The election results are coming in, and they’re looking like a solid drubbing for the socialist agenda of Obama, Reid and Pelosi. Three of four congressional contests go to the GOP, and the Fimian - Connolly race is headed for a recount.
7:00PM Early projections: Wolf (VA10) and Wittman (VA01) cruise to victory.
7:08PM Projection: Hurt (VA05) and Rigell (VA02) win. (PICKUP R x2)
9:05PM Projection: Griffith (VA09) wins. (PICKUP R)
9:16PM: Leeper, Naddoni, Banks & Treuting win in Manassas Park.
9:21PM: Projection: Republicans take House Majority, Nancy Pelosi is FIRED.
9:43PM: Projection: Democrats retain majority in U.S. Senate.
9:51PM: Fimian and Connolly still running very close - 122 votes separate with 21 precincts left.
10:07PM: Jim Moran refuses Patrick Murray’s concession call. Classy right up to the end, moron.
10:15PM: 818 votes separate Connolly and Fimian, but remaining precincts are Fairfax and absentee.
10:23PM: Projection: Fimian falls short of knocking out Connolly.
11:15PM: State Board of Elections tweets that 26,000 absentee ballots yet to be counted but their website shows all absentee precincts have reported. Something strange going on, results may shift in this race after SBE gets their act together.
12:25AM: SBE now says the absentee ballots in VA-11 have been counted and are included in the totals. Two Fairfax precincts are “locked down” due to voting machine problems, and provisional ballots are yet to be counted. What a debacle. A recount is definitely called for here.
