In other news, Massachusetts voted against repealing the state's law prohibiting discrimination against transgender people during yesterday's elections.

Meanwhile, current House Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has officially announced his bid to become the minority leader. Rep. Jim Jordan also filed.

I'm still tickled that that they'll be in the minority. I just love the sound of that; House Republican Minority. It has a nice ring to it.

Finally, Putin's favorite congressman Dana Rohrabacher has been defeated by Democratic challenger Harley Rouda. You may recall that Rohrabacher once praised Putin's muscles.

“We were having a little bit too much to drink, I guess. But anyways, we started arguing about who won the Cold War, etc. And so we decided to settle it like men do when they’ve had too much to drink in the pub. And so we got down to these arm wrestling matches. And I ended up being paired up with Putin. And he’s a little guy, but boy I tell you, he put me down in a millisecond. He is tough. … His muscles are just unbelievable.”

A whole lot of women won yesterday; Democratic women. Democratic women won in places where Democrats haven't won in decades.
