Okay that is the way that the governor election projections look right now. Blue represents a win for the Republicans. Red for the Democrats; yellow is where the polls have closed but no projection has yet been made. Dark green is where there is a governor election today and tonight but the polls are still open and people are still voting. We can make a call in the Nebraska governor election. Pete Ricketts will be the next governor of Nebraska. He holds that seat for the Republicans.

Pete Ricketts
Nebraska Governor

The following are the governor elections where the polls have closed but no candidate has been declared the winner.

Mike Michaud vs Paul LePage vs Eliot Cutler
Maine Governor

Martha Coakley vs Charlie Baker
Massachusetts Governor

Dan Malloy vs Tom Foley
Connecticut Governor

Pat Quinn vs Bill Rauner
Illinois Governor

Anthony Brown vs Larry Hogan
Maryland Governor

Jason Carter vs Nathan Deal
Georgia Governor

Paul Davis vs Sam Brownback
Kansas Governor

There is another election that is undecided right now where the polls have closed. That being North Carolina where Kay Hagan is running for reelection tonight.

Kay Hagan vs Thom Tillis
North Carolina Senator

There are some projections to be made right now.

Tom Foley
Connecticut Governor

This is an early call. Tom Foley will be the next governor of Connecticut according to the information we have coming out of the state. Another projection coming now Nathan Deal will hang on in Georgia and win reelection. He turns back now a spirited challenge from Democrat Jason Carter.

Nathan Deal
Georgia Governor

And a high profile call. Its not all down and out for Democrats Mark Pryor will win reelection to the Senate in Arkansas defeating Tom Cotton the Republican. The Maine graphic and that in Nebraska was not working. The Maine governor election is undecided at this hour.

Mark Pryor
Arkansas Senator

John Edwards/Lyndon Johnson: 157
Garrison Porter/Penelope Cruz: 264
Undecided: 117
270 to win
We will move now to the red hot presidential race. It looks like Garrison Porter was starting to pull away from his opponent there toward the end of the campaign.

The race is always a bitter one between John Edwards and Garrison Porter. Edwards is competitive in the South and Garrison Porter tries to compete everywhere else.

Penelope Cruz makes her debut on a Republican ticket as the Vice Presidential nominee for that respective political party. Some interesting polling data. Penelope Cruz running as a Missourian seems to have helped in Illinois. Its not often that in opinion polls Illinois is considered solid Republican turf. But it is tonight. Minnesota also a state that has saved the candidacy of Garrison Porter before seems poised to again go into the Republican column.

And Missouri of course.
Edwards: 0        Porter: 8        270 to win
The top of the 7 o'clock hour does not bring a lot of information from the voters in terms of any projections. The Edwards/Johnson camp we are told is awaiting returns in Charolette North Carolina and Garrison Porter & Penelope Cruz and their camp are waiting in Knoxville Tennessee. 5 states are undecided and the opinion poll gave some reason to expect that. Only South Carolina if the polls is to be believed is solidly in the Porter column. We can project that when the votes are counted Garrison Porter will carry South Carolina.
Edwards: 20        Porter: 8        270 to win
The next call comes in Ohio. Garrison Porter was just unable to compete there in this campaign. It appears John Edwards will carry the state right now. The Democrat parts of the state are the first to come in and right now it looks possible Edwards will carry 60 percent of the vote statewide in Ohio.
Edwards: 53        Porter: 92        270 to win
8 o'clock EST brings a handful of projections in the East and on into some of the plain states. Georgia goes for Garrison Porter. That state had been undecided for an hour. Illinois and Missouri as the poll predicted drop for the Republican Porter/Cruz ticket. West Virginia and surprisingly at this early hour Delaware to the Democrat. Not too surprising actually the states more often than not go Democrat. Garrison Porter is usually lucky to carry West Virginia when he does. Much left to be decided in this election between John Edwards and Garrison Porter.

There are some other projections to make right now. First in Maine. Susan Collins will return to the United States Senate for her 4th consecutive term in that office. In her last election Collins carried all counties in the state of Maine even when Democrats did well nationally. That previous election being 2008.

