Jon Stewart on Conservatives’ Tough Election Night

On last night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart ran down the results of Tuesday’s off-year elections. The defeat of an Ohio amendment that would have significantly reduced public workers’ collective bargaining rights was hailed as a “huge victory” for unions. “This is what it’s come to for organized labor,” said Stewart. “A ‘huge victory’ means that unions will be allowed to continue to exist.” Meanwhile, in Arizona, “a state so red it thinks its own name sounds a little too Mexican,” voters recalled Republican Senator Russell Pearce, the man behind the state’s restrictive immigration laws. “Ironically,” Stewart jokes, “Pearce was beaten so badly in this election that he cracked open and candy spilled out.” Watch Stewart break down the conservative losses from election night.
