We have another projection in the state of Nevada, Huckabee wins Nevada.

Mike Huckabee Wins Nevada
Huckabee: 288        Warner: 250        270 needed to win

Just a few moments ago, in Richmond, Virgnia, Mark Warner conceeded the election to govenor Huckabee. He thanked his supporters and wished govenor Huckabee well. Govenor Huckabee is expected to speak in Little Rock in the next few minutes.

Look, if you have a poll, you should abide by its results. There's a plurality for "You need to stop."
So stop please.

Polls don't vote. And anyway, Huckabee had a four point lead. That reflected in him winning in places such as Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire easily, Nevada, and New Mexico. He won Wisconsin early in the evening as well as Iowa. His four point lead was reflected in his popular vote margins in certain states compared to his electoral votes.

The senate elections, well there were some headline races.

In North Carolina, senator Elizabeth Dole lost in an upset to North Carolina democrat Kay Hagan. Dole ran an average campaign. An ad, the "Godless American" ad that she ran at the end, probably cost her. It was a close race, and Dole lost by a little less than a point. In January 2009, it will be the first time since the 1950s that a Dole or a Bush are not in Washington.

In Georgia, a one time long shot democrat Jim Martin defeated incumben republican senator Saxy Chambliss. Chambliss had only been in the senate for one term and was defeated in his bid for a second term in the United States senate. As was noted earlier, Chambliss ran some ads in his 2002 campaign that were so negative that other prominent republicans called on him to apologize. Martin beat Chambliss by a surprising eight percentage points.

In Kentucky, incumbent republican senator and senate majority leader Mitch McConnell defeated Bruce Lunsford in a close race to win another term in Washington. McConnell sometimes has mixed approval ratings and Lunsford ran a good capaign. McConnell was fighting for his political life and in the end won a ticket to have atleast thirty years in Washington. He has already been there twenty-four years and won another six. Its a big deal, thirty years or five terms is not something that every senator that wants it gets. First elected in 1984.

In New Mexico, senator Peter Domenci lost his bid for reelection to Tom Udall. This was something compared to the 1992 north carolina senate election. Where Terry Sanford was an incumbent democrat running for reelection but had heart surgery in the middle of the fall campign, it was too little too late and he lost his bid for reelection. Here, Domenici was rumored to have frontotemporal lobar degeneration. That didn't help him and he lost his bid for reelection.

Jeanne Shaheen, who defeated John Sununu in 2002, won again in New Hampshire tonight. A hold for the democrats. Other long time democrats won again including: Dick Durbin in Illinois, Jay Rockefeller in West Virgnia, and John  Kerry in Massachussetts among others. Some other long time republicans survived including: John Warner in Virgnia, John Cornyn in Texas, Jeff Sessions in Alabama, and Susan Collins in Maine among others.

Let me make a little bit of a clarification on the 2000 Virgnia senate result in this timeline. Chuck Robb beat George Allen while George W Bush carried Virgnia over Al Gore. Robb won that 2000 race in about the same way that Reid won the 2010 race in real life.

2010 Mid Term Elections

With President Huckabee going into the mid term elections with a fifty-five percent job approval rating at this point, republicans are looking for continued success in the mid term elections. In 2008, democrats saw their most successful senate election results since 1998 or 2000. They are trying to close the gap in the senate, maybe enough to retake control. They are forced to take it one election at a time, at least thats the way it seems for now.

However, with a conservative republican president elected in 2008, there is a rise of other conservative candidates in the united states senate races. Democrats are trying to close the gap in the balance of senatorial power, however, could the republicans get back to their sixty seat super majority in the senate? It is possible.

Some of the senate matchups are listed below:

Illinois Senate: Mark Kirk vs incumbent Barack Obama

Nevada Senate: Sharron Angle vs incumbent Harry Reid

Florida senate: Charlie Crist vs Marco Rubio

California Senate: Carly Fliorina vs incumbent Barabra Boxer

Washington Senate: Christine Gregorie vs incumbent George Nethercutt

Wisconsin Senate: Barbara Lawton vs incumbent Tim Michels

Arkansas Senate: John Boozman vs incumbent Blanche Lincoln

Indiana Senate: Dan Quayle vs Brad Ellsworth

Ohio Senate: Rob Portman vs Lee Fisher

Those are some of the headline senate matchups. Some notes, there are some retirements in the united states senate. In Ohio, George Voinovich, a republican, is retiring. Marvin Scott, one term republican senator in Indiana, is retiring. Yes, that was not a mistake, former vice president Dan Quayle is retiring to politics in a race for his old senate seat. He is sixtieth years old.

