Welcome back, its 11 o'clock on the east coast and we have some more projections as the final polls close for the night.

First in Illinois, this might be  disappointment for democrats and an odem for republicans tonight. Illinois, in a surprise seeing the national trend, stays in the republican column and goes with Wilson. If the governor's goal is to at least get 100 electoral votes, this might help him. Illinois for Wilson tonight.


Augustus Wilson Wins Illinois

There are some calls for governor Marshall at this hour however.

In Nevada, another easy win for the President elect tonight. Marshall wins big in Nevada.


Thomas Marshall Wins Nevada

Also in Washington state, President elect Marshall adds Washington to the victory column tonight.

Thomas Marshall Wins Washington

Diddo in Oregon, Oregon for Marshall tonight.

Thomas Marshall Wins Oregon

In California, its undecided at this hour.

Okay so lets look at the electoral map after those projections.
Wilson: 98        Marshall: 405        266 needed to win

We have two more states to be projected tonight. Stay with us to see where they go. Back in a moment.

1914 Mid Term Election Coverage: Congressional Races
Good evening, this is election night 1914 coverage. This is the first ever mid term election in history. President Marshall is not on the ballot tonight, no tonight we are looking at determining the balance of power in the next congress. President Marshall helps the democrats or at least they like to think so, President Marshall has a 54% job approval rating coming into tonight. During the first year of his term, the economy was going down, but it has been rising and improving over the last year. He hopes to help democrats hold both houses of congress tonight and most polls expect them to do so.

It is 7 o'clock on the east coast and we have some senate projections. Lets look them over.

In Georgia, help me out here. We have a special senate election and a regular senate election. Both Georgia senate seats, at least according to our projections, will go to democrats tonight. Incumbent Hoke Smith, the democrat, wins easily in Georgia. Smith wins another term to the senate in Georgia.


M. Hoke Smith Wins Georgia Senate Election

We can also declare, that in the special senate election in Georgia. This was for an incumbent that unexpecdetaly retired, this was for his seat. We can project that democrat Thomas Hardwick will win to complete the rest of the retired senator's term. Hardwick wins his race in the special senate election in Georgia.

Thomas Hardwick Wins Georgia Special Senate Election

We can also declare that in Indiana, Ben Shively will win another term to the senate. This is a hold for the democrats.

Ben Shively Wins Indiana Senate Election

We have the same case in Kentucky, as in Georgia. A special election to succeed a retiring senator, Johnson Camden ran unopposed in that special senate election and he wins tonight. Also in Kentucky, J. C. W. Beckham wins the other senate race in Kentucky. Beckham wins in Kentucky.

Johnson Camden Jr. Wins Kentucky Special Senate Election

J.C.W. Beckham Wins Kentucky Senate Election


In South Carolina, this is a strong democratic state and it proves to be again. Ellison Smith, the incumbent, very easily wins reelection there. A hold for the democrats in South Carolina.

Ellison Smith Wins South Carolina Senate Election

However, in Vermont, a race there between incumbent republican Bill Dillingham and democratic challenger Bill Black. This race is undecided at this hour. Too close to call in Vermont.

Lets look at the senate projection map as of now and how the numbers look for the race to control the senate.


Republican: 27        Democrat: 41        49 needed for absolute majority

This is election night 1914. The first mid term congressional elections. We will keep an eye on these projections throughout the night. Were coming back. Stay with us.

First piece of good news for republicans tonight, incumbent republican Warren Harding in Ohio. He holds that seat for republicans. If not a candidate for President in 1916, he might sure persue it if he wants it in 1920 or 1924. Certainly a rising star in the republican party. Harding wins in Ohio. Thats the only projection we have at the 7:30 time mark.

Warren Harding Wins Ohio Senate Election
Republican: 28        Democrat: 41        49 needed for absolute majority

Not much to talk about there. Were coming back, stay with us.

Senate Map Begins to Fill Up: Democrats Close to Oficially Controlling the Next Senate.
Welcome back, its 8 o'clock on the east coast. We have some projections, lets go to them.

In Alabama, Oscar Underwood, the democrat, wins that race very easily tonight. Underwood succeeds retiring democratic senator Francis White. Underwood holds that seat for democrats in Alabama tonight.


