Republican Phil Bryant was releected governor of Mississippi tonight, easily fending off challengers from the Democratic and Reform parties.
In Kentucky, businessman Matt Bevin won a surprisingly easy victory over the state's Attorney General, Jack Conway. Bevin outperformed the polls, which had shown either a dead heat or a small lead for Conway.
Louisiana will conduct a runoff for governor on November 21st. Unlike the above races won by Republicans, Democrat Jon Bel Edwards seems to be taking the lead against Senator David Vitter.
A number of mayoral races took place today. Democrat Jennifer Roberts won in Charlotte as did James Kenney in Philadelphia. Democrat Joe Hogsett was victorious in Indianapolis. Houston and San Francisco, among many other cities, will also elect a mayor tonight.
