NOTE: When a race is called, the final results are automatically listed (rather than the numbers at the time.)

Election Night 2012
7:00 PM, Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Hello, and welcome to our 2012 Election Night coverage on Fox News.  I'm Bret Baier, and with me tonight is Brit Hume, Megyn Kelly, and Chris Wallace.   Throughout the night we'll be analyzing the results and making calls as the results come in.  We'll also be bringing you exit polls, where Martha MacCalllum is on hand.  After nearly two years of campaigning, it all comes down to this.  This has been a long, exciting, and very close election campaign, and after tonight, either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney will be celebrating victory.  Right now, it is 7 PM on the east coast, and the polls have closed in the first few states at this hour, and we can already make some calls.  Our first call is in the state of Kentucky.  The polls in parts of the state have already been closed for an hour, and the polls in the rest of the state are closing right now, and we project that Mitt Romney will be the winner in the state of Kentucky with its 8 electoral votes.


Kentucky (Final Results)
Romney- 60%
Obama- 38%
Others- 2%

In Indiana, where parts of that state have also been closed for an hour, the polls are just closing in the rest of the state.  President Obama narrowly carried it four years ago, and it was widely expeced to go to Governor Romney tonight, but as of now, that state is too close to call.  

Indiana (10% in)
Romney- 61%
Obama- 38%
Others- 1%

There's also a very close and hotly contested Senate race in Indiana tonight.  Republican State Treausrer Richard Mourdock, who defeated incumbent Senator Dick Lugar in the Republican primary, is challenging Democratic Congressman Joe Donnelly.  That race is also too close to call at this time.  

Indiana Senate (10% in)
Mourdock- 58%
Donnelly- 41%
Others- 1%

In the governor's race in Indiana, Republican Congressman Mike Pence is challenging Democrat John Gregg.  That race is also too close to call.

Indiana Governor(10% in)
Pence- 59%
Gregg- 39%
Others- 2%

We also now project Mitt Romney to be the winner in the state of Georgia.  The Obama campaign was hoping for a long-shot opportunity to carry the state, but it looked unlikely, and Mitt Romney does, in fact, carry the state.

Georgia (Final Results)
Romney- 55%
Obama- 44%
Others- 1%

In South Carolina, Fox News projects that Mitt Romney is the winner of the presidential contest there.  No big surprises here, folks, this was one state that was considered to be safely in Romney's column.  

South Carolina (Final Results)
Romney- 57%
Obama- 42%
Others- 1%

Fox News also projects President Obama the winner in the state of Vermont.  Again, not a surprise.

Vermont (Final Results)
Obama- 63%
Romney- 34%
Others- 3%

Also in the state of Vermont, Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin will be reelected.  This was conisdered safe for Democrats as well.

Vermont Governor (Final Results)
Shumlin- 69%
Brock- 28%
Others- 3%

In the Senate race in Vermont, Independent Bernie Sanders will be going back for another term.
Sanders- 71%
MacGovern- 29%

And finally, in the state of Virginia, the first major swing state to close tonight, it is too close to call.  This state is absolutely crucial for Mitt Romney to win if he wants to get to 270 tonight.

Virginia (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 62%
Obama- 37%
Others- 1%

In the Senate race, former Republican Senator George Allen is running for his old seat against former Governor Tim Kaine.  That race is too close to call at this time.

Viriginia Senate (Scattering Returns)
Allen- 63%
Kaine- 35%
Others- 2%

So now, let's take a look at our electoral map right now.  So far, Romney has 33 electoral votes, and Obama has 3.


Romney- 33
Obama- 3

7:30 PM

It is now 7:30 PM, and polls have just closed in three more states.  The big prize of these states: Ohio.  Generally considered a bellwether in presidential elections, no Republican has ever won the presidency without it.  Naturally, this state was hotly contested by both campaigns, and right now, it is too close to call.

Ohio (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 60%
Obama- 39%
Others- 1%

In the Senate race, incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown is facing Republican Josh Mandel.  That race is also too close to call.

