10. NBC gave it the checkmark, so they called it.

There is some confusion of the % counted, but it appears the 99% is the correct figure.

12. New total reported

Heidi Heitkamp 160,752

13. Huffpo page on ND says 100% reporting in, Heidi in the

lead with 160k, other guy at 157k. Unless there's a lot of absentee ballots coming in, I'd say she's won.

17. It is official, with 100% of votes in = HEIDI WON in ND = Whoooot!

Heidi Heitkamp 160,752 50.5%
Rick Berg 157,758 49.5%
Margin of nearly 3,000 votes.

That is settled, and it also illustrates the importance of every vote and the GOTV effort.

18. Great

Remember everyone wrote off this seat.I will admit I too thought Republicans would pick up this seat.But she proved to be a great
candiate.Plus this was another state where you might say Bill Clinton helped get out the vote.He did come to ND for her.

22. Thank you Akin and Mourdock for delivering at least four seats to the Dems

if not more, NM and Wi were close and the galvanized women's vote nationally may have put those raqces in the anti-rape column too.

23. Heidi on Facebook:

Heidi Heitkamp

Just got off the phone with Rep. Berg. I thanked him for his service and for being a part of our great democratic process.

I know a lot of people on both sides of the aisle worked very hard in this election. I am so grateful for the people who gave me their votes and this victory.

I make this promise to every North Dakotan: I will be a senator for each and every one of you. We did this together and I am so grateful to everyone on team HH4ND

24. E-mail from Heidi

Thank you. We did it!

I canít thank you enough for all you did to make me the next U.S. senator from North Dakota.

We pulled off a win no one thought we could. The experts said we didnít have a chance.

Thankfully, you refused to believe it. You put your energy into action and we ran the greatest grassroots campaign in North Dakotaís history.

We did it! It was a close election, and every vote mattered.

We overcame all the attacks from people outside our state who thought they knew best. I am so grateful to you for fighting it out to the finish.

Let me also take a moment to thank Congressman Rick Berg for his service. It was a close, hard-fought campaign. I am so grateful to the people who gave me their votes and this victory. But I also know there are many people in our state who did not vote for me.

Now, I make this promise to every North Dakotan: I will be a senator for each and every one of you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me the opportunity.

Heidi

25. Berg concedes


Heitkamp wins Senate seat; Berg concedes
1 hour ago ē Associated Press
http://bismarcktribune.com/news/election/berg-concedes-senate-seat-to-heitkamp/article_a9b5f79a-290b-11e2-9986-001a4bcf887a.html

FARGO, N.D. ó Democrat Heidi Heitkamp averted a Republican sweep in North Dakota's top races with a narrow defeat of Republican Rep. Rick Berg in the U.S. Senate race.

Heitkamp won the race by fewer than 3,000 votes, and Berg could have asked for a recount.

Instead, he conceded the race Wednesday with a qualifier: He was stepping aside barring any unforeseen circumstances with the state canvasing board that certifies the race results.

"But basically," he said, pausing to regain his composure, as he spoke to a room full of supporters in Fargo, "with that acknowledgement of the circumstances, I just want to be clear I want to concede the election to Heidi Heitkamp."

Berg said he trusted the state's auditors, who had been standing by their vote tallies. ..........