Oscar Underwood Wins Alabama Senate Election

In Connecticut, a very close race between incumbent republican Frank Brandegee and democratic challenger Simeon Baldwin. As important as that state is in presidential campaigns, how will it go in this competetive senate race. We can't say yet, its undecided.

Lets go to Florida, Duncan Fletcher wins there again tonight. He ran unopposed and wins reelection tonight. We think we have some shocks with election night coverage sometimes, a real shock would be Fletcher loosing even though he ran unopposed.

...that joke fell flat...

anyway, no need to worry about that tonight. Duncan Fletcher, the democratic incumbent, ran unopposed and is returned to the senate tonight. Fletcher holds that seat for democrats.


Duncan Fletcher Wins Florida Senate Election

In Illinois, republican incumbent Lawrence Sherman led democratic challenger Roger Sullivan for a long time in this race, but it got close there towards the end. Will Sherman still pull it out and return to the senate? We can't say at this hour, its undecided.

Remember two years ago, even though Augustus King lost so badly to President Marshall, he still carried Illinois. That could be a little glimmer of hope for senator Sherman in his race for tonight.

In Illinois senate race, its undecided at this hour.

In Maryland, John Smith is returned to the senate. A hold for the democrats.


John Walker Smith Wins Maryland Senate Election

Bill Stone, democratic incumbent, been in the senate for twelve years and goes back for at least another six years. He wins a third term to the senate defeating republican challenger Tom Akins. Stone wins in Missouri.

Bill Stone Wins Missouri Senate Election

In New Hampshire, this would be an upset if it happens tonight. But, republican senate leader and the incumbent senator Jacob Gallinger is reportedly in a tough race with democratic challenger Raymond Stevens. Gallinger thought he was pulling away from Stevens in the final days of this campaign, but maybe not. That race is too close to call at this hour. Thats one people will be watching.

Gallinger has been in the senate for thirty years, and might not be returning. Thats a race we will be keeping a close eye on throughout the night. Undecided in the New Hampshire senate race at this hour.

Thomas Gore wins easily in Oklahoma. Senator Gore wins again in Oklahoma. A hold for the democrats.



Thomas Gore Wins Oklahoma Senate Election

Some bright news for republicans at this hour. Incumbent republican Boies Penrose wins in Pennsylvania, a hold for the republicans.

Boies Penrose Wins Pennsylvania Senate Election

And those are all of the senate calls that we have at this hour. Lets look at the senate map after those calls.

Republican: 29       Democrat: 44        49 needed for absolute majority

Lets come back to our election night 1914 coverage. An interesting night forming, stay with us.

Democrats Win Two More. Democrats Retain Control of the House of Representatives.
Welcome back to our election night 1914 mid term elections coverage. We can declare at the 8:30 time mark tonight that democrats will retain control of the house of representatives. They remain in control of the house in the next congress.

Democrats Retain Control of the House of Representatives

We can also make two more senate declarations at this hour.

First in North Carolina, incumbent democrat Lee Overman wins another term to the senate. Overman wins in North Carolina, holding that seat for democrats.


Lee Overman Wins North Carolina Senate Election

And in Arkansas, James Paul Clark, the democratic incumbent, wins another term to the senate there. A hold for the democrats in Arkansas.

Republican: 29        Democrat: 46        49 needed for absolute majority

Democrat Senate Strength Moves West. Democrats Keep United States Senate.
Welcome back, it is 9 o'clock on the east coast and we can say at the top of this hour, that democrats will retain control of the united states senate. Democrats have control of both chambers during the next congress. They seem poised to perhaps take as many as sixty senate seats tonight, but obviously that is still left up in the air. But, democrats do control the next senate as well as the already projected house.

Democrats Retain Control of the United States Senate

And now, to back that projection up, we have some more states with senate races where polls closed at the 9 o'clock hour. We obviously have some projections, lets look them over:

In Arizona, incumbent democrat Marcus Smith easily wins another term to the senate tonight. A strong showing by a prohibition party candidate there basically assured Smith's big win. Smith wins in Arizona, a hold for the democrats.


Marcus Smith Wins Arizona Senate Election

Good news in Arizona for democrats. In Colorado, it might turn out the same way. But, we don't know just yet. Incumbent democrat Charles Thomas is running for reelection against republican challenger Hubert Work. That race is undecided at this hour. Undecided in Colorado.

