So not a lot of the candidates I voted for, or even liked, won here in Nevada. The election results though, still made me happy in a way. Reid, who I hated, won, but his son, and most other Democrats, lost.
Why would such a thing make me happy? Even if they were unwilling to take the leap and vote independent or third party, voters in Nevada at least researched and formed an opinion on the individual candidates. Clearly, with the election being split between Republicans and Democrats, and very few races being close, this is the case.
People actually looked at the individual candidates, and not just the letter next to their names, and that is a good start.