Susan Collins
Maine Senator

Senator Collins is set to probably at this point carry all counties again in Maine. Democrats had some hope of making that election race competitive but it appears that Collins will very clearly be reelected tonight. Ed Markey is going back to the Senate for his first full term representing Massachusetts and Chris Coons wins in Delaware. Coons is unopposed in this election in the state.

Ed Markey
Massachusetts Senator

Chris Coons
Delaware Senator

Dick Durbin will go back to the Senate. Republicans wanted to make that competitive. It took a few minutes here tonight to declare Durbin the winner.

Yes four years ago Mark Kirk won the Senate seat once held by President Obama and truth be told Durbin found himself in what is the most competitive election he has had up to this point. It may only get harder for him as Illinois swings every slowly but swings none the less to the Republicans. Ed Markey ran 22 points ahead of his opponent in Massachusetts in opinion polls and Chris Coons ran unamiously. Dick Durbin led statewide by 14. The senior senator from Illinois may well win with less than 60% of the vote statewide in Illinois.

Dick Durbin
Illinois Senator

Jeff Sessions is doing really well in Alabama tonight. He is reelected to the United States Senate. So much football in Alabama he must be glad to have an office in Washington as a little bit of a hide away.

Senator Sessions has avoided a close election in his career. The people of Alabama seem to be very content with him being one of their two United State Senators. Its one thing Auburn & Alabama football fans agree on.

At least those fans who actually live in Alabama.

Jeff Sessions
Alabama Senator

Jim Inholfe is returning to the United State Senate representing Oklahoma. He was thought to be vulnerable this year early on but he appears to be winning pretty clearly tonight.

No Democrat has been sent to Washington as a Senator from Oklahoma since 1992. Oklahoma Republicans have more reason to be happy right now. We are calling Mary Fallin the governor of Oklahoma. Hers was thought to be a competitive election race.

She was thought possibly to be out of there tonight.

Yes but from the information we have coming out of Oklahoma says when the votes are counted there Mary Fallin will remain governor of Oklahoma defeating Joe Dorman.

Jim Inholfe
Oklahoma Senator

Mary Fallin
Oklahoma Governor

The Nebraska governor election can be called for the Republicans. Both the governor and senate elections in Kansas are undecided at this hour.

Paul Davis vs Sam Brownback
Kansas Governor

Chad Taylor vs Pat Roberts vs Greg Orman
Kansas Senator

Some of the election returns have begun to pick up now as the coverage of this election enters the 8 o'clock hour. 15 states and the District of Columbia have just closed their polls and some big races have had their projections made now. In Tennessee Lamar Alexander will be returning to the Senate. He was first elected in 2002.

Lamar Alexander
Tennessee Senator

He will be serving in Washington representing the volunteer state and in Nashville that being the state capital of Tennessee.

Bill Haslam
Tennessee Governor

Governor Bill Haslam will be reelected tonight. The only question in his election campaign is will it be a wider margin of victory or smaller in comparison to what the Tennessee governor had four years ago.

Some political analyists watching Tennessee say that it is likely that in 4 years when Bill Haslam will be ineligible to run for a 3rd term that the Democrats will take back the state house there. Haslam is very overwhelmingly popular with all ethnic groups and different economic classes in Tennessee. He has become a very effective chief executive for his state.

In Alabama another governor race to call where there had never been any suspense.

Robert Bentley
Alabama Governor

Robert Bentley the former medical phyisician turned statewide politician will be going back to the Alabama state house for another 4 year term. Florida this is a big call and one that will leave some Republicans statewide left to put pieces of the puzzle back together. Charlie Crist. This one of the first real major projections of the night. Charlie Crist will return to the Florida state house. He is reelected tonight to serve a non consecutive 2nd term. He spent most of his first term as governor a Republican and now returns to the state house for a full term so we assume as a Democrat. Crist defeats Scott. A surprisingly early call in the sunshine state that being Florida.

