Andrew Gillum lost. Bill Nelson lost.

Joe Donnelly lost.

Richard Cordray lost.

Stacey Abrams lost.

All of the candidates in competitive races endorsed by former President Barack Obama were losers on Tuesday.

On Gillum, Fox News reports:

Republican Ron DeSantis will defeat Democrat Andrew Gillum in the battle to be Florida’s next governor, Fox News projects.

DeSantis, 40, an Iraq War veteran, decorated military lawyer and former Florida congressman, defeated the Tallahassee mayor by a razor thin margin Tuesday night, with the two candidates neck and neck in the heated contest for the majority of the evening.

Nelson’s loss was closer, but Obama still was unable to close the deal.
