The atmosphere at work today was quiet, bordering on "there's nobody here" ... but the place was fully occupied. One person described it as shell-shocked, which might not be a bad simile. All those doctors and nurses were really, REALLY hoping for a different outcome.
Like many of the so-called red states, Alaska swung harder to the right: we already have a governor with an R after his name, and the Repubs controlled the State house. Yesterday, several Ds were unseated in the Senate (some due to redistricting), and the Rs now control that as well.
The next few weeks and months could be interesting, to say the least.
