Alright, one more post before I conk out for good.
As far as the House goes, what exactly did we win last night? Well, let's start by checking in with what we lost:
FL-16 (Tim Mahoney)
KS-02 (Nancy Boyda)
LA-06 (Don Cazayoux)
TX-22 (Nick Lampson)
And what did we pick up? Here's what we know for sure -- 2123 24 seats, by my best count:
AL-02 (Bobby Bright)
AZ-01 (Ann Kirkpatrick)
CO-04 (Betsy Markey)
CT-04 (Jim Himes)
FL-08 (Alan Grayson)
FL-24 (Suzanne Kosmas)
ID-01 (Walt Minnick)
IL-11 (Debbie Halvorson)
MD-01 (Frank Kratovil)
MI-07 (Mark Schauer)
MI-09 (Gary Peters)
NC-08 (Larry Kissell)
NJ-03 (John Adler)
NM-01 (Martin Heinrich)
NM-02 (Harry Teague)
NV-03 (Dina Titus)
NY-13 (Mike McMahon)
NY-25 (Dan Maffei)
NY-29 (Eric Massa)
OH-01 (Steve Driehaus)
OH-16 (John Boccieri)
PA-03 (Kathy Dahlkemper)
VA-02 (Glenn Nye)
VA-11 (Gerry Connolly)
And what's still up for grabs? We're currently sitting on leads in the following districts:
ID-01 (Walt Minnick): With 90% of precincts reporting at the time of this writing, Minnick leads GOP Rep. Bill "Brain Fade" Sali by 4300 votes. Some of the outstanding precincts should add to Sali's total (but not all), so this race is still way too close to call. UPDATE: 95% of precincts are now in, and Minnick is up by 4363 votes. The remaining votes are from Bonner County (where Minnick is leading by 54-46) and Canyon County, a more populous area where Sali is leading by 54-46. Bonner has reported 52% of its vote, while Canyon only has 11% more to go. Looks like Minnick may just pull this off. (LATER UPDATE: Walt Minnick, you magnificent bastard, you did it!)
MD-01 (Frank Kratovil): With 100% reporting, Kratovil leads Club For Growth stooge Andy Harris by nearly 1000 votes. No one's making a call here yet, but I'd be surprised if there are enough outstanding votes floating around that would tip the outcome here.
VA-05 (Tom Perriello): In what could be the biggest shocker of the night, Democrat Tom Perriello is leading GOP Rep. Virgil Goode by over 1657 votes with only one precinct outstanding according to the VA SBoE. (LATE UPDATE: The VA SBoE now says the Goode is ahead by six votes.)
What else has yet to be called?
CA-04 (Charlie Brown): With 100% of precincts in, carpetbagging blockhead Tom McClintock is leading Charlie Brown by 451 votes. It seems pretty cruel, but it looks like Brown might not get a chance to kick that football, after all.
CA-50 (Nick Leibham): With 63% of precincts reporting, GOP Rep. Brian Bilbray leads Democrat Nick Leibham by 50-46 here. (Update: Bilbray wins.)
LA-02 (Bill Jefferson): Democratic crumb-bum Bill Jefferson will face a December general election against Republican Anh Cao.
LA-04 (Paul Carmouche): Democrat Paul Carmouche won the Democratic primary runoff here, and will face Republican physician John Fleming in the December general election. This one could be a chance to avenge Don Cazayoux.
NJ-03 (John Adler): This race was actually called for Adler by CNN earlier in the night (after an extremely bleak start) and Adler declared victory, but now CNN has moved it back into the too close to call column. Myers leads by about 1700 votes with 93% of precincts reporting. (LATE UPDATE: Adler wins.)
OH-15 (Mary Jo Kilroy): CNN and the AP have moved this race back into the undecided column.
SC-01 (Linda Ketner): GOP Rep. Henry Brown is currently leading Democrat Linda Ketner by 53-47 here, and CNN has called this race for Brown. But 26% of precincts are outstanding, and they're all in Charleston County, where Ketner is leading Brown by a 59-41 margin. The Ketner campaign is not yet conceding, believing that they still have a chance at eeking out a win here, based in part on 35,000 absentee ballots from Charleston that have yet to be counted. (Update: The bad guys win big.)
WA-08 (Darcy Burner): With 39% of precincts reporting, Darcy leads Reichert by a mere 60 votes here.
