Late Midterm Returns (UPDATE 4)

And no, "Late Midterm Returns" was NOT the name of my garage band in the '80's.

Here's a midday open thread with some recovery music and late results, including two Dem holds:

Midday open thread below...

UPDATE 1: (Karoli) Lucy McBath has won over...Karen Handel!!! In GA-06

UPDATE 2: (Karoli) Steve Knight just conceded CA-25 to Katie Hill. Yet another pickup, and a major one.

UPDATE 3: For the first time since 1986, Democrats win SC-01: Joe Cunningham defeats Katie Arrington. Arrington defeated Mark Sanford in the primary.

UPDATE 4: Xochitl Torres Small has won NM-02. When she declared her candidacy, she was given almost no chance of winning. She is a Hispanic woman, a water lawyer and long-time political organizer in southern New Mexico.

Also, it looks like Andy Kim is on track to win NJ-03 after taking the lead from Trumpcare promoter Tom MacArthur.
