Blue Cross/Blue Shield's candidate, Gretchen Whitmer just won the Democratic Party primary for Governor in Michigan.

Details on her ties to the insurance company here.

The special election in Ohio's 12th Congressional district, which has been presented as a bellwether* for November is too close to call, but it looks like the Republican has a vote lead of a little bit more than a thousand votes.

*The etymology of the word "bellwether" is interesting, it literally means a castrated sheep with a bell around its neck.
I find the juxtaposition of politics and castrated sheep remarkably apropos.

So, a bellwether could steer you wrong...
