Election Results

Nearly twelve hours after the first polls closed, the fate of the Senate remains unknown. With two states -- Montana and Virginia -- too close to call, the Democrats need both states to seize control of the Senate while Republicans need only one to retain control.

Candidates in both states are in a statistical deadlock, while one county in each state reports problems with voting machines that have caused some votes to remain uncounted. We will likely not have results until later today, at which time a recount is expected to be announced in Virginia, drawing out the final results even longer.

Whichever party wins control of the Senate, you can bet partisan politics will play a HUGE role for the next two years with such an even balance of power. America, prepare to watch and learn why the Democrats are the party of "no."
