Connecticut Governor's Race Still Undecided | Main | Christine O'Donnell: Yeah, Republican Disunity Was To Blame For My Defeat
November 04, 2010

Show's Not Over Yet!

The oh so fun Connecticut race isn't the only one that has yet to be decided. A partial roundup of the races that are too close to call:

--In North Carolina, Bob "The Washington Strangler" Etheridge is talking recount and is mumbling something about election irregularities without offering evidence. Here's the funny thing, though. After the state "refined" the votes, Ellmer's lead fell by 453, which conveniently puts the margin separating them into automatic recount territory. I'm not saying there's funny business going on, but it's just so...oh, I don't know...interesting that ballots found after an initial vote always seem to benefit the Democrat. Just saying, you know?

--In NY-25, the GOP candidate has just taken the lead.

--The Senate races in Alaska and Washington state are going to be multi-day (or week) count-a-thons. I'm a little nervous for Rossi, since that state's Democratic party has a history of finding ballots in close races.

--New York residents still don't know which party will control the State Senate. And they may not know for weeks.

--And finally, what would a close election post be without a nod to Minnesota? The governor's race there is headed for a recount. I don't know about the rest of you, but I look forward to the strange and interesting places they'll find "lost" votes this time!

--Dave in Texas points out another close race. Republican Blake Farenthold holds a 799-vote lead over incumbent Democrat Solomon Ortiz. Ortiz, like Etheridge, is talking up "discrepancies" in the vote. Man, it's really strange how the Democrats didn't make much noise about those "discrepancies" in 2006 and 2008.

Oh, well. Those must have been much cleaner elections or something. That's all.

But Wait, There's More! - Republican David Harmer is behind Democrat Jerry McNerny in CA-11 by only 121 votes, with absentees and provisionals yet to be counted.
