Good Evening! Below the fold is an Associated Press chart of calls in progress.
4:25pm PT: AP has called it for Leahy, Coats, Paul, and DeMint. No surprises yet.
4:40pm PT: Portman not a surprising hold for Republicans, but it was called for him. Kasich’s inability to get a call yet just underscores his polling collapse in recent weeks.
More updates below the fold.
5:30pm PT: Back from the bank and in for the night. No Senate surprises yet: Ayotte, Mikulski, Coons, Shelby, Rubio. Lynch in NH the first Governor called. No House calls in the Black Belt.
5:40pm PT: Boozman, Isakson, Burr in the Senate. Haslam (TN), Beebe (AR) for Governor. Still waiting on a surprise. I don’t think the 62 R-23 D trend in the House per AP will last though.
5:45pm PT: Coburn, Blumenthal in the Senate. Still no upsets.
6:05pm PT: It’s the hour, so time for some more snap calls. Hoeven for Senate.
6:10pm PT: Moran, Thune, Gillibrand, Schumer for Senate. Why did AP call Hoeven before Thune? Weird. Daugaard (SD), Brownback (KS), Cuomo (NY), for Governor.
6:20pm PT: AP calls it for Manchin for Senate. Just 3 more and the Democrats keep the Senate.
6:30pm PT: A bunch more AP calls for Governor: Heineman (NE), Snyder (MI), Bentley (AL), Perry (TX).
6:40pm PT: Ehrlich: the wrong candidate in the right year. AP calls MD for Governor O’Malley.
6:45pm PT: Fallin to be the next governor of Oklahoma, says AP.
7:05pm PT: Vitter re-elected in Louisiana. AP House calls at a lopsided 120-69 split right now.

7:55pm PT Haley (SC) for Governor.
8:05pm PT Crapo wins easily. CO looking surprisingly good for Bennet, possible first surprise. Quinn also up in Illinois shockingly. PA so very close for Senate.

8:55pm PT Toomey ekes one out.

9:10pm PT AP calls it for Inouye, which gives the Senate to the Democrats. Governor Brewer (AZ) wins re-election.
