Election Night in DC – between 8-9pm EST

At 8pm sharp, polls closed Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey*, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Tennessee. This is a big stretch, and it doesn’t include the swings of North Carolina, Florida (EST), or Ohio.

At 8:05, news networks began calling more states:

  • Romney wins Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, West Virginia, Alabama
  • Obama wins Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Rhode Island, Deleware, Maryland, and DC

None of these are surprising. Still, no calls in OH, NC, PA, FL or VA.

8:15: Still no news in FL/OH/VA/NC, though polls are leaning in Romney’s favor in all but Ohio. If Ohio goes to Obama, it is very tough to envision a Romney victory.

Seeing losses in FL and CT for GOP Senate seat hopefuls, but those aren’t huge shockers. I would say I’m shocked to see Mack lose badly in FL, but who knows. This election is so weird.

8:45: Arkansas goes Romney via CNN, though not a surprise. Lots of calls coming in the next post…
