddest, most rural counties are incidentally the smallest ones that are having very little impact on the broader results

    needle evening out a bit.. now only at 66% confidence in warnock

    still, looks like walker is going to need an overperformance in the atlanta metro area. dekalb, fulton, etc. but thus far, his overperforming areas have been the deep red ones, not thoses leaning blue. still a lot of vote to be counted, and margins are still very tight

    back into tossup territory per the needle. nate silver thinks the needle is being conservative

    edit: needle has been paused as they investigate some data issue. probably explains why the numbers were shifting so quickly despite little to no significant overperformances by walker

    dekalb has reported like 5%

    fulton/cobb/chatham all under 60. gwinett right at 60

    warnock has plenty of raw votes coming in, unless he has significantly underperformed in those areas relative to november
