    Yeah, he's leading right now and may win. However, Kitzhaber is closing fast and with 25% of Multnomah County (Portland and Highly Democratic) yet to be counted he could very well win.

    I don't count my chickens before they're hatched.

    Let's see if the people of Oregon remain insane, voting for the same policies and people over and over again expecting different results. Results really don't seem to matter to ideologues.

    This is how Reid won


    LAS VEGAS — A lawyer for Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle has filed a complaint with the Justice Department alleging illegal voter intimidation on behalf of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign.

    The complaint is based on an article, which appeared Tuesday morning in National Review, that alleged Reid's campaign worked with sympathetic executives to put pressure on union casino employees to vote.

    Supervisors were instructed to track down employees who hadn't voted and find out why, according to e-mails obtained by reporter and conservative blogger Elizabeth Crum.

    Guess 14.4% unemployment is a good thing in Nevada. Doesn't really matter to me what the people of Nevada did, I am extremely happy what my home state of Ohio did and all the Midwest including Pa. did. That is a powerful message. Obama's old Senate seat? Wow, that is huge

    if i were you, i wouldnt count on ohio staying red for any length of time...the state is middle of the road, and tends to go back and forth...hence the term of ohio being a 'bellweather' state...

    The people of Ohio showed that results matter not the rhetoric. Obama visited Ohio, how many times? I plan on Ohio getting back to the Ohio I remember, strong economically. Strickland, YOU'RE FIRED!

    Someday "Progressives" will be fully unmasked for the killers of freedom they are.

    J-mac, please let me know which party was in complete control of both the Senate and House in 2004? Big hint: It wasn't the Democratic party.

    kasich won't be around for long unless things improve at an unrealistic pace in the state....we all want a quick recovery, and we want it NOW!! that is what explains the republicans having a good night last night...i've said it before, i'll say it again, the recovery won't be overnight, and in two years, if things havent progressed dramatically toward said recovery, you could see the tide turn in a dramatic way back to the dems...

    That's how many feel about Grassely in Iowa. Why I voted for hinm many times. Not this yeaqr mind you, but often in the past.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