Ohio Senate (Scattering Returns)
Mandel- 57%
Brown- 42%
Others- 1%

We now can call the state of West Virginia for Mitt Romney.  This was really no surprise either; President Obama is very unpopular here and had alienated much of the region with his perceived hostility to coal mining.

West Virginia (Final Results)
Romney- 59%
Obama- 38%
Others- 3%

In the Senate race, incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Manchin is running for a full term against his 2010 rival, Republican John Raese.  If you recall, Manchin was first elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Senator Robert Byrd, and he has been one of the few Democrats that has been openly critical of the Obama Administration, That race is too close to call.

West Virginia Senate (Scattering Returns)
Raese- 55%
Manchin- 45%
Others- 0%

In the governor's race, another rematch from last year's special election.  Democrat incumbent Earl Ray Tomblin is running against businessman Bill Maloney.  That race is also too close to call.

West Virginia Governor (Scattering Returns)
Maloney- 56%
Tomblin- 44%
Others- 0%

In the state of North Carolina, another important battleground state, the presidential contest is too close to call.  

North Carolina (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 61%
Obama- 37%
Others- 2%

And in the Governor's race, the former Republican mayor of Charlotte, Pat McCrory, is running against Democrat Walter Dalton to replace outgoing Democratic governor Bev Perdue.  That race is too close to call at this time as well.  You know, it would be interesting if McCrory won that since Charlotte is where the Democrats held their convention in September.

North Carolina Governor (Scattering Returns)
McCrory- 63%
Dalton- 36%
Others- 2%

So here again is our map.  Romney now has 38 electoral votes to the President's 3.

Romney- 38
Obama- 3

And here is the balance in the Senate.  Republicans need to have a net gain of four seats to win back the Senate from Democrats.  So far, there has been no change tonight, since we have only called one race, in Vermont, and that one has gone to the incumbent, Bernie Sanders.

Senate
Democrats- 51
Republicans- 47
Independents- 2

In the balance of Governors tonight, there is no change yet, since one race, also in Vermont, has also been called for the incumbent, Peter Shumlin.

Great so far! I hope Rease does not win in WV. He lives by me, not my cousins in West Virginia. For hells sake, I have mutual friends with his daughter Tongue

The early returns are very favorable to Romney, but things change....I look forward for the rest of this Smiley

8:00 PM

It is now 8:00 PM Eastern Time, and we can call several more states at this hour.  Fox News projects that Mitt Romney is the winner in the state of Alabama

Alabama (Final Results)
Romney- 64%
Obama- 35%
Others- 1%

We can also call the state of Connecticut for President Obama.

Connecticut (Final Results)
Obama- 57%
Romney- 41%
Others- 2%

In Delaware, Joe Biden's home state, we project that President Obama is the winner.


Delaware (Final Results)
Obama- 56%
Romney- 42%
Others- 2%

The District of Columbia will also go to President Obama tonight.

District of Columbia
Obama- 90%
Romney- 8%
Others- 8%

In the state of Florida, the other big prize of the night, we project that that race is too close to call.

Florida (8% in)
Romney- 57%
Obama-42%
Others- 1%

In Illinois, the President's home state, we project that he will win once again.

Illinois (Final Results)
Obama- 57%
Romney- 42%
Others- 1%

In Maine, President Obama is the winner of three electoral votes.  Maine has four electoral votes, but two are awarded based on the winner in each Congressional district.  We will only call three of those electoral votes for the President right now.  The Romney campaign had been hoping for a long-shot victory here, but that is not to be.

Maine [At-Large] (Final Results)
Obama-55%
Romney- 44%
Others- 1%

Maine [ME-1] (Final Results)
Obama- 59%
Romney- 40%
Others- 2%

Maine [ME-2] (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 53%
Obama- 46%
Others- 1%

President Obama is also the winner in the state of Maryland.

Maryland (Final Results)
Obama- 58%
Romney- 40%
Others- 2%

In the state of Massachusetts, we now project that President Obama will be the victor.  That means that if Mitt Romney were to win tonight, he would be the first candidate since Woodrow Wilson in 1916 to lose in his home state.