In Kansas, another undecided race, but one the democrats are keeping their hopes high for. Incumbent republican Joseph Bristow retired here. Its a race to replace him between republican Charles Curtis and democrat George Neeley. This is an opprotunity for democrats to pick up a usually safe republican seat. Will they? We don't know just yet, its undecided.

In Lousiana, democrat John Thornton retired here. However, democrat Robert Broussard ran unopposed to replace him. Broussard wins in Louisiana, holding that seat for democrats.


Robert Broussard Wins Louisiana Senate Election

In New York, its a race to replace retiring republican senator Elhu Root. In a race to repalce him, its republican James Wadsworth and democrat James Gerard. This race is undecided at this hour. This is one of those races that could help determine if democrats get sixty seats or not tonight. Undecided in New York.

In South Dakota, we can go ahead and declare that democrat Edwin Johnson will go on to defeat republican Charles Burke. Big news here, democrats pick up a senate seat in South Dakota with Johnson winning over Burke. Coe Crawford, the republican incumbent, retired there.

Edwin Johnson Wins South Dakota Senate Election

In Wisconsin, in a race to replace retiring republican senator Isaac Stephenson, its undecided between democrat Paul Husting and republican Francis McGovern. Its undecided in Vermont.

But in Vermont, perhaps some of the only good news for republicans at this hour. Incumbent republican Bill Dillingham wins another term to the senate from Vermont. A hold there for the republicans.



William Dillingham Wins Vermont Senate Election

Now lets look at the senate map after those projections are calculated in.
Republican: 30        Democrat: 49        49 needed for absolute majority

Well it looks at this hour to be a big night for democrats.

Yes they are easily retaining control of both houses of congress tonight. They are likely to increase their majorities in both houses. Theres not a lot of good news for republicans tonight, except to try to hold as many seats as they can.

Does President Marshall have anything to do with this result?

Well the White House would say that the incumbent President has solid approval ratings and he does. However, this is about the democratic party nationally which is very strong and probably good news for the President as he runs for reelection in two years.

Any surprises so far tonight?

No not really, everything going as expected.

Alright, lets come back with more election night 1914 coverage. Stay with us.

Welcome back, we have another declaration to tell you about. In the Wisconsin senate race, in that race we can now project that the democrat Paul Husting, Paul Husting will be winning that race tonight. This is another pick up for the democrats. Husting succeeds retiring republican Isaac Stephenson. Paul Husting will go to Washington as a united states senator, according to our projection.

Paul Husting Wins Wisconsin Senate Election
Republican: 30       Democrat: 50        49 needed for absolute majority

Republicans doing poorly just in the raw numbers for the balance of power in the congress, especially in the senate. But, the house is strongly in democratic control too.

There are still some outstanding races however that republicans could win. Polls are closing as we get to the 10 o'clock hour on the east coast and we will return with that right after this. Stay with us on election night 1914 coverage.

Make it Three for the Democrats: Neeley Wins in Kansas
Thats right, the headline at this moment. Its another democratic pick up in the united states senate. Neeley wins in Kansas...

George Neeley Wins Kansas Senate Election
Republican: 30        Democrat: 51        49 needed for absolute majority

Well it looks like another surprising loss for the republicans in the Kansas senate race.

Yes, and they might have been hurt there as the progressive party candidate did much better than expected, it what turned out to be a solid three way race, the democrat pulls ahead and wins according to our projections.

I bet republicans are really hanging their heads tonight.

Well, if the democrats only had fifty-one seats in the senate in the next congress, that would not be so bad for republicans. But, yeah its not looking very good for republicans at this hour.

We have some more polls closing as it is now 10 o'clock on the east coast.

First another close race, in Utah, its republican incumbent senator Reed Smoot running against democratic challenger James Moyle. That race is undecided at this hour. Also, in Idaho, another close race. Republican incumbent James Brady is running against democratic challenger James Hawley. That race is also undecided at this hour.

In Colorado, going back to some races that were undecided earlier. In Colorado, democratic incumbent Charles Thomas wins another term. Thomas will be going back for his first full term in the senate.


Charles Thomas Wins Colorado Senate Election

In Iowa, republican incumbent Alvin Cummins is running again against Maurice Connoly, the democratic challenger. That race is undecided at this hour.

