Boiling Point: Western voters weighed in on climate change, up and down the ballot

There will be plenty of time to see how that plays out. At the moment, I’m more interested in the down-ballot races that are getting relatively less attention but could have significant climate and environmental impacts at the local level.
This will not be a comprehensive accounting. But here are some results from across the West that caught my attention…
