Taking Stock – Part 2
Well, the Colorado Senate race has been called for Michael Bennett – Patty Murray is holding on to a narrow lead in Washington state as well. I had originally projected Ken Buck to win in CO, bringing my incorrect tally up to 2 (I had projected Angle over Reid in Nevada).
For Governorships, Minnesota, Illinois, and Connecticut are still outstanding. It looks as if the Democrats will win all three races – all have narrow edges currently. That means that I will have missed one state (Illinois), where I had projected Bill Brady to defeat incumbent Governor Pat Quinn.
Lastly, 426 of the 435 House races have been called, and looking back I missed 13 so far.
The current net GOP gain in the House is +61. I had originally projected +65, but of those 9 Democratic districts out there it looks like Republicans will pick up 3 or 4 of them… meaning a net +64 or +65 gain.
