The 2018 midterm elections resulted in plenty of winners (and losers) across the board. Democrats took the House, Republicans will keep the Senate, and there’s something for each side to celebrate. Here are some of the notable winners and losers from the 2018 midterm elections.

Wins

Florida’s felons have something to celebrate since amendment 4 passed in Florida, restoring voting rights for convicted felons.

Jared Polis from Colorado became the first openly gay man elected governor, and Democrats elected two Muslim women and two Native American women. This is a win for diversity and representation in politics.

Medicaid will be expanding amidst ballot initiatives passing in Nebraska, Idaho, and Utah to expand Medicaid eligibility under Obamacare.

A prop in California to keep daylight savings time standard all year-long passed, now it’s up to the legislature to make the final decision on this one.

Mitch McConnell was elected to another term as GOP leader, bringing in a win for the Republicans.

Losses

Danny Tarkanian, the son of UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian lost, again. This was Tarkanian’s sixth attempt in 14 years; from a State senate campaign to three congressional races, the odds don’t seem to be in his favor.

California’s gas tax prop lost, upsetting many supporters. The prop was going to eliminate the gas tax placed in California to help with road repairs.

Beto O’Rourke lost a US Senate seat to former presidential candidate Ted Cruz, saddening O’Rourke’s supporters. Some think he will run for presidency in 2020, though…