In Illinois, however, an upset victory for democrats here. The challenger Roger Sullivan sends a republican incumbent packing, as Roger Sullivan, the democrat, defeats republican incumbent Lawerence Sherman. Sullivan wins in Illinois.


Roger Sullivan Wins Illinois Senate Election

One piece of good news for republicans right now. Asle Gronna, the republican incumbent, wins in North Dakota. Gronna wins in North Dakota.

Asle Gronna Wins North Dakota Senate Election

Republican: 31        Democrat: 53        49 needed for absolute majority

Doesn't look really good for republicans at this hour.

I think the numbers will start to curve out by the time the night is out. It might not be that bad.

11 o'clock on the east coast: Democrats Only Gain
Welcome back, this is election night 1914 coverage. It is 11 o'clock on the east coast and we have some more projections.

In California, James Phelan succeeds a retiring republican there. This is a pick up for the democrats.

James Phelan Wins California Senate Election

In Oregon, George Chamberlin, the incumbent democrat, easily wins there. Chamberlin wins in Oregon. A hold for the democrats there.

George Chamberlin Wins Oregon Senate Election

In Washington state, a little bit of good news for republicans here. Senator Wesley Jones wins reelection there. Jones returns to the senate, a hold for the republicans.


Wesley Jones Wins Washington Senate Election
Republican: 32        Democrat: 58        49 needed for absolute majority

Many of these outstanding senate races are just too close to call at this hour. Were watching the vote count from states that had their polls close as much as three hours ago, while more than ninety percent of the vote is in in many of these races, the results are just too close to call right now. Were coming back, maybe we can get some projections soon. Stay with us.

Welcome back and you will be happy to know, we have two senate races to call right now.

First in Utah, this another race that republicans thought they would win, its not to be. The challenger, James Moyle will win that race defeating republican incumbent senator Reed Smoot. Moyle beats Smoot in Utah, another win for the democrats and another pick up tonight.


James Moyle Wins Utah Senate Election

And in Iowa, a republican senator does survive here. Albert Cummins, the republican incumbent, will survive and win reelection to the senate tonight. Cummins wins in Iowa. A hold there for the republicans.

Albert Cummins Wins Iowa Senate Election
Republican: 33        Democrat: 59        49 needed for absolute majority

That 49 number needed, the democrats are long over that now.

Its a bad night for republicans obviously. Its an interesting political picture to paint for the country.

I mean its a democratic wash tonight. Get this, democrats may have a house majority as big as eighty to one hundred and five seats more than the number needed. When it comes to the senate, when it comes to the senate, republicans have won six senate contests tonight, but get this, democrats have won twenty two contests. Just a democratic sweep tonight.

It will be interesting to see who will survive however on the republican side, its interesting to see who is strong enough on the republican side to see who is strong enough on that side to survive.

These races are close, so close that the projections are coming in slowly. However, we can declare, and this might be a little bit of uplifting news for republicans. In the presidential belwhether of Connecticut, republicans hold a senate seat in Connecitcut. Frank Brandegee the republican incumbent survives and wins reelection. Brandegee wins in Connecticut, holding that seat for republicans.

Republican: 34        Democrat: 59        49 needed for absolute majority

Now in New Hampshire, a state that had their polls close hours ago. This will bring a smile to the faces of republicans, senate republican leader Jacob Gallinger, Gallinger wins narrowly in New Hampshire. Raymond Stevens, the democrat, ran a good race but in the end it fell just short. Gallinger returns to Washington and wins in New Hampshire.

Jacob Gallinger Wins New Hampshire Senate Election
Republican: 35        Democrat: 60        49 needed for absolute majority

President Marshall and vice President Parker announced that they would be candidates for reelection to a second term in 1916. Marshall went into the election with a 59% job approval rating. The ticket felt very strong and unstoppable going into election day.

On the republican side, senate republican leader Jacob Gallinger surprised many and decided to run for the republican nomination. Gallinger broke through a group of republican candidates and won the nomination. Gallinger selected runner up for the nomination Charles Evans Hughes as his running mate. The Gallinger/Hughes republican ticket spent the campaign trailing in the polls.

The final poll before election day looked like the following:

Thomas Marshall/Alton Parker: 49%

Jacob Gallinger/Charles Evan Hughes: 43%

Other: 3%

Undecided: 5%


President Marshall is strongly favored to win reelection. Election night coverage, likely to be another good night for democrats, begins next.
