November 4th was pretty demoralizing for most of the country, but there are a few important bright spots we should mention for Working Families.
First, Scott Brown was rejected by the people of yet another state, as New Hampshire voters chose to re-elect Working Families Champ Jeanne Shaheen instead of Pretender Scott Brown. We'll keep an eye out though in case he tries to take his show to yet another state for the future.
Also the people of Pennsylvania chose to elect Tom Wolf to be their next Governor, and wisely chose to retire Tom Corbett. With help from groundwork we did in 2012, the voters of Pennsylvania held Tom Corbett accountable in 2014 for cutting tens of thousands of children from health care, and slashing schools by more than $1 billion while giving out unfair tax-breaks and new jobs to his corporate friends and campaign donors.
Unfortunately Scott Walker was able to pull the wool over the eyes of the people of Wisconsin yet again, and he will most likely try to Make Things Harder for the American people next by running for President. We will be there to stop him though.
The results show we have our work cut out for us, and we'll need to fight even more hard to protect working families from the attacks that are sure to follow.
The fight has only just begun.
