Election 2012: Analyzing The Results

An early look at the results of Tuesday's election and what they mean both for the Washington region and the rest of the country.

The Washington region's voters were in the middle of a lot more than a presidential race this week. The area also served as the battleground for hot-button issues like immigration and same-sex marriage, as well as the site of one of the most hotly-contested U.S. Senate races. We take an early look at what the results mean for the region and country.
