Morning Reads for The Morning After (November 4)

Votes are still being counted, and there is no declared winner. We count all of the legally received votes according to each state’s deadline.

National results, in case you are under a rock last night, can be found here, while state results are here.

There is, believe it or not, other news, so let us get to it.
