After all that hoopla, the turnout by Dems wasn’t much of a factor in the results, reports our colleague Aaron Blake.

Elsewhere, our colleague Jason Horowitz has a fascinating piece in the Style section examining a complicated aspect of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith: the church’s evolving stance on race.

And this would be one heck of a blaze: Romney, who’s well-coiffed, said he wouldn’t “light my hair on fire” to please conservatives.

Elsewhere, members of Congress are often called on to make tough decisions, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) was picked to sit on the Post’s Beer Madness tasting panel. Of course, when asked to pick his favorite brews, he gave a home-state shout-out to a local brewery.
