It's awfully early but McConnell is being declared the winner in Kentucky; McConnell projected winner as fate of Senate remains unclear

The ever accurate fivethirtyeight shows the senate all but locked in for the GOP, projecting a 52-48 majority.

I'll be sure to keep trying to post updates as the night goes on but most of the pundits are thinking that some results won't be in until a few days as certain races are going to be too close to call.

In other US election news, the US territory of Guam has voted in favor of medical marijuana with just over 66% of the vote.

*****************************************************

West Virginia is being called for GOPer Shelley Capito, the first woman to be elected to the senate from West Virginia.

*****************************************************

Pete Sessions of Alabama has been called for that senate seat. He was unopposed though, so...that was kinda obvious.

Lindsay Graham is being declared the victor by CNN with a mere 5% of the vote in.

*****************************************************

South Carolina has elected its first popularly elected black senator, another GOP win.

*****************************************************

Another GOP senate win as Tom Cotton takes Arkansas.

*****************************************************

Not sure how much longer I'll be able to edit this post but as of 9:08 PM EST, the Democrats have lost three senate seats to the GOP. That gives the GOP 43 and the Dems 38 with 19 still undecided.

*****************************************************

MSNBC is calling the Texas governor race for Greg Abbot (R) over Wendy Davis (D).

*****************************************************

The GOP is going to keep the house, likely picking up upwards of a dozen seats.
Meanwhile, the GOP lost the Pennsylvania governorship.

*****************************************************

The GOP has picked up South Dakota and Nebraska while the Dems grab New Hampshire. With 17 senate seats still undecided it's 39(D)-44(R).

*****************************************************

Re: McConnell. Ridiculously early.

This election stuff and the way they trip over themselves to be first is truly laughable.

Is this going to be our official election coverage thread? I always join these.

Anyways, I just got back from my local polling place (North Texas, almost 7pm now here). Probably the longest line I've been in for voting. Had to wait about 45 minutes to vote, but it's worth it.

McConnell is a real politician's politician. I hope Kentucky didn't vote him in. Whatever you think about either party that guy is as Washington as it gets. Corrupt to the core.

Sessions (R) Alabama I believe. He is the only one I've seen so far.

Can't get more accurate than that, or locked in...or too close to call either.

As a resident of Kentucky I agree with you completely but the Dim running was just as corrupt, maybe even more so because of her connections.
However, we did have the opportunity to vote for a third party candidate, last I heard the Libertarian was running at 3%! This despite the fact that Kentucky Educational Television changed their rules in mid-campaign to keep him out of the statewide debate.

CNN is now projecting the Republicans will take the South Dakota Senate seat.

Reps. now need just a net gain of 3 seats to take the Senate.

Ugh! Kay Hagan again? She never responded to any letters or emails about issues. All other politicians I have contacted have, even if I opposed their stand on an issue, but Hagan had to go in my opinion.

Not that I wanted Tillis... I chose the libertarian, if that weren't an option I'd write in "none of the above".
