McConnell Re-Elected; Dole Ousted

With 23% of the vote counted, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been re-elected in Kentucky after a tough battle with millionaire Democrat Bruce Lunsford who had been gaining in the polls in recent weeks. If the Democrats had knocked off the top ranking Republican in the Senate they would be well on their to 60 seats.

On the other hand, with only 4% of the votes count, Elizabeth Dole has lost her Senate seat in North Carolina to Democratic State Senator Kay Hagan. Dole had released a controversial commercial citing Hagan's association with an atheist group which didn't play well given that Hagan is a Sunday school teacher. I saw the commercial and I must agree.

If Hagan can win the late Jesse Helms old seat can Obama be far behind?
