November 4, 2014

Settle in and watch the returns roll in...

... here.

Who needs TV? TV is just for company. But you can find company here, where we can talk to each other.

UPDATE 1: McConnell has already won, according to CNN, where everyone is talking freakily fast.

UPDATE 2: It's all about Ed.

UPDATE 3:  Looks like I've lost my pick-an-upset bet, and Meade is going to win. (I bet Scott Brown, and Meade picked Thom Tillis.) As for Scott Walker, the prime concern here in Wisconsin, it looks like he's well ahead, but how much of the Madison and Milwaukee votes are in?

UPDATE 4: Ed is slipping.

UPDATE 5: One more GOP pickup needed now to take the Senate, Cory Gardner having won Colorado.

UPDATE 6: The race is called in Wisconsin. "It's over. We will stand with Governor Walker," says Meade.



UPDATE 7: We got in the car and drove up to the Capitol to check out whether there were any protests or celebrations. All was calm. We drove around the square, and I had to restrain Meade, who wanted to do the "This is what democracy looks like" horn beeping.

UPDATE 8: The view of the Capitol just now. [PHOTO MOVED TO THE NEW POST, ABOVE.]

UPDATE 9: The GOP gubernatorial candidate won in Illinois. And it looks like Tillis did win in North Carolina.

UPDATE 10: Joni!

UPDATE 11: Scott Brown finally concedes at midnight. So I lost the pick-an-upset bet, and Meade won. Still not clear if Meade wins the bet on Scott Walker, who must win with at least 53%.

UPDATE 12: Let's call it a wave.

They don't seem confident in Dem wins so there's more of a recognition of the reality in his comments. Ed Schultz is already fretting about the Florida governor's race.

I also checked in on CNN and Wolf Blitzer is trying his hardest to add suspense to the results.

There was a line of people waiting to register today at my polling place. Never seen that before. Also the person who has the same name I do and who never votes and whose ballot I am always being offered has voted this time.

Predicting 2016 when 2014 isn’t over is risky. But it looks like President Obama has left his party in worse shape than any president since Woodrow Wilson nearly a century ago.

It took only 6 years. He should never have been re-elected in 2012.

There was a young couple in front of me when I voted. Said they were registered in another town, and had just moved to my town. We have same day registration, so they held up the line. When they were done, they drove out of town in the direction of the town they said were previously registered in. hmm. I'm sure it was nothing but my antennae twitched a bit.

Looks like West Virginia has already been called for the Republicans as a Pick Up.

Not sure how they can call that so soon.

Kelly said...

2000 ruined me forever. I can't watch election results now without great anxiety. They tried to redo it in 2004, but the margin of victory for Bush was just to great. They'll now attempt it for every single republican victory and if they can't get the desired results in a recount, they'll check the trunk of a democrats car for extra ballots.

Kelly,

If they can't get the desired result in a recount, they'll recount again. Just like they did here in Washington State.

The person with my name who never votes but who voted this time appeared to have spelled her name wrong. I made a mighty effort and said nothing

David said...

The war on women proceeds apace as West Virginia elects a female Republican senator.

Here in South Carolina, the bigoted white Republican majority has reelected a female governor from an ethnic minority (Indian-American.) Also elected was the first black senator from a former Confederate state since Reconstruction. He is a Republican, Tim Scott.

Scott was an incumbent, having been appointed to fill Jim DeMint's unexpired term. Scott had previously been elected to the House of Representatives in a white majority district.

To get the Republican nomination for his house seat, Scott had to win a two stage primary. He defeated both Carol Campbell III (son of a former Republican governor) and Paul Thurmond (son of Strom Thurmond.)

The lefty narrative is looking a little shaky in South Carolina.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe Wisconsin hasn't reported anything yet.

I'm anxious for Scott Walker.

So are the car trunks no doubt.

There are said to be hundreds of vans cruising the streets in Milwaukee County picking people up and taking them to the polls. They say that the van people will soon start knocking on doors and telling people who haven't voted that they haven't voted and to get in the van and be driven to the polling place.

James said...

Still another hour before polls close in Wisconsin.

Dems are beginning to sweat over the preliminary results from VA and GA. Although the WI governor's race isn't getting much national media attention I'm hopefully that the rising Republican tide lifts Walker.

I Have Misplaced My Pants said...

I voted R on the statewide candidates and liberal on the ballot measures. But these are Massachusetts Rs; they would be Ds in most states.

Every single one of the local candidates is a D running unopposed. But the fact is, my locality is very well run, so I'm not complaining.

Gillespie was supposed to lose by a landslide. Yet, he's making a run of it (For the record, I don't think he'll pull it off).

On the other hand, Scott Brown was supposed to be in a close race, but it's not looking so close.

I am going to work "stick a fork in my vagina" into some kinda campaign slogan and/or party celebration. Without declaring a war on women. Might have to diagram the sentence first. Do the kids still diagram sentences?

Geeze, it wasn't until I developed this burning curiosity over Walker's fate in WI that I realized how deeply I want some different faces with different approaches in the next presidential election.

It's a measure of how disgusted I am with the political dynasty. I don't want a Clinton and I don't want a Bush.

Not that WI should be voting for anything but its own best choice for its own governor. But still I hope.

It's not a big Republican wave. Generally the Dems are holding the seats they were expected to hold. As much as anything, this is an election where there a lot of seats at stake where Republicans have a natural advantage. Where they lack that advantage, they are not winning. But they are doing well were they do have the advantage.

Republicans may still take the Senate, but the election two years from now will be a lot tougher.

MadisonMan said...

Let's hear it for Menomonie County -- first in WI to report 100% of its votes. (Of course, that's just 800 or so voters).

It presumably depends on the carpetbagger. Hillary Clinton was elected Senator from New York without ever having lived there.

I think a Bush candidacy is something Democratic campaign managers have wet dreams about.

I know die-hard Republicans who flat-out reject the idea of electing a third Bush to the White House.

Just to give you an idea - in the last election 2012 almost exactly 50% of the people living in Milwaukee city voted - 288,000 out of 588,000. Only a fraction of that number of votes - about 14,000 - have been reported so far in 2014. And since the city is showing Walker ahead - it is the Walker votes that are being reported.
