And Scott Walker romps to re-election in Wisconsin.
No news from Iowa yet, but if Joni Ernst picks up that Senate seat – and the latest polls had her a tad ahead – then that puts the GOP up six seats, without LA’s runoff. I’m guessing Perdue wins in GA, and Roberts is still leading in KS, which means the Obama Administration will have to get used to dealing with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
46% of Colorado precincts in according to RealClearPolitics, and we have Cory Gardner leading Mark Udall 50.7% to 44.2%, and (wow!) Bob Beauprez leading John Hickenlooper 49.2% to 46.8%. Our Congressman Mike Coffman (CO-6) looks to be cruising to an easy win.
The state legislature picture is unclear. No hard news yet.
Things in the East are still really interesting. In Virginia, it’s looking very possible that GOP candidate Ed Gillespie may actually eke out a win. If that happens, it will be the surprise of the night.
First polls close in about six minutes! Early returns should show what kind of a night it will be – watch New Hampshire and North Carolina. If they go GOP (anyone’s guess) then the Dems are going to have a very bad night. If the incumbents in both those states survive, then it will be a nail-biter.
