Looks like McSally has this won. Including FL and MS Special, (assuming run-off win) that’s 54 Republican senate seats.

Betting markets pretty much calling AZ-SEN for McSally. I'm surprised NV and AZ diverged so much. https://t.co/rlamnsut2Y So assuming Missoula delivers MT to Tester and no shocker in the MS runoff, that's 54-46 R in the Senate.

Calling it a night. 85% in and McSally looks on track for victory. Pima County is all in now. Green Party candidate spoiled the race for the Dems by getting 2%. Rosendale is ahead, but lots of urban Montana is still out. Guess we will see how it pans out in the morning.
Gianforte wins House seat in Montana.
Abrams – 48.3%
Kemp – 50.8%
Stacey Abrams has lost. There isn’t going to be a recount.

Heller loses in Nevada. Dems pick up Senate seat. GOP is now +3 in the Senate. Waiting on Arizona and Montana now.

Heller is in trouble in Nevada. Down 7 points with 73% reporting.
The Dem is now up on Scott Walker by 30,000 votes or so in Wisconsin.
Farewell to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

If you are up late, Tester is now losing in Montana. McSally and Heller are up in Arizona and Nevada.
It’s over and the fat lady has sung in the Georgia governor race, but StaAbrams isn’t conceding. Even if she got 100% of votes left to be counted, she would still lose. In fact, she is losing by a greater margin than Gillum who conceded hours ago.
Brian Kemp leads by 2.9 percentage points over Stacey Abrams with 96 percent of precincts reporting https://t.co/gOflHid4Ox

For Gillum, Abrams and O’Rourke to lose — and to such awful characters as Desantis and Kemp and Cruz — is really sad. And for Steve King to win is unspeakable. Sad to see McCaskill and Heitkamp and Donnelly lose as well. So tonight’s news is mixed. Trumpism is still on the march.

Gillum lost …
BETO lost …
Abrams is about to LOSE …
MUH BLUE WAVE LOL
The GOP has held on IN SPITE of its shit policy agenda. If they had made the slightest effort to keep populist swing voters, they would have held the House. Most people voted to give Trump and the GOP another chance because it has only been two years and the alternative is, well …
Dems have picked up 26 House seats so far. 3 more than needed to take the House. This doesn’t seem very unusual for a midterm election. Nothing like the 2010 election.
Scott Walker is up by like 3,000 votes in Wisconsin. There isn’t any Blue Wave.

GOP is now +3 in the Senate. Florida still hasn’t been called.
Josh Hawley wins in Missouri. Senate race. GOP pickup.
DeSantis wins Florida governor race. Gillum loses.
It goes without saying this is shaping up to be a blue eddy. Dems narrowly take the House. GOP increases majority in the Senate. OD is projecting two years of gridlock.
Mike DeWine wins Ohio governor race. GOP hold.
BETO LOSES. Beautiful Ted the Zodiac wins. FOX News calls the Senate for the GOP.
Kobach loses in Kansas.
Kevin Cramer wins in North Dakota. Senate race. GOP pickup.
Mitt Romney wins. Senate race. Please clap.
FOX News projects Dems take House of Representatives.
Mike Braun wins in IN. Joe Manchin wins in WV. Senate races.
Bob Menendez wins in NJ. Marsha Blackburn wins in TN. Senate races.
Andy Barr wins Kentucky 6. Republican hold. FOX News calls it a bellwether. Dems are up 2 House seats.
Kay Ivey wins governor race here in Alabama.
My account is back up on Gab.
Corey Stewart loses. No surprise. Trump didn’t set foot in Virginia to support him.
That’s why I skipped voting for Congress tonight. I don’t support the Republican policy agenda. I’m not satisfied with tweets, lip service and failure theater.
“Long before he was president, Donald Trump was a celebrity, a walking, talking jumble of political incorrectness who rode his billionaire populism all the way to the Oval Office.
But a funny thing happened to Mr. Trump once he became president. At some point he understood that if he was not to fizzle out like so many populists before him—think pro wrestler turned governor Jesse “The Body” Ventura in Minnesota or Arnold “The Terminator” Schwarzenegger in California—he would need to tether his populism to the Republican policy agenda. And, mostly, he has. …”

I have no idea how this election will turn out. Red Wave or Blue Wave or split decision or status quo the only thing sure to happen is that lots of people will be mad over the result. I’m just ready for it to be over. I voted pink and then only reluctantly. I didn’t see any reason to punish Gov. Kay Ivey or a bunch of Alabama State Supreme Court justices because I am furious with Congress.
Speaking of Doyle, my one and only political allegiance …
I will address Gab’s recent issues after the election is over and the news cycle moves on. In the meantime, I will only be posting here.
As I said elsewhere, if the GOP squeaks by tonight, it will be in spite of their shit agenda of the last two years. They’re running on a massive permanent tax cut for the wealthy and the Charlottesville Resolution.
Well, I voted.
As expected, I voted for sheriff, but I also voted Republican in state races. My wife also voted for Kay Ivey. Screw Congress.
Here we go.
This is your open thread for the 2018 midterm elections.
Here is a look back at some previous elections: 2016 Presidential Election, 2014 Midterm Elections, 2012 Presidential Election, 2010 Midterm Elections. I enthusiastically backed the Republicans in 2010 and 2016. I was neutral in 2012 and 2014. I’m neutral again in 2018.
Note: Someone will be Doyle in less than 24 hours.