Massachusetts (Final Results)
Obama- 60%
Romney- 39%
Others- 1%

In Mississippi, Mitt Romney is our projected winner tonight.  

Mississippi (Final Results)
Romney- 59%
Obama- 40%
Others- 1%

In Missouri, it is too close to call.

Missouri (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 61%
Obama- 38%
Others- 1%

And in the Missouri governor's race, it is also too close to call.

Missouri Governor (Scattering Returns)
Spence- 61%
Nixon- 38%
Others- 1%

In the state of New Hampshire, another critical swing state, it is too close to call.

New Hampshire
Romney- 54%
Obama- 45%
Others- 1%

In New Jersey, we project that President Obama is the winner.

New Jersey (Final Results)
Obama- 55%
Romney- 29%
Others- 1%

We also can call the state of Oklahome for Mitt Romney at this time.  This was one of the states thought to be safe in his column, and it is tonight.

Oklahoma (Final Results)
Romney- 69%
Obama- 29%
Others- 1%

Pennsylvania is also too close to call at this time.  This state had been leaning toward President Obama in the polls, but is still a swing state and an outstanding question in the campaign.

Pennsylvania (Scattering Returns)
Romney- 58%
Obama- 41%
Others- 1%

And last but not least, we can call the state of Tennessee for Governor Mitt Romney.

Tennessee (Final Results)
Romney- 58%
Obama- 40%
Others- 2%

We now can project several Senate and governors' races.  In the state of Connecticut, the Senate race between Republican Linda McMahon is too close to call, but in the state of Delaware, we project that Democrat Senator Tom Carper will be reelected.

Connecticut Senate (Scattering Returns)
McMahon- 56%
Murphy- 42%
Others- 2%

Delaware Senate (Final Results)
Carper- 65%
Wade- 35%
Others- 0%

We also project in Delaware that Democratic Governor Jack Markell will win reelection.  This was one race that was never in doubt.

Delaware Governor (Final Results)
Markell- 69%
Cragg- 31%
Others- 0%

In the Florida Senate race, incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson is in a tough fight with Republican Congressman Connie Mack.  That race is too close to call.

Florida Senate (9% in)
Mack- 55%
Nelson- 43%
Others- 2%

In the Maine Senate race, we will project that former Independent Governor Angus King will win, replacing outgoing Republican Olympia Snowe.  This is an important win for Democrats because King will likely caucus them, which essentially makes this a Democratic pickup.  

Maine Senate (Final Results)
King- 65%
Summers- 25%
Dill - 10%
Others- 0%

In Maryland, we project that Democratic Senator Ben Cardin will be reelected.

Maryland Senate (Final Results)
Cardin- 65%
Bongino- 34%
Ohthers- 1%

In Massachusetts, the only other Republican-held seat that is really in doubt tonight, Republican Senator Scott Brown is trying to fend off a challenge from Democrat Elizabeth Warren.  That race is too close to call right now.

Massachusetts Senate (Scattering Returns)
Brown- 56%
Warren- 43%
Others- 1%

In the state of Mississippi, incumbent Republican Roger Wicker will be reelected to the Senate.

Mississippi Senate (Final Results)
Wicker- 62%
Gore- 36%
Others- 2%

In Missouri, the Senate race between Republican Congressman Todd Akin and incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill is too close to call.  Congressman Akin caused a controversy earlier in the campaign about "legitimate rape" and abortion.  

Missouri Senate (Scattering Returns)
Akin- 63%
McCaskill- 35%
Others- 2%

In New Hampshire, the governor's race is a close contest between Republican Ovide Lamontagne and Democrat Maggie Hassan.  That race is too close to call at this time.

New Hampshire Governor
Lamontagne- 57%
Hassan- 42%
Others- 1%

In New Jersey, incument Democratic Senator Bob Menendez will be reelected.

New Jersey Senate (Final Results)
Menendez- 57%
Kyrillos- 41%
Others- 2%

In Pennsylvania, Democratic Senator Bob Casey will be reelected.

Pennsylvania Senate (Final Results)
Casey- 61%
Smith- 38%
Others- 1%

In the state of Tennessee, we project that Republican Senator Bob Corker will be reelected to his seat.

