  1. Wow! Illinois chooses a Republican governor? Perhaps sanity has returned even to Obama’s home territory.

  2. North Carolina goes Republican – Thom Tillis defeats the DNC machine to oust Kay Hagan(D).

  3. With Iowa being called for Republicans, the Senate is in new hands. Let us all hope that these hands get the real work of the people done.

  4. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid, President Obama and the rest of the DNC leadership spent over $60million to achieve.. tonight. The unions, especially the teacher’s unions spent extensively and we learned one thing.. you can’t keep accomplishing nothing and spend your way out of it.

  5. North Carolina looks likely to be called for Tillis(R) any minute.

  6. IOWA: Ernst(R) now up 2, NC is looking GOP and we still have tons of results to review!

  7. Iowa or NC.. which one will be the sixth seat needed to send Harry Reid packing from the Leader position?

  8. IOWA: Ernst(R) closes to within 2 points of Braley(D) for U.S. Senate – wild ride man.. wild ride.

  9. If you haven’t noticed, we’re not bothering to report results from overly obvious things like Hawaii staying Democrat – well, I guess we kinda did there.

  10. 10:57 Iowa Joni Ernst making a strong push as more results come in. Things were looking dismal at first, but with single digits separating her from Braley.. things could get interesting!
