On a night with a conspicuously absent blue wave — a red wave happened concurrently, leading to a disappointing mish-mish of results (though Dems are still favored to win the House) — Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been elected governor of Colorado, making him the first-ever gay man elected to a governorship in the U.S.!
Watch the moment Jared Polis introduced his long-term partner during his victory speech after being projected to win Colorado's governor race. The crowd went wild. Polis will become the country's first openly gay governor. https://t.co/LgYYWvU8lu pic.twitter.com/HIBOXj0Zzy— CNN (@CNN) November 7, 2018
