Tonight, Tammy Baldwin, an out gay woman, was elected to the Senate. Gay marriage won. And a President who openly came out in favor of gay marriage (something hard to imagine even a few years ago) was reelected.

For LGBT rights, it’s a game changing election.

Former McCain campaign staffer: voter fraud part of the ‘mythology’ of the GOP.

Raw Story:

Most outside spending this election was by conservative groups
Our latest analysis on spending in Election 2012 finds more than a few big numbers:
That whole pie above represents spending by super PACs and nonprofits groups, from Jan. 1, 2011 to Oct. 28th, 2012: $840 million.
The $577 million from conservative groups is roughly 69 percent of the pie.
Liberal groups spent $237 million, or about 28 percent.
Each and every dollar of that pie was made possible the ‘Citizens United’ ruling.
Reporters and analysts at Center for Public Integrity and the Center for Responsive Politics came together to bring you these (almost) final elections numbers, see the rest of our work here.
