I am pretty sure the Democrat that is the incumbent in my old district in SC is going to lose tonight. He was a pretty nice guy. Had a few lunches of me when I was in my internship in DC.

Fox News just called Florida for Rubio, and Coons for Delaware.

But those were pretty easy ones

So far, there have been no surprises in the senate races. They've called some more, and I'll try to post them in a bit.

Random note about the coverage....

The guy on fox talking about whose winning what seats in front of the big video screen just acknowledged the Tea Party began as a grass roots movement in support of Ron Paul. Neat :)

We have two TVs. One on CNN and another on MSNBC. We are getting a third for Fox. It is so freaking hard to understand what people are saying with three different channels going at the same time...

Think I got all those Grim, and NBC is calling Coons in Delaware, which I think we all knew was going to happen.

Just a reminder that the average midterm turnover is 28 seats in the House and 4 seats in the Senate. Determining how well Republicans did will be by how much more than that they get.
