Montana Politics

The Post 8:00 p.m. Show

Shares

8:57 p.m. NBC is projecting 231 seats in the House, a gain of 29.

8:56 p.m. Early returns have Andy Hunthausen way ahead in Lewis and Clark County. How about counting some of those Senate ballots?

8:52 p.m. CNN exit polling for Montana is interesting. Tester ahead 50-48 among men, 54-44 among women. Young voters (18-29) are the source of biggest support for Tester. Did they turn out?

8:49 p.m. South Dakota’s abortion ban looks to be headed to defeat.

8:43 p.m. Missouri is looking pretty ugly. Let’s hope these are Rush Limbaugh counties. With 1/3 of the precints in, Talent leads by 11%

8:40 p.m. Webb closing the gap? Down by 8,000 with just over 6% to come in. COME ON VIRGINIA!

8:38 p.m. First results in from Montana, Tester up 4888-4147 in Yellowstone.

8:37 p.m. The Lieberman victory speech. Lucky us.

8:35 p.m. Who is sadder tonight? Bill Kristol or K-Fed?

8:33 p.m. It says a lot about what the National Review has become the more they shower sorrow on Rick Santorum.

8:31 p.m. Only 9% in, but Jim Pedersen ahead in Arizona. Virginia looking less and less likely. Thanks, Gail.

8:27 p.m. First Montana update. Cascade County having problems again. Schweitzer still campaigning for Tester.

8:20 p.m. Nora O’Donnell channels Dan Rather, telling us that Virginia is “tight as a tick”. What does that mean? Big chunks of Northern Virginia not in. Democrats are confident about Tennessee. More power to them.

8:17 p.m. Pennsylvania Republican Don Sherwood (the adulterous, girlfriend choking member of the party of morality) is headed to defeat.

8:13 p.m. Pat Buchanan is citing ‘someone close to Karl Rove’ as saying that tonight’s not a bad night for the Republicans.

8:09 p.m. Nancy Johnson in Connecticut and Charlie Bass from New Hampshire…done for.

8:06 p.m. That was quick. CNN is calling the Montana House race for Dennis. Great news on I-151, though. CNN is saying it passed.

8:04 p.m. Webb now down by 18,000, with almost 92% in. Come on, Virginia!

8:01 p.m. Santorum concession time. One dream down. Chris Matthews says a lot of people don’t like Rick Santorum. In his concession speech, the crazy Burns supporter from the Great Falls debate starts shrieking uncontrollably. Maybe, Rick, you should have let your kids, who are in tears, stay inside tonight.
