Election Stuff

7:30 ET:

Tea Party is doing well early. Paul and Rubio win big in their states.

Check out Indiana – is it possible that every House seat could go to the GOP?

Keep your eye on New Hampshire – Stephen, who never led in the polls, is currently tied with Lynch in the race for governor. Early on the GOP is up in every race (except the tie). The energy from the right might be enough to get Stephen over Lynch. Interesting.

UPDATE 8:00 ET

McMahon and O’Donnell fell – something some republicans will have a hard time stomaching. I’m not so queasy. McMahon was great fiscally, but not so much socially. Still, I think she would have been a great pick up. O’Donnell’s loss is tough, but I disagree that having Castle would have been good for the GOP. I’m not into RINOs. We don’t need more Charlie Crist’s in the party.

On a bright note, Grayson is losing big in Florida right now. Few things give me greater pleasure.

UPDATE 8:15 ET

Perhaps a big upset going on in Virginia with Griffith over Boucher. He’s up 6 with 70% in. Boucher is up 10-15 points in every poll until this final week where Griffith went up +1. This is a flip that FEW were considering.

UPDATE 8:30 ET

Kentucky-6 (near and dear to me) is VERY close right now – 49/49. If Andy Barr takes this it will be a flip for the GOP. You may recall the video I had earlier this week regarding Andy Barr…he’s the real deal.

Bye Blanche!

UPDATE 8:30 ET

Perriello, the only guy Obama supported, loses in Virginia. …not that this has anything to do with Obama.

UPDATE 8:45 ET

West Virginia let’s us down, but it took Manchin shooting a gun at Obama’s agenda (something the left didn’t imply meant racial violence). It looks like the GOP won’t take the senate tonight unless the people at the polls in CT and DE were lying.

UPDATE 9:30 ET

Still a very close race in my district (Kentucky-6). Ben Chandler is leading by about 150 votes over Andy Barr with over 200,000 votes counted.

The only county not turning in their ballots is Licoln county – a county that is VERY conservative; one McCain won by a 5:1 margain in 2008.

UPDATE 9:45 ET

Is Chris Matthews coming around to the reality that Maddow, Olbermann, and the rest of the MSNBC crew have abandoned? Maddow just proclaimed that this election is a Tea Party referendum on the Republican Party, Olbermann said something only he could think was clever, and Matthews warns them that this Tea Party movement is real. He basically admits that democrats shouldn’t poopoo this movement.

UPDATE 9:58 ET

Karl Rove was “shushed” by Britt Hume.

UPDATE 10:15 ET

Governor’s races – We were alredy going to win a lot of them according to the polls. Here are a few that look’s like we may pick up that were toss ups.

FL, OH, VT, CT.

Unfortunately, the Democrats did better on the close states.

UPDATE 10:30 ET

Tough one – Looks like Chandler might squeek out by about 500 votes over Andy Barr.
It looks like this election may be too close to go to bed with a winner. Perhaps we will find out tomorrow.

UPDATE 10:40 ET

Feingold will no longer co-author any bills to ruin this country.
Nikki Haley was able to overcome the typical leftist attack against women and become the governor of SC.

UPDATE 11:00 ET

California deserves what they get. How can a state that can’t even pay its employees because it is so backward economically and vote against two VERY successful women (in fact, two of the MOST successful individuals in California)? I’m beside myself.

UPDATE 11:09ET
Toomey is going to win in PA. That’s a huge win…nobody has announced it yet, but me. 🙂

UPDATE 11:20 ET

Giannoulias is going to lose to Kirk. This is HUGE!
No projections from the media networks…but they’re just 2000 gun shy. I’m telling you that I’ve looked at the counties that still haven’t turned in all of their ballots in IL and PA – the GOP candidates are going to pull this off.

UPDATE 11:30 ET

2012 Senators that have to be a little worried about their seats.

Ben Nelson (D) in Nebraska
Debbie Stabenow (D) of Michigan
John Tester (D) of Montana
Claire McCaskill (D) of Missouri
Kent Contrad (D) of North Dakota
Olympia Snow (RINO) of Maine
Bob Casey Jr (D) of Pennsylvania
Jim Webb (D) of Virginia
Herb Kohl (D) of Wisconsin

Think we won’t have the majority in 2 years?

UPDATE 11:50 ET

Some potential victories…How about winning a Senate seat in Washington?

How about winning the governorship in Oregon? Illinois? Ohio? Pennsylvania? and Florida?
If you think that the people of those states looking to the GOP as the better choice for their executives doesn’t say something about the 2012 Presidential campaign…you’re wrong.

UPDATE 12:05 ET

MSNBC is snickering and making fun of concessions by republicans with all the humor of a 4th grade class. Then they talk about the need for federal statutes regarding concession speeches. Winning the hearts and minds of the people – MSNBC.

UPDATE 12:20 ET

99% in, everyone else calling it, 75k votes seperating them, Sestak already calling to concede…but MSNBC will not call it for Toomey.

Looking grim for Rossi in Washington.

FoxNews, an hour after me, called Kirk in Illinois making him the 46th GOP senator. This is a big blow to Obama.

UPDATE 12:40 ET

We have the House. No surprise…but it’s ours. We’re at +53 right now. I think we get at least 65.

UPDATE 12:45 ET

MSNBC goes nuts over the Reid win. It’s unfortunate that Nevadans fell for this one. 90%+ of Latino voters voted for Harry… This was turned into a race race in spite of this state being among the worst economically. Nevada and California, joined at the hip…and apparently share the empty wallet.

UPDATE 12:50 ET

I’m calling Colorado for Buck. Why? Because, unlike MSNBC who is close to calling it for Bennett, I’ve done my homework. Buck will win.

UPDATE 12:40 ET

Going to bed after a short post.

    I am so proud of my fellow Virginians in the 5th district. We were all hoping to get rid of "One Term Tom" and they made it happen, good job. =)

    Whats up with the KY-6 Chandler Vs. Barr race?

  • Anonymous November 2, 2010 at 8:40 PM

    Thanks for the excellent coverage!
    How close would the race have to be for Barr to possibly call for a recount?

    Anonymous,

    It's close enough for a recall now. We won't know who the winner is tonight. As of now Chandler is ahead by 600 votes. That's rough.

    Thanks for the insight.
    Great Blog!
