6:00 PM PT: Polls are now closed in New York, where the mayor's race damn well better not offer us any surprises.
6:02 PM PT (Darth Jeff): About 30% reporting in Boston and things remain tight in the race to be the city's new mayor. Walsh leads Connolly 50.50-49.50.
6:06 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 9 out of 614 precincts reporting in Detroit's mayor race and Mike Duggan has a 51-49 lead over Benny Napoleon. If Duggan wins he'll be the city's first white mayor since 1974.
6:07 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 54% reporting in Charlotte and things have tightened up. Democrat Cannon leads Republican Peacock only 51-49.
6:09 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 83% reporting in Greensboro and it looks like we have another pickup. Dem Vaughan leads incumbent Republican Perkins 59-41 in the mayoral race.
6:12 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 47% reporting in Boston and Wash narrowly leads 52-48. This one could come down to the wire.
6:13 PM PT (Steve Singiser): In the Virginia legislative races, the Democrats are still looking at a net pickup of 3 seats. They still lead in HD-32 (Greason), HD-86 (Rust), HD-93 (Watson), and HD-94 (Yancey). Two of those four were Daily Kos endorsed candidates: Jennifer Boysko in HD-86 and Rob Farinholt in HD-94. The other three endorsed candidates are within striking distance, with substantial votes to be counted.
6:13 PM PT (Darth Jeff): In Detroit 8% is reporting and Napoleon leads by eight votes. A lot left but this is far closer than the polls led us to believe it would be.
6:14 PM PT: Now AL-01 is looking interesting. Tea partier Dean Young up 52-48 over establishment guy Bradley Byrne w/31% reporting.
