In an age of unpredictable election outcomes Bruce finds himself reelected in 1908 against an opponent whose name escapes me at the moment.

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: 31        51 for majority

We'll be back with calls for governor. Election 2014 coverage coming right back.

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
Ohio Governor

Natalie Tennant vs Shelley Moore Capito
West Virginia 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.

Election Night 2014 8 o'clock EST: Crist Reelected Florida Governor; No Declaration In New Hampshire Senate

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

Democrat: 11        Republican: 13        26 for majority

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

Election 2014 coverage continues after this.

Welcome back to our election coverage where we have some calls at the top now of the 9 o'clock hour EST. The first is for Andrew Cuomo.

Andrew Cuomo
New York Governor

Andrew Cuomo has been reelected tonight as the governor of the empire state. He led by about 25 points in the polls around the time of the primary in the state in September. He retained much that same lead. Actually a few percentage points better than that since the primary. He is reelected very easily returning to the state house. We are calling Clay Pell the winner in the Rhode Island governorship election.

Clay Pell
Rhode Island Governor

Greg Abbot
Texas Governor

Greg Abbot is the governor elect of the state of Texas. He will have a big job come January and we are calling Mike Rounds the Senator elect from South Dakota.

Mike Rounds
South Dakota Senator

Some other calls include the one for Mark Dayton. That was thought to be a closer race but Democrats pull away and send Mark Dayton back to the Minnesota governorship for four more years.

Mark Dayton
Minnesota Governor
Republican Pickup A Senate Seat: Rounds Wins SD; Cuomo Reelected In NY & Greg Abbot Is Governor Elect Of Texas
At this hour we are calling Shelley Moore Capito the winner in the West Virginia Senate race. She defeats Natalie Tennant statewide there. That's Republican pickup number two in the balance of power in the senate so far tonight.

Shelley Moore Capito
West Virginia Senator

Al Franken will be going back to Washington. He is reelected to a 2nd term as Senator from Minnesota. A hold for the Democrats.

Al Franken
Minnesota Senator

In Kentucky big call. Mitch McConnell is reelected to a 6th term in the United States Senate. He defeats Alison Grimes in Kentucky.

Mitch McConnell
Kentucky Senator

Some Democrats will be really happy about that. Or not. Tom Udall is the winner in New Mexico the incumbent Senator and John Cornyn will remain the senior Senator from Texas. He is reelected first elected in 2002.

Tom Udall
New Mexico Senator

John Cornyn
Texas Senator
Democrat: 41        Republican: 40        Independent: 2        51 for majority

Well panel the Republicans have a net gain of a couple of seats right now as regards to the balance of power in the Senate. They take a net gain of 2 seats. Those being West Virginia and South Dakota. Mitch McConnell stays on in the United States Senate.

Its a record set by Mitch McConnell that few have matched. He if the returns hold up now has won 6 straight Senate elections in Kentucky. Adding to his list of defeated opponents is a former incumbent senator and a now current governor of Kentucky and the Secretary of State in Kentucky Alison Grimes and some businessmen from the state. Its an impressive tenure.

Assuming Mitch McConnell completes this term to which he has now been reelected he will have been in the Senate for 36 years. I am told that Mike Enzi has been reelected Senator from Wyoming.


Mike Enzi
Wyoming Senator

And some governors Susanna Martinez wins another term in New Mexico and Matthew Mead is the winner in Wyoming.

Susanna Martinez
New Mexico

Michael Mead
Wyoming Governor

At first glance I am tempted to say it is a Republican night. Depending on what angle one looks at the returns so far one person or another may see it differently. It may be a surprise to some people that we have projected Republicans to hold the Senate seat in Kansas I'm sorry Kentucky and there are no declarations in the Kansas and Mississippi Senate elections.

We are going to a break. Election 2014 coverage returns in a moment.

Other states have closed their polls right now.
McConnell Wins Kentucky & Republicans Net Gain In Senate Balance Of Power Brian Sandoval is reelected very easily governor Nevada. Scott Brown this is a new call and hang onto your hat. Put a new cup of coffee on. We'll be here for a while still. Scott Brown is the winner in New Hampshire Senate. That was unexpected for much of the campaign. Brown returns to the Senate representing New Hampshire.

Brian Sandoval
Nevada Governor

Scott Brown
New Hampshire Senator

The incumbent Republican Dennis Daugaard is the winner in the South Dakota Governor election. He goes back to the statehouse there.

Dennis Daugaard
South Dakota Governor

Two other calls for the Senate and both for Republicans. Steve Daines is the new Senator elect from Montana and James Lankford wins the special senate election in Oklahoma. No upset in Montana or Oklahoma tonight.

Steve Daines
Montana Senator

James Lankford
Oklahoma Senator (Seat B)

No but the upset call came in New Hampshire. The victory now projected here of Scott Brown of that Senate election in the granite state will surprise a lot of people.

It means that it may not be Kentucky and New Hampshire that the Senate majority comes down to but the balance of power in the upper chamber of congress.

Hang on we have a projection.


Republican
House Control

The Republicans will control the House of Representatives meaning they will have more seats than the Democrats in the next congress. Continue please.

I was saying that the balance of power in the Senate may come down to if Thad Cochran and Pat Roberts can win their Senate elections in Mississippi and Kansas.

Two veteran incumbents in the Republican Senate caucus. They have been there for a long time.

They had trouble in their respective primaries against tea party candidates and if Mitch McConnell becomes majority leader of senate or remains minority leader of that body may come down to if Senators Cochran and Roberts can hang on and win their election contests tonight. It may be voters in the respective states just picked the Senators over their tea party opponents in the primaries but are willing to vote Cochran and Roberts out and take Democrats instead.

