7pm ET Polls close in GA,IN,KY,SC,and VT.
Republicans are projected to win GA(Isakson-R),IN(Coats-R),KY(Paul-R),SC(DeMint-R)= 27R
Democrats are projected to win VT(Leahy-D)=41D.
7:30pm ET Polls close in OH and WV.
Republicans are projected to win OH(Portman-R). 28R.
WV-(Firewall state-for DEMS and REPS)-if Manchin-D wins. Dems keep control of the US Senate. If Manchin-D lose it will be a long time.

Republicans are projected to win AL,FL,MO,NH,OK,and PA. 33R.
Democrats are projected to win CT,DE,MD,=44D.
If Dems are unsucessful in WV-then IL is the second must win state for DEM. if Dems win either WV and IL or both.- they keep the Senate if Dems lose both. It will be a long night.
8:30pm ET (AR and NC)
Republicans are projected to win AR and NC. 35R.
9:00pm ET (AZ,CO,KS,LA,NY,SD,WI).
Republicans are projected to win AZ,KS,LA,SD,and WI. 40R.
Democrats are projected to win both NY seats. 46D.
If Dems lose WV and IL- then CO is going to be a must win state for DEMS. if DEMs with either or all (WV,IL,and CO)- Dems keep control of the US Senate. If Republicans win all 3 of WV,IL,and CO- It will be a long night.
10:00pm ET(IA,NV,ND,and UT).
Republicans are projected to win IA,ND,and UT. 43R
If Democrats lose WV,IL,and CO, then NV is going to be a must win state for DEMs. If DEMs win either one or all 4 of those states. DEMS keep control of the US Senate. If Republicans win all 4 states(WV,IL,CO,and NV). It will be a long night.
11:00pm ET(CA,HI,ID,OR,and WA).
Democrats are projected to win CA,HI,and OR.
49D.
Republicans are projected to win ID. 44R.
If Democrats lose WV,IL,CO,and NV then WA is a must win state for DEMs. If DEMS win either or all of WV,IL,CO,NV,and WA- Democrats keep control of the US Senate. If Republicans win WV,IL,CO,NV,and WA.
All eyes are then pointed to AK.
If Republicans win WV,IL,CO,NV,WA and AK. Republicans regain control of the US Senate.
If Republicans win WV,IL,CO,NV,WA but say if Democrats surprisingly win AK. Democrats keep the US Senate- Senate Democratic Leaders ie Chuck Schumer or Dick Durbin should send Sarah Palin flowers. She gave us DE in the silver platter-giving us the Witch. and AK- Had Murkowski not been challenged in the GOP primary. AK would remain in the GOP collumn.

The Freshman US Senate Class is going to be
AR(John Boozman-R)
CT(Richard Blumenthal-D)
DE(Chris Coons-D)
FL(Marco Rubio-R)
IL(either Alexi Giannoulias-D or Mark Kirk-R)
If Alexi were to lose by a narrow margin-will he have a future in electoral politics in IL- perhaps running for Governor or US Senator in 2014,2016,or 2018.
IN(Dan Coats-R)-does he get back his Seniority.
KS(Jerry Moran-R)
KY(Rand Paul-R)
MO(Roy Blunt-R)
NH(Kelly Ayotte-R)
ND(John Hoeven-R)
OH(Rob Portman-R)
PA(Pat Toomey-R)
UT(Mike Lee-R)
WV(Joe Manchin-D or John Raese-R)-WV is a state-we need to watch tonight if Manchin-D loses-it is a 94 style GOP wave.
WI(Ron Johnson-R)-It is sad to say-Russ is going to lose.
Democratic incumbents in CO,NV,and WA are in the tossup column. WA is likely to remain Democratic. CO and NV will go either way. Bennet if he lose will have a future in electoral politics in CO.
Reid-NV should appear on the TV Show the Defenders.
