Blogging Inside the Beltway

It's been a very long day.  I voted in Rhode Island this morning, went to Philadelphia for lunch with some old friends, then made my way to Washington to watch the election returns.  It is now 2:00am and I am still watching.  As of right now, the Democrats have won control of the House. They have won three seats in the Senate with three more still undecided.  The Democrats have also won a number of governorships.

 

In Virginia, the results are in and James Webb (D) has "won" by about 2,700 votes.  The result is so close that there will probably be a recount.  George Allen (R) has not conceded, so expect a lot of lawyers in Virginia. 

 

Jon Tester (D) is ahead in Montana, but not enough precincts have reported yet to declare him the winner.  He is currently ahead 51-47% with 64% of the precincts reporting.

 

Claire McCaskill (D) has also "defeated" Jim Talent in Missouri, but it is within 1% at the moment. McCaskill is up by slightly more than 25,000 votes with 85% reporting.  Missouri may also be swarmed with attorneys and a recount may be in the works.

 

All in all, it has been a good day for Democrats.  They need to win the three remaining Senate seats to gain control of the Senate, but that looks very possible.  I believe Jon Tester will soon be declared the winner in Montana and the Dems lead in the other two races.  We'll see what happens in the coming days, but I, for one, am going to sleep.