Tennessee Senate (Final Results)
Corker- 63%
Clayton- 35%
Others- 1%

So now, let's take another look at our map.  The President now has 74 electoral votes, and Governor Romney has 71.


Obama- 74
Romney- 71

We now will look at our Senate and Governor leaderboards.  So far, there has been only one pickup, for the Independent Angus King in Maine.  That's essentially a Democratic gain though, as King will likely caucus with Democrats on Captiol Hill.  So far, there are no pickups in governors for either party tonight.

Democrats- 51
Republicans 46
Independents- 3

Net Change: I +1

It is.  Thanks for the heads up; I corrected that along with another mistake I made earlier; Pat McCrory is a former mayor of Charlotte.  And I just realize that I forgot to give early returns on the Indiana governor race; I've also corrected that.

About 8:20 PM

We now have another important call to make.  Fox News projects that Mitt Romney will be the winner in the state of Indiana.

Indiana (Final Results)
Romney- 57%
Obama- 42%
Others- 1%

So now, here is the electoral map as it stands.  Mitt Romney has 82 electoral votes, and the President has 74.



Romney-82
Obama- 74


8:30 PM

We now have one more poll closing, and one more call to go along with it.  Fox News calls Arkansas for Governor Mitt Romney.

Arkansas (Final Results)
Romney-59%
Obama- 40%
Others- 1%

That adds six electoral votes to the Governor's total, bringing him to 88 electoral votes, with President Obama trailing close behind with 74 electoral votes.



Romney- 88
Obama- 74

UPDATES:

Indiana Senate (35% in)
Mourdock- 54%
Donnelly- 45%
Others- 1%

Indiana Governor (36% in)
Pence- 57%
Gregg- 42%
Others- 1%

Virginia (24% in)
Romney- 56%
Obama- 42%
Others- 2%

Virginia Senate (23% in)
Allen- 57%
Kaine- 41%
Others- 2%

Wallace: We now go to Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod, who is with the President right now at the White House.  David, what is the mood of the crowd here?

Axelrod: Well, Chris, we're cautiously optimistic about the returns we're seeing right now.  They may favor Governor Romney right now, but it's still early, and we believe that once all is said and done, voters will decide to stick with us and keep moving forward instead of returning to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place.  We're especially excited to see that not only has Governor Romney lost in his home state, but it looks like he will lose there by a wide margin, and that is one of the main things that is keeping us hopeful for victory tonight.

Wallace: Thank you.  That was David Axelrod, with the Obama campaign.

Awesome so far, though I'm not so sure King is as certain to caucus democrat as everybody seems to think.  Especially if Mitt is elected.

9:00 PM (Continued)

We also have some Senate races on the line with these new closings.  First, in the state of Arizona, where Republican Jeff Flake is challenging Democrat Richard Carmona, it is too close to call.

Arizona Senate (Scattering Returns)
Flake- 63%
Carmona- 35%
Others- 2%

In the state of Michigan, where incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow is fighting a challenge from former Republican Congressman Pete Hoekstra, that race is also too close to call.

Michigan Senate (10% in)
Hoekstra- 56%
Stabenow- 43%
Others- 1%

In Minnesota, we project that incumbent Democrat Amy Klobuchar will be reelected to the Senate.

Minnesota Senate (Final Results)

Awesome so far, though I'm not so sure King is as certain to caucus democrat as everybody seems to think.  Especially if Mitt is elected.

In this climate, I don't see how he wouldn't caucus with the Democrats.

In this climate, I don't see how he wouldn't caucus with the Democrats.

He claims he's undecided on who to caucus with, and if the unlikely GOP-wank scenario happens with 59 GOP senators, they'd be willing to give a good amount of nice committee seats to put them over the top (same if Obama's re-elected and the senate is 50-49 favoring the GOP, or if Romney is elected and the GOP has 49 seats) to put themselves over the top.  Also, both were very nonpartisan governors (Mitt in MA, with a 75% Democratic legislature, and King with maybe a handful of Indy legislators)
