BMG News has called the following results in the three statewide ballot questions:
Question 1 (repeal sales tax on alcohol): Yes
Question 2 (repeal chapter 40B): No
Question 3 (cut sales tax to 3%): No
If we had to take one “bad” result in MA, I’d definitely have picked question 1. So, there you go.
Looking like a really great night in Massachusetts, even as the rest of the country isn’t going so great. But, honestly, it could have been a lot worse. We’re keeping the Senate, and we may win some seats that were in serious danger. WV looks like a win, and IL, PA and CO are promising, if not yet in the bag. We lose the House, but we could have lost it by a lot more than we did.
