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 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 11:27 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.
