E.J. Dionne: The U.S. Has Made a Step to the Left

"The center of gravity in American politics moved left in Tuesday’s off-year elections.
Republicans took a big step back from the tea party. An ebullient progressive was elected mayor of New York City. And a Democrat was elected governor of Virginia after campaigning unapologetically as a supporter of gun control and a liberal on social issues."
---E.J. Dionne, Washington Post
