    Should figure a game to play along with the Senate results. Can't figure whether to take a shot when a blue seat goes red, or Red seat goes blue.

    Wish us luck Tom, I don't feel good about tonight.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Yea, I know but, watching the polls on specific issues for both candidates is making me more optimistic.

    Good luck and may a bit of sanity return to the US.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    CBS is reporting a possible upset in the Senate race in Mississippi - first black senator since reconstruction (and a Democrat) overthrowing the incumbent Republican.

    As goes Miami... Will be very interesting to see if Beto can hold out as the last Texan votes come in.

    Georgia is a surprise so far, though Atlanta isn't reporting much yet. Still, so far a GOP blowout.

    Why is that a surprise?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Because the polling was a lot closer. May be less surprising when Atlanta is counted.

    Tennessee seems to have voted a Democratic Senator out and a Republican in.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Beto and Cruz are tied at 49% each with just 24,000 votes between them.

    Hours were extended at several locations in Atlanta area because of problems. One or more location is still open.

    Not surprised but disappointed as respects Bredesen. I'll take solace if Beto wins but as much as I wished to win the Senate, I never felt that was a real possibility.
    There were too many Democratic incumbents at risk. Mitt's back. One wonders what that means. Toady or his own man? Probably toady.

    Bredesen is a sensible guy. Just a shame.

    This is just too rich: “Georgia Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp received a voter card that said “invalid” when he tried to vote on Election Day.”

    Looks like the House may go blue, while the Senate stays red. Not the gains some had hoped for blues though.

    I just saw this - Mitt Romney won in Utah. Will he follow Trump? I didn't like him, but I've had more respect for him than that.

    Things are mostly going as I expected, but this one I thought the Republicans would win.

    Which would have been awful.

    Yes, it is, Steven, it is quite likely that they will regain the lower chamber. That, in the words of Joe Biden, is a big fu**ing deal.

    I presume a stuff up, but if he's not entitled to vote, is he entitled to stand? and to sit if he wins?
