Key Senate Races
Democratic seats: 54
Republican seats: 40
Independent seats: 2
Pickups: Colorado, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Virginia
Update 10: All four Better Democrats in the Senate are down to the wire. Crazy.
Update 9: Oregon back to undecided. And what's up with Alaska? Two Republican shocks seem imminent in what is otherwise a heavy Democratic night. Seems fishy. In Minnesota, Franken leads by 2,300 votes. In Georgia, it could be a recount to secure the run-off.
Update 8: Merkley wins Oregon: A little belated, but Oregon's premier political analyst has called the race for Merkley.
Update 7: Franken takes the lead: Franken now leads by 1,350 votes or so. Still, get ready for a recount.
Update 6: Minnesota margin now 1,465 votes: Get ready for a recount in Minnesota.
Update 5: Franken within less than 200 votes: Huge nailbiter in Minnesota. Too bad there is no run-off.
Update 4: Alaska in play? No word on which counties have reported, but Stevens is winning in Alaska with 37% reporting. This could be the shocker of the night, after Obama winning Indiana.
Update 3: Merkley will win: While the networks haven't called it yet, Merkley is going to win. The red counties have all reported. The remaining vote is from Eugene and Portland. Game over.
Update 2: Hagan wins North Carolina!: Make that six Senate pickups for Democrats.
Update 1: Shaeen wins New Hampshire: Mark a fifth pickup down for Democrats.
