Hello Iím Wolf Blitzer and itís 7PM on the East 4PM on the West but we are calling the first states.....
In Kentucky we are projecting that Bush is the winner in Kentucky, in Indiana we are projecting that Bush is the winner, we are also projecting the state of Georgia for Bush this actually becomes the seventh win ever for the gop in Georgia, we are also projecting the state of Vermont for John Kerry.

Right now the now bush has 34 electoral votes and Kerry has 3.

For the battle of control of the US SENATE we are projecting....
That the GOP will pick up Georgia in the US Senate by defeating congreewoman Denise Majette,so the gopís candidate Johnny Isakson will become the next senator from the state of Georgia....
In Indiana Evan Bayh will win re-election in landslide.....
In South Carolina itís to early to call but governor Mark Sanford is leading....
In Vermont Patrick Leahy has won re-election....
and in the possibility the most closely watched senate race this year incumbent Jim Bunning is fighting for his senate seat against Daniel Mongiardo this race could go either way.

Okay we are now projecting the state of Virginia for President Bush with 10% reporting we are calling this very conservative but trending democrat state for Bush.

Bush now has 47 electoral votes while Kerry has 3.

For gubernatorial races we have two big projections....

In Vermont incumbent governor Jim Douglas will win re-election.....
And in the state of Indiana we can project with 36% reporting that Mitch Daniels has defeated incumbent Joe Kernan.

Bush is also the winner in the state of North Carolina and itís 15 electoral votes

The electoral count is now at 75 for Bush and 3 for Kerry.....

While for gubernatorial races we are projecting.....

That Joe Manchin is the winner of West Virginia and that he will become the next governor.....

And in North Carolina Mike Easley will be re-elected...

For senate races....

to close to call in Kentucky
We are still at 42% in not able to call Kentucky...

And in North Carolina itís to early to call but Congressman Richard Burr is leading....

Hi and welcome back Iím joined by Larry King...

So Larry judging off of how the night is going any surprises?

Well Wolf Iím looking at the map and I know the true battlegrounds like Florida-Pennsylvania-Wisconsin-New Mexico-Iowa havenít closed yet but right now itís going has originally thought it would go,the south at this point is about as republican as New England is democrat I mean everyone knew aside from Florida that Kerry wasnít going to win any southern states,this race was always going to be won or lost out west in Oregon-Nevada-New Mexico-Colorado or in the rust belt Iowa-Wisconsin-Michigan-Minnesota-Ohio-Pennsylvania and possibly New Jersey those states are what is going to decide this, so Larry seeing how the map is breaking down who do you think will come out on top?
Well because Bush is the incumbent and since 9/11 is still fresh in everyoneís minds Iím going to say Bush in the 290s-310s. Well Larry thanks for sharing your views.

Well itís almost 8PM and that will be the largest poll closing of the night. Stay tuned we will be right back.

And? You might as well say the Secretary of State's office is proof WA is secretly solidly Republican. Non-executive state offices frequently avoid overall political trends for obvious reasons. Rossi only did as well as he did because the dot-com bubble crashed- he would be constantly clashing with a Democratic legislature and face both the extreme unpopularity of Bush in WA and the 2007-2008 economic crash.

If thatís the case why did he outrun McCain by over 6 points?

Your missing the point. He still lost even though Gregoire wasn't exactly popular.

Well here it here is the gubernatorial results
https://mobile.twitter.com/disneyfan2001/status/946590895188557824
NOTE Oregon is on there cause I canít find gubernatorial map for 2012 so I have to use 2016

Okay so in the pick ups

In Indiana Mitch Daniels has defeated Incumbent Governor Joe E. Kernan in a 54-45 margin...
In Missouri Matt Blunt has defeated Clarie Mccaskill in a 52-46 margin...
In Montana Brian Schweitzer has defeated Bob Brown in a 49.5-48.1 margin and that is also the only democrat pick up...















DINO ROSSI APPEARS TO HAVE WON THE GOVERNORSHIP

In WASHINGTON DINO ROSSI APPEARS TO HAVE DEFEATED CHRISTINE GREGOIRE BY A MARGIN OF 352 VOTES! It is a stunning a upset because he has been down most of the campaign but in the last week he tied the race and this is where we are now.

In other races....

In New Hampshire Craig Benson has won re-election beating John Lynch in a 50.2-49.1 margin, John Lynch said he is looking at possibly running again for governor in 2006.

And finally in the House of Representatives the GOP gained net of 7 seats.

Overall the GOP has 236 house seats-58 senate seats- and 30 governorships.
