Democrats Win Control of Executive and Legislature Branches in Four States

HeadlineNov 10, 2022

In Michigan, where Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer easily won reelection Tuesday, Democrats have won back full control of the Legislature for the first time since 1983. Democrats also won complete control of both legislative chambers and the governor’s office in Maryland, Massachusetts and Minnesota.

Nebraska voters have approved a ballot measure to incrementally raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026.

In South Dakota, voters have approved a ballot measure to expand the state’s Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act. The move to bring health insurance to an estimated 45,000 low-income people was opposed by South Dakota Republicans, including Governor Kristi Noem.
