Senate Still Up In The Air, Redux

As the State of Sunshine — and so many other pundits — predicted, the Democrats have taken control of the United States House of Representatives. This brings up four words that will make conservatives shudder: Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Before the election, the State of Sunshine posted a chart showing 79 key races. Below is a summary of those races. The results used were from the MSNBC website. This post will be updated as the other races are called.

The net gain for Democrats is still +4. But the Democratic candidate is still barely winning in the last two states. If these all hold true, the Democrats take control of the Senate 51-49.
