Fox News is calling Kentucky for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) and saying Virginia's race, held by Sen. Mark Warner (D), is too close to call. Republicans, as expect, will hold the two South Carolina senate seats.

If Virginia is even close, this will be a very bad night for Democrats.

I hold to my Senate prediction (Republican gain of 10 seats).

CNN is saying exit polls show Mark Warner up 3 points. Just a month ago that race was a 20-point lead for Warner.

Probably the most important single Senate race is between Mark Udall (Colorado) and Cory Gardner.

I assume Udall will win, but I wouldn't put anything past this stupid country.

Exit polls showing David Perdue (R) up 49-48 over Michelle Nunn (D) in Georgia. If nobody gets 50% there, there will be a runoff in January.

I think the chances are very much in the GOP's favor to retake the senate.

The Virginia race is proof enough of that. The Dems best shot is for Orman to win Kansas, to hold New Hampshire and NC, somehow hold Alaska, and hope LA and GA go into a runoff. It's not looking good.

I hope LA, GA, and NC go into a runoff.

I don't think Scott Brown will win NH.

Nothing would make me happier than to hear that Mitch McConnell lost the election. It won't happen, but at least I can fantasize about the dumbfounded reaction on his stupid turtle face.

NC doesn't have a runoff - I wish we did, though. The fact either Senator is going to win with a minority of the vote offends me.

I don't think Scott Brown will win NH.

I think he has a better shot than Hagan, honestly. NH is very, very swingy. If the popular vote is a big margin, they are likely to follow.

That awkward moment when you first thought midterm meant exams during a semester...

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

West Virginia called for Republican Shelley Moore Capito. First female senator in WV history as well as first Republican senator there since the 1950s.

Fox saying NH is too close to call. Republicans win as expected in Mississippi, Tennessee, Maine, Alabama, and Oklahoma.

Arkansas called for Republican Tom Cotton. Incumbent Senator Mark Pryor (D) loses - third GOP gain of the night. Halfway to a majority for the Republicans.

Mike Rounds (R) wins in South Dakota. Three seats down, three to go for Republicans.

Greg Abbott (R) called to beat Wendy Davis (D) going away. Utter mismatch from the beginning.

I feel like pollsters just suck at polling virginia. Last year their gubernatorial race was way closer than the polling predicted as well and it seems like the senate race this year is headed that way too

As soon as the celebratory raves stop, which means never.

In the Senate, +3 (Arkansas, South Dakota, West Virginia).
