Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 9:56 PM PT: Great pickup for Dems in TX-23: Pete Gallego beats Republican Quico Canseco.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 9:57 PM PT: WA-01 called for Democrat Suzan DelBene, who holds ex-Rep. Jay Inslee's seat against Republican John Koster.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 9:58 PM PT: NE-02 called for GOP Rep. Lee Terry. He beats Democrat John Ewing by fewer than 4 points.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:00 PM PT: NY-18: Dem Sean Maloney still up 51.7-48.3 with 96.7% reporting.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:04 PM PT: NH-01 has been called for Dem ex-Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, who is narrowly beating GOP Rep. Frank Guinta. Welcome back, CSP.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:07 PM PT: In FL-18, Democrat Patrick Murphy's lead over GOP Rep. Allen west is holding steady at 974 votes with 97.4% reporting. We might need to send a lot of lawyers, guns, and money down there if this goes to a recount.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:09 PM PT: Fuckin' huge! NY-18 has been called for Democrat Sean Maloney, who unseats GOP Rep. Nan Hayworth. We had this at Lean R, so I consider this a big (and awesome) upset.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:11 PM PT: HAHAHAHAHAH! Guess who is coming back to the 113th Congress? Dem Rep. John Tierney! Never been happier to be wrong about a race rating (we had it at Lean R) in my life.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:18 PM PT: NV-04, a brand-new seat, called for Dem Steven Horsford, who beats Republican Danny Tarkanian. We can now officially call Tarkanian a perennial candidate.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:24 PM PT: I guess the DCCC is going to regret ignoring this race (and hey, we moved it off our big board to Safe R a while back, so we were off, too), but even though GOP Rep. Tom Reed has won, he's only up 51-49 over Nate Shinagawa with almost all the vote counted.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:28 PM PT: There will be a lot of Heck in the next Congress: GOP Rep. Joe Heck of NV-03 has held off Democrat John Oceguera. He'll join Dem Rep.-elect Denny Heck of WA-10.
Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:31 PM PT: The situation in FL-18 is pretty crazy. NBC, standing alone among media outlets, has called the race for Dem Patrick Murphy. The Florida Democratic Party has also emailed a statement congratulating Murphy on his victory. But I wouldn't put this one in the bank just yet, since it doesn't appear that either Murphy or West are making any statements of their own.