Charlie Crist
Florida Governor

Make that 2 sitting Republican governors to go down at this hour. Some of us were holding our breath for this call. Pennsylvania usually reelects their governors but no tonight. Tom Wolf defeats Republican governor Tom Corbett to become in January governor of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Tom Corbett
Pennsylvania Governor

I am told now that Mark Warner the senator from Virginia has been reelected. That's a call that since an hour ago Democrats have been holding their breath. When all of the votes are in and counted in Virginia Mark Warner is set now to return as the senior United States Senator from Virginia.

Mark Warner
Virginia Senator

No call in the Maryland governors election. At least so far no call there tonight. The last time a Republican even made a competitive bid to occupy the Maryland state house was 8 years ago. It could happen tonight. Democrats may well be saying no it will not after the Warner declaration but the votes will tell.

Anthony Brown vs Larry Hogan
Maryland Governor

It took an hour to call the Warner election win. In 2010 Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy for example was returned right away at the top of the 7 o'clock hour EST. Maggie Hassan in a seat contrary to every other governor election we will call tonight besides Vermont that is up every two years wins another term tonight. Hassan very popular in the granite state.

Maggie Hassan
New Hampshire Governor

Another race before going to a break we need to talk about briefly is the New Hampshire Senate election.

Jeanne Shaheen vs Scott Brown
New Hampshire Senator

Shaheen a very disciplined politician who was governor before she went to the United State Senate. She lost an election as she retired from the New Hampshire governorship in 2002 and went to the Senate after being elected 6 years ago in 2008. She was ahead for a long time in this race with former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown and Shaheen may well win this race but Brown closed the gap with Shaheen to within the margin of error. Polls suggest at least a race where the margin statewide when all of the votes are counted is in the range of single digits. We are not prepared to make a projection in the New Hampshire Senate election race as of yet.

That is another opportunity for a Republican Senate pick up in New Hampshire that most people agree has been thrown away by a poor campaign run by Scott Brown. Shaheen has lost an election before as you pointed out. She lost a Senate election in 2002 to John Sununu and came right back and won against Sununu 6 years later in 2008.

Citizens of the granite state are known for being independent and not being told what to do in terms of how they vote. Okay back in a moment.

He is better at winning the electoral college than Hillary Clinton. Colorado can be won much easier by the President of the United States than by Hillary Clinton. Barack Obama running for a third term hypothetically means he would spend time I think in Virginia and North Carolina and Florida and Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Back here at election central 2014 coverage when the polls closed at 7 o'clock EST six states closed their polls. Pete Shumlin the sitting Governor of Vermont will be going back there. This had been very much expected. He holds the state house in Vermont for the Democrats.

Pete Shumlin
Vermont Governor

Without a doubt this is the first real projection tonight in which Democrats can take some comfort. I am hearing from people on the ground in Virginia Democrats there expected the Senate race there to be decided earlier. We are just not ready to make a projection in that race. It is going to be about a 25 point victory in Vermont for Governor Shumlin. He is reelected there very comfortably.

Nikki Haley will be going back to the state house in South Carolina. She wins the governor race there defeating Vincent Shaheen.

Nikki Haley
South Carolina Governor

It is a pretty easy victory for the governor there. She defeats the same man over whom she won four years ago. The Georgia governor election between incumbent Republican Nathan Deal and the grandson of the 39th President of the United States Jason Carter.

Jason Carter vs Nathan Deal
Georgia Governor

Cobb county will play a big role in determining if Jason Carter can do what his grandfather did in 1970 and win the governorship.

I am told John Kasich has been reelected governor of Ohio over Ed Fitzgerald and the West Virginia Senate election shows a lead for Shelley Moore Capito. That would be Republican pick up potentially the first of the night but no declaration there yet despite the characterization of a Capito lead there.

John Kasich

Some Close Races Where Polls Have Closed; Some DeclarationsElection 2014. The long awaited returns at least since the day after the last election two years ago are going to be coming in over the course of the night. Republicans attempting to control the Senate and they are expected to control the House. There are some calls to make starting in the Senate. Lindsey Graham will be going back to the Senate in South Carolina & Tim Scott the junior Senator from South Carolina wins the special senate election there.

