Join us in comments for the virtual watch party!

We're hanging in there and celebrating with those Democrats who've won their races!

Join us in comments for our continuing virtual watch party. This post will be updated as results come in...


John Culberson Loses to Lizzie Fletcher in TX-07
Abigail Spanberger Beats Dave Brat in VA-07
Antonio Delgado ousts John Faso in NY-19
Sean Casten wins over Peter Roskam in IL-06
Abby Finkenauer beats Rod Blum in IA-01

Currently a net gain of 20, and that's before California weighs in.

JD Scholten is losing by 5 points to neo-Nazi Steve King right now. Hoping that changes.

Update 2:

JD Scholten is behind Steve King by about 40 votes right now. It's really a nailbiter.

NBC projects Josh Hawley is the winner for Missouri Senate, but Jon Tester is maintaining his lead in Montana. It's worth remembering that a year ago it was projected that this tough Dem year would be a runaway for Republicans, and would yield a supermajority in the Senate. Yet in a year when the economy appears to be strong (it isn't, but appearances are everything), Trump's party lost the House and we are successfully defending many Senate seats. Not to mention the don't be too sad.

Meanwhile, Tony Evers leads Scott Walker in WI by around 12,000 votes. Is it time for a bag of votes to appear from Waukesha?

Randy Bryce did not win his district, but he sure gave it a good shot. Remember, that was Paul Ryan's district!

Update 3: Democrat Janet Mills has been elected Maine Governor, replacing the odious Paul LePage.

They've called Duncan Hunter's race. In my opinion they called it too early for a California race, but all it means is that Duncan Hunter will go back to Congress along with his corrupt pal Chris Collins and neo-Nazi Steve King. They will have no power to speak of, and will, in the end, be convicted or forced to resign.

Update 4: Devin Nunes will have to go back to the House, too, but not as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. BWAHAHAHA

Update 5: Weirdness in Wisconsin again. Found absentee ballots in Milwaukee that haven't been counted and some outstanding Walker districts.

Meanwhile, here are some House races:

#AZ01: Rep. Tom O'Halleran (D) defeats Wendy Rogers (R)
#TX31: Rep. John Carter (R) defeats MJ Hegar (D) (Sad face)
#IL14: Lauren Underwood (D) defeats Rep. Randy Hultgren (R)
#IL13: Rodney Davis (R) holds on over Betsy Dirksen Londrigan (D) (Sad face)


SCOTT WALKER LOST. I REPEAT: SCOTT WALKER LOST. Roll that around and let it sink in.
Jacky Rosen is on track to win Nevada and send Dean Heller home. Things are tight in Arizona and Montana still.

BUT BUT...Scott Walker lost!
