(12:58) Damn you, Minnesota. I need to sleep. With 96% of the precincts in, Al Franken has pulled ahead by just over 1,000 votes.
(12:57) Did John Driscoll really almost out-poll Roy Brown tonight? That bully.
(12:48) The Secretary of State race is getting closer with each posting. Currently, McCulloch leads by just under 1,000 votes with 84% of precincts in. Still no votes from Beaverhead, Judith Basin, or Meagher, so look for this to get tighter as the night goes on, or more likely, as the morning rolls around.
(12:39) Is there a reason that the good people in Meagher County don’t count ballots on election night?
(12:30) With 94% of the vote in, Norm Coleman has a less than 100 vote lead in Minnesota. Go Al, Go!
(12: 24) I was right about Indiana. The AP is calling it for Obama. It looks like North Carolina will go for Obama, and Missouri and Montana (sigh) for McCain.
(12:06) If the Gazette is reporting the same precincts as the Secretary of State, I feel good about the statewide races. It looks like the missing votes are from strong Republican and Democratic counties. With 75% of the votes in:
- McCulloch 50, Johnson 48
- Bullock 53, Fox 47I
- Juneau 52, Herman 43
- Lindeen 54, Grimes 46
- Schweitzer 66, Brown 32 (How amazing is it that we haven’t even had to worry about this?)
