DENVER (AP) — Voters in a smattering of elections across the country struck a chord for moderation. Results Tuesday from governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia to ballot measures in Colorado suggest pockets of American voters accept government playing a role in their lives, as long as it's not too dominant. Republican Gov. Chris Christie won a second term as governor in New Jersey. He talked about being a conservative, but stressed how government can work. Democrat Terry McAuliffe used the same pragmatic playbook to win the governor's race in Virginia. In Alabama, a business-backed, mainstream Republican defeated a more strident conservative in a Republican congressional primary runoff. Colorado voters, meanwhile, rejected huge tax increase for education, but approved a 25 percent tax as part of regulating newly legal marijuana sales.
