Cheat Sheets: Senate | Gov | House | Ballot Measures

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:37 PM PT (jeffmd): CNN has just called CO-06 in suburban Denver for incumbent Republican Mike Coffman, who defeats Joe Miklosi.

This is what's left:
Senate Races: Montana, North Dakota, Nevada
Gubernatorial Races: Montana, Washington
House Races: A slew of races in Arizona and California. In addition, MI-01, MI-11, MN-06, MN-08, MT-AL, and UT-04. We're also waiting on confirmation in FL-18 and NC-07 where both Dems appear to have a narrow lead.
Ballot initiatives: Notably, we're still waiting to hear on the two Minnesota amendments, the Michigan Emergency Manager law, Marriage Equality in Washington, and a slew of California propositions.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:39 PM PT (jeffmd): MI-11: The Republican lean of the district shows through, as CNN calls Republican Kerry Bentivolio the winner over Democrat Syed Taj.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:46 PM PT (jeffmd): While most states moved towards liberalization of marijuana regulations tonight, MT bucked the trend by passing IR-124.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:52 PM PT (jeffmd): David Valadao (R) claims the Central Valley-based CA-21, beating out Dem John Hernandez.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:54 PM PT (jeffmd): California's also passed a reform of its "Three Strikes" law. (Prop 36).

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 10:57 PM PT (jeffmd): We've been all watching FL-18 closely, and the latest dump of votes (moving us to 99% reporting) yields a lead of NTPM of 2,381 votes.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:09 PM PT (jeffmd): In UT-04, Jim Matheson once again proves his resilience -- he leads Mia Love by 2,800 votes with 100% reporting, though no call yet.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:19 PM PT: There are five major statewide elections left uncalled: NV-Sen, ND-Sen, MT-Sen, MT-Gov, WA-Gov.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:22 PM PT: NV-Sen. 59%. Heller up 46-45. 8700 votes

ND-Sen. 97% in. Heitkamp up 50.5-49.5. 3100 votes

MT-Sen. 37% in. Tester up 51-44

MT-Gov. Same. Bullock up 51-45

WA-Gov. 51% in. Inslee up 51-49

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:25 PM PT: Nice: Looks like Democrats have held the Iowa state Senate, the only bulwark against the state's GOP running rampant.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:27 PM PT: Another Dem pickup: Rick Nolan has defeated GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack in MN-08. Maybe Cravaack can run for the Republicans next cycle in his home state of New Hampshire.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:29 PM PT: Is there a more death-defying politician in America than Dem Rep. Jim Matheson? Despite having his district chopped to bits in redistricting, and despite running in Utah with a Mormon GOP presidential candidate at the top of the ticket, he's won re-election—Republican opponent Mia Love has just conceded. Wow. Triple wow.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:30 PM PT: FL-18: With his lead at 2,400 votes, Patrick Murphy has declared victory over Allen West. Amazing.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:38 PM PT: Sounds like loser-speak to me:

Berg announced he'll wait for canvassing process next week for #NDSen results to be official.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:43 PM PT: Not much left on the House front. Still a bunch of races in AZ & CA, plus FL-18, MI-01, MN-06, MT-AL, and NC-07.

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 11:46 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