Yeah

Democrat: 14        Republican: 21        26 for majority
That's the governor map as it stands right now. The Republicans far ahead of the Democrats in the contest for which party has a larger number of governorships.

Such a happening is to be expected. These are Republican states. Jason Carter loosing in Georgia and Dan Malloy not being reelected in Connecticut are signs that Republicans have a pretty good hold on the governorships tonight.

The Carter people in Georgia had to be disappointed in that projection. Jason Carter really thought he had a chance there tonight. Florida earlier in the evening was a big call. The last time a Democrat won a Florida Governor election was 1994. Lawton Chiles defeated Jeb Bush. From January 1999 through to next January Republicans have held the Florida state house. I am told we have a projection in one of the two Senate elections that are the Kansas and Mississippi contests.


Thad Cochran
Mississippi Senator

Thad Cochran going back to Washington.

Wow

He will be the Senator from Mississippi for another 6 years. First elected in 1978. That's a hold important to Republicans at this hour. And headed now to New Jersey.


Cory Booker
New Jersey Senator

New Hampshire will not repeat itself in New Jersey tonight. Democrats there are grateful for that.

Hahahahaha

In a closer race than expected incumbent Senator Cory Booker will defeat Republican Jeff Bell.

Democrat: 42        Republican: 45        Independent: 2        51 for majority

Well there is no question who Mitch McConnell will caucus with in the Senate.

There is not that much continuity between Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell. No its an impressive win by Mitch McConnell. He has a long career and winning a 6th Kentucky Senate election statewide there is a thing for which he earns himself a place in history.

He must be one Senator who has some of the lowest approval ratings that wins reelection and he has given no indication of going anywhere. We can expect and probably be right in expecting he will run for reelection again in 2020.

Kentucky Democrats have a big bench and they will no doubt find someone to run against him. That Senate map right now shows Democrats with a guaranteed 42 seats for the next two years there and Republicans with 45 and Independents with 2. States in yellow the polls have closed but we have no declaration and the darker shade of green are where the polls are still open and people are voting.

Now its really down to some of the closer Senate elections and pick up opportunities. Democrats only need to win 7 more Senate contests tonight to claim control of the upper chamber of congress. The two independents caucus with Democrats. 7 more state contests won for Democrats in the bid for Senate control and Harry Reid will have 49 Democrats in the caucus and the 2 independents push Democrats right up and over 51 seats.

I'll be interested to see what the Brown win in New Hampshire means for some of these Senate contests that are outstanding.

It means nothing right now. Brown wins New Hampshire and Pryor won in Arkansas earlier in the evening. Most of the competitive races are left in the South.

Election 2014 coverage continues after this. Thanks panel.

election '14 coverage
Blogging: Mitch McConnell defeats Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky Senate election. While Grimes takes 55000 vote margin in Jeff county KY McConnell sees blowout win in Western Kentucky. Jeanne Shahean becomes first incumbent Democrat Senator to loose reelection in election 2014. She looses in upset to former United State Senator Scott Brown. Martinez wins Governor reelection in New Mexico. That one will leave people talking. She has flirted with a presidential bid in 2016. Thad Cochran defeated Travis Childers in Mississippi to go back to the Senate. He (Cochran) will take the oath of office in January for his 7th term. He came to the Senate 6 years before Mitch McConnell. Georgia and Louisiana Senate elections may go to runoff meaning the Senate Balance of Power may not be known until mid December. Runoff happens in those two states if neither candidate takes 50% of the vote statewide. No declaration in either Georgia or Louisiana. Michelle Nunn versus David Perdue in Georgia and Mary Landrieu versus David Cassidy in Louisiana. Greg Abbot holds Texas Governor mansion replacing retitring governor there Rick Perry. Who controls the Senate in the next congress is still to be seen.

There are some governor races still outstanding. The polls have just closed on the West Coast meaning the only state with a governor and senate election where the polls are still open is Alaska. Jerry Brown will be going back to the California governors mansion for a 4th term. He served as governor from 1975 until 1983 and he was reelected again almost 30 years later in 2010. He now wins a fourth term.

The winner in the Oregon governor election is John Kitzhaber. That election was close in Oregon. Kitzhaber has like Brown been governor for a long time. John Kitzhaber has held the office and left and come back a couple of times. It looks like right now at minimum a win in the upper single digits for Kitzhaber.

A projection was thought to be coming for Asa Hutchinson as the winner in the Arkansas governor election but that race is still undecided. This is the Republican South. Hutchinson is probably one of the least popular historically in the Arkansas Republican Party. However the demographics are only shifting more to the Republicans in the South. There is a call in Arizona. Doug Ducey will be the winner in the Arizona Governor Election. He is the Republican. Ducey now Governor elect Doug Ducey is the winner against Democrat Fred DuVal. He succeeds Jan Brewer. Doug Ducey does into the office of Arizona governor. Anthony Brown will go to the Maryland Governor Mansion. It would have been historic had his Republican opponent won statewide today and tonight. That Republican would have been only the second Republican Maryland Governor since Spirow Agnew. The other being Bob Erlich who was governor from 2003 to 2007.

Agnew was the last Republican governor of Maryland to be reelected to that statewide office.

There is a call to make in Wisconsin. Democrats will perk up at this. They did not have any reason to be down anyway. This election result will be a surprise to some. Mary Burke is the next governor of Wisconsin. Burke defeats Walker in Wisconsin. There are no other of those election races outstanding to project at this moment. Election 2014 coverage continues after this.
Scott Walker is sent into at least what is temporary retirement from public life. Mary Burke is the next governor of Wisconsin. Anthony Brown does what he was expected to do & holds the Maryland governorship for Democrats. Looking for a Hutchinson projection in Arkansas but no call there right now.Mary Burke
Wisconsin Governor
