So Far, So Good!


We will need to see some official calls, but so far, so good for Republicans.

Jackie Walorski is ahead by about 4,000 votes in IN-2.

Larry Bucshon is ahead by about 11,000 votes in IN-8.

Todd Young is ahead of Baron Hill by about 10,000 votes in IN-9.

Robert Hurt is ahead of Tom Perriello by about 11,000 votes in VA-5.

Scott Rigell is ahead of Glenn Nye, although there are only 2,000 votes in so far, and Keith Fimian is ahead of Gerry Connolly with even fewer votes in.

Morgan Griffith is ahead of Rick Boucher by about 5,000 votes in VA-9.

It’s possible some of these slip through the GOP’s fingers, but the trend is definitely the Republicans’ friend tonight.


And, of course . . . YES HE HAS!

UPDATE: It would have been nice to pick off one of the two competitive House districts in Kentucky — Andy Barr seemed like precisely the kind of guy you would like to have in Congress. (I’d note I predicted Democrat holds in both.)
