Democrats Projected to Win Senate as Well as House

NBC now projects Webb as the winner in Virginia, meaning the Democrats have won control of the House and Senate, exceeding the expectations of many pundits. Recounts remain possible in close states such as Virginia and Montana, and the official result in Virginia might not be known for weeks. Going into possible recounts leading does give a tremendous advantage to the Democrats.

Update: Allen appears likely to concede if the margin remains as great as at present:

An adviser to Allen, speaking on condition of anonymity because his boss had not formally decided to end the campaign, said the senator wanted to wait until most of canvassing was completed before announcing his decision, possibly as early as Thursday evening.

The adviser said that Allen was disinclined to request a recount if the final vote spread was similar to that of election night.

    Check out Wyoming. Race has 970 vote margin, 940 triggers a recount. It will probably go Cubin, but you never know. Trauner may ask for a recount.