In Nevada, Harry Reid, senate minority leader, faces a stiff challenge from tea party republican Sharron Angle. Angle leads by seven in the polls. But, Reid is trying to survive with a very good get out the vote effort in Las Vegas among other parts of Nevada. Reid has survived tough campaigns like this in his career, can he do it again? Reid was first elected to the senate in 1986.

In Wisconsin, incumbent republican Tim Michels beat senator Russ Feingold in 2004 by less than five thousand votes statewide. He was carried through by Bush's comfortable reelection. He is leading in the polls in his quest for a second term over former democratic lieutenant governor Barbara Lawton.

In Washington state, George Nethercutt won by a few percentage points over former democratic incumbent senator Patty Murray in the 2004 elections. He was also carried through by the Bush coat tails. Nethercutt however trails his democratic challenger Christine Gregorie by a few percentage points in the polls.

In the Florida senate race, Mel Martinez, the one term republican, is retiring. In a race to replace him, republican rising star Marco Rubio is in a dead heat with former republican turned democratic governor of Florida Chalie Crist. Crist leads by one point, but very much within the margin of error.

We are ready to go for election night 2010. It is 7 o'clock on the east coast and I'm not sure if we have any projections. In the senate:

Pat Leahy Wins Vermont Senate Election

Johnny Issakson Wins Georgia Senate Election

Jim DeMint Wins South Carolina Senate Election



Republican: 36        Democrat: 34        51 needed for absolute majority

No real surprises in that column. Leahy is a long time democratic senator, and DeMint and Isakson were expected to win easily. All three have won easily. Quayle leads in the senate election in Indiana and Paul leads in Kentucky. However, we may be ready to make an Indiana projection shortly. However, lets go to the governors desk:

Peter Shumlin Wins  Vermont Gubernatorial Election



Yes, only one projection at this hour in the governors elections. This might be where the republican's good luck with the congressional and gubernatorial elections may start to run out. Democrats are expected to do well in the gubernatorial elections. The democratic candidates lead in both Florida and South Carolina. Georgia is a dead heat.

We have another projection at the senate desk. Dan Quayle returns to Washington:

Dan Quayle Wins Indiana Senate Election

Republican: 37        Democrat: 34        51 needed for absolute majority

And a look at the governors map. Not much to see there yet:

Democrats have picked up that state house from outgoing indpendent governor Bernie Sanders in Vermont. Florida and South Carolina are some major state houses up in the air where democrats could pick up state houses. Its a big deal because republicans have held the Florida state house for the last twelve years. Not since Lawton Chiles in the 1990s has there been a democratic governor of Florida.

South Carolina, a strong republican state at the presidential level. Of course President Huckabee is not on the ballot tonight, but South Carolina usually is a big republican state for the presidency. Tonight, it would be a major pick up if the democrats could win the state house there too.

A possible projection in Florida coming up. Stay with us

A major projection in the Florida gubernatorial election. For the first time in twelve years, democrats will control the Florida state house. Sink beats Scott and the democrats are back in the Florida governors mansion:

Alex Sink Wins Florida Gubernatorial Election


A call in the Ohio senatorial election:

Rob Portman Wins Ohio Senate Election

Republicans: 38        Democrat: 34        51 needed for absolute majority

Democrats are riding high at this moment. Ted Strikland leads John Kasich in Ohio as of now for the governors race there.

The Senate Results:

Republican: 57        Democrat: 43        51 needed for absolute majority

The Gubernatorial Results:

The House Results:


Republican: 224        Democrat: 211        218 needed for absolute majority

Its clear, the republicans luck with congressional and gubernatorial elections drops drastically. The senate was probably the best place for the republicans. They held Colorado narrowly, as well as places like Ohio, Kentucky, and North Carolina. These were all seen as possible democratic pickups. Repubicans beat senate minority leader Harry Reid, as well as Mark Kirk beating Barack Obama in Illinois, and John Boozman beating Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas.

The democrats had some pickups too: Joe Sestak beats Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Christine Gregorie beats incumbent George Nethercutt in Washington state, and Charlie Crist, as a democrat, beats Marco Rubio, a republican, by a few percentage points in Florida. Its better that the balance of power in the senate stays the same  than republicans picking up seats. Its better for democrats that way as they look ahead to 2012 and 2014 elections.

In the house, the control looks in reach for democrats in the 2012 election perhaps. Republicans drop to only a seven seat majority there, and in the gubernatorial elections, democrats make great gains especially in the south. Some republican gubernatorial candidates survive by the skin on their teeth.
