I think we just lost Pennsylvania
Toomey is ahead by 20,000 votes and his strongholds are mostly the ones to report. I do not see how Sestak can make up the gap.

7. No, Toomey would have spanked Specter.
It would not have been this close even.

6. This is just unacceptable
It's not over until it's over. And I hope Sestak doesn't concede. I don't mind not doing protocol with these thugs.

10. The most important thing to take from this race is the turnout!!!!
If the turnout is below '08 levels, then Obama has a great chance to hold Pennsylvania in '12. This will be a squeaker, but it could have been much worse.

We need to focus on the turn out in swing swing states and start planning for '12!

11. Actually it looks like many precincts are still out in Philly and Delaware County.
I don't think this is over yet.

13. Not nearly enough.
Both counties have reported at least as high a proportion as the state as a whole.

It ain't "over", but the far lady is gargling.
