election results

By the time they read this people will have already heard the results somewhere else, so this is a little pointless, but anyway.

I'm getting this from http://www.beloblog.com/ProJo_Blogs/politics/ .

Whitehouse (D) wins over Chaffee (R) in the Senate. Current vote count: 205,275 to 178,550.

Carcieri (R; incumbent) barely beats Fogarty (D) 197,016 to 189,099 for Governor. Wonder if there will be a recount?

The casino proposal went down, 136,406 to 231,982.

Proposal 2, restoring voting rights to felons, looks like it will pass, 181,885 to 172,758.

Looks like most of the budget questions passed, with the exception of Question 7, the Fort Adams State Park bonds (which katrinkles convinced me to vote for).

There were a bunch of local Providence initiatives on the ballot also. Looks like they all passed except for question 12. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find out which question that was, so I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what that means.