Lindsey Graham
South Carolina Senator (Seat A)

Tim Scott
South Carolina Senator (Seat B)

The Georgia Senate race is undecided at this hour between Democrat Michelle Nunn and David Perdue. Two famous names from both respective political parties in the state running to fill the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Saxby Chambliss.

That election may not be decided until December if neither candidate receives 50 percent of the vote statewide. If that were to happen a runoff would happen & the winner of that goes to the Senate.

And thus meaning the balance of power in the Senate may not be determined until mid December. Another possible situation like that is in Louisiana. Polls close there at 9 o'clock EST. The election race in Kentucky for Senate between Alison Lundergan Grimes and incumbent Republican Senator Mitch McConnell is undecided right now.

Michelle Nunn vs David Perdue
Georgia Senator

Alison Grimes vs Mitch McConnell
Kentucky Senator

The Lundergan family is closely associated with the Clinton family. Jerry Lundergan the father of the Democrat Senate nominee in Kentucky catered Chelsea Clinton's wedding. Bill Clinton may owe the Lundergan family a great deal. Bill Clinton carried Kentucky twice in the 1990s and the Lundergan family has a lot of connections in the statewide Democratic party.

It can be said that in 1992 the Bush/Quayle team knew that the election was virtually won by the Democrat ticket that being Clinton/Gore when Kentucky was declared for then Arkansas governor Bill Clinton.

Times have changed. We are not calling the race between Mark Warner and Ed Gillespie in Virginia at the top of this hour. There is not enough information to project a winner there. Warner was thought to be widely favored there.

The governor race a year ago tightened up there toward the end even through election day.

And the Democrat still won statewide.

Mark Warner vs Ed Gillespie
Virginia Senator

Lets pull up the map as it looks now after the two declarations made in terms of the Senate contests so far. Not a lot to put up. Two calls both in South Carolina for Republicans. The Republicans would need a net gain of 6 seats to control the upper chamber of congress in January. Democrats will try to stop them.
Democrat: 33        Republican: 32        51 for majority

Next; Another Election Race Between Parris Glendening & Garrison Porter. Will the former  Maryland governor win the presidency or will Garrison Porter win & by so much that he tops the 389 electoral college votes won in the previous election with Governor Glendening. Uncertain on running mates at the moment.

A big headline at this point is that Glendening leads. With half the country choosing a side the Maryland governor leads by 8 electoral college votes which is not a lot but enough to win if that trend continues.

Glendening: 164        Porter: 177        270 to win
Now Garrison Porter retakes the lead. Still an election race where neither candidate with 64% reporting is anywhere near 270. Some especially Democratic powerhouses are outstanding. Some of us were wondering if Garrison Porter was getting ready for a moment to concede this race. It does not appear like either candidate will be conceding the election race or declaring victory at the moment.

We will join some commentators now to comment on the election result thus far.

The West Coast is yet to come but an 8 point lead nationally & now being declared the President of the United States with at least 345 electoral college votes is a superb job by the Garrison Porter & Natalie Portman team. Parris Glendening is & was a high profile politician & a very popular one in his state of Maryland in the 1990s.

Won election to that office twice in 1994 & 1998. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend was his running mate & lieutenant governor.

Back to the panel.

l will say this where all of these election results going through against both Clintons & Alison Grimes & Alan Cranston & Mister Edwards & others & Parris Glendening the search is out for a pattern on the electoral map & a bellwether in these elections. He who wins what wins the election. Certainly if Garrison Porter takes 60%+ of the vote in New England or heading down before one hits say West Virginia & Northern Virginia that speaks well for the Republican in the popular vote. Sweeping Michigan & Wisconsin & Minnesota & Florida all four together makes a Democrat winning difficult. Another reader said in another thread about elections in general Michigan & Pennsylvania & Virginia are bellwethers. Its all pretty interesting.

Garrison Porter struggled to carry Wisconsin & New Mexico there for a while. Anything can happen & it may be he still may or may not carry those two states in a generic election.

Parris Glendening defeated Ellen Sauerbrey twice in Maryland statewide in the '90s. He said on election night 1998 that victory felt even better the 2nd time around. He will not be saying that tonight. Garrison Porter wins the presidential election.
