8 p.m.: Eastern U.S. coming in; Update: Coons, Blumenthal, Manchin win; Winners: Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte, Tim Scott, Dan Webster over Alan Grayson; Update: Grayson blames weather

posted at 8:00 pm on November 2, 2010 by Allahpundit

The polls are about to close in 19 states, so prepare for an avalanche of returns. Senate races this hour: Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Mark Kirk in Illinois, Linda McMahon in Connecticut and … O’Donnell. If Coons’s lead held, that race should be called fairly quickly. Other Senate races are locks for the GOP: Kelly Ayotte, a mama grizzly, is going to win in New Hampshire, and John Boozman’s finally going to put Blanche Lincoln out of her misery in Arkansas.

Massachusetts is also coming in this hour; if Bielat pulls the upset, look out for a ‘bot cameo. Other House races: Kristi Noem is favored against Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin in SD-1; ancient Democratic titan Ike Skelton tries to hold on in MO-4; and John Dingell aims for his 8,000th term in the House by holding off Rob Steele in MI-15.

Update: Right at the top of the hour, CNN calls it for Ayotte, and … Chris Coons. The blowout evidently happened. There’ll be more to say about that tomorrow, but not tonight.

Update: Finally, finally, CNN calls Florida for Rubio. Our long national nightmare is over; the most cynical opportunist in the entire field this year is no more.

Dude, it’s time.

Update: Here’s one to please grassroots righties: Tom Perriello, who defended his ObamaCare and stimulus votes and brought The One in to campaign him last week, is reportedly kaput. That’s not an official call, but he’s eight points down with 63 percent reporting. Meanwhile, right next door in Virginia, Rick Boucher still trails by six with 69 percent reporting. That’s a huge bellwether if it holds; now we’re looking at something in the neighborhood of 65 seats or more.

Update: How sweet it is: With 42 percent reporting, Rubio’s got fully 50 percent of the vote. A clear majority in this race would be phenomenal.

Update: Virginia’s turning into a complete wipeout for the Democrats: Reportedly, Glenn Nye’s on his way to defeat too. Remember all the media hype two years ago about how the state was turning blue after Obama won it? Thank Bob McDonnell for showing Virginians that the GOP can govern for helping goose these returns.

Update: Revealing exit poll anecdotes in Delaware:

“I’m sorry but I am not her,” said Carol Terry, 72, an independent who voted at a Smyrna middle school. “She has no agenda, no experience.”

Even Republicans had a hard time supporting her. The party establishment all but gave up on her campaign, and many GOP voters said they felt compelled to back Coons.

“I just couldn’t see her as my senator,” said Gary Stulir, a 41-year-old Republican from Smyrna. “She just couldn’t take responsibility for anything she did … I can’t believe anybody backs her.”

Update: Remember Suzanne Kosmas, who allegedly traded her vote on ObamaCare to The One in exchange for some NASA-related pork? That race has been called. She’s gone.

Update: Wonderful, if completely expected, news: Tim Scott wins his House race in South Carolina, becoming the first black Republican sent to the House from the south since Reconstruction.

Update: Go watch the Humpbot clip above a second time: Alan Grayson’s about to concede. As I write this, with 65 percent in, Webster’s up 17 points. Work it, Humpy.

Update: The match is over for Linda McMahon: ABC calls it for Blumenthal, per Tapper on Twitter.

Update: Confirmed: The AP says Boucher and Perriello both lose. Again, Boucher’s seat was ranked 70th on Nate Silver’s list of seats likely to turn red.

Update: Wow — according to a La Raza poll, 62 percent of Latino Floridians broke for Rubio. Yet another reason why he’ll end up on the ticket someday.

Update: Brutal — Fox and ABC are both calling West Virginia for Manchin. You can forget the Senate majority now.

Update: Confirmed: Baron “Political Terrorists” Hill is done in Indiana. His was the 41st most likely seat to turn Republican in Silver’s model. Between the Senate disappointments tonight and the big GOP wins in Virgnia, it looks like we’re headed for a big wave but not a mega-tsunami: 50-65 House seats plus a much stronger minority in the Senate.

Update: Maybe I spoke too soon about the mega-tsunami: NBC ranked Boucher’s seat 85th among likely pick-ups.

Update: It’s come to this:

Grayson conceded at his watch party at Slingapour’s in downtown Orlando Tuesday night.

Grayson’s campaign said they needed a massive Democratic turnout to win, and that simply didn’t happen with the weather.

With 78 percent reporting, the guy’s down 17 points.

I really wanted ODonnell to win. I commend her for giving it her best try. I think she is done in DE though. They are just too blue… No regrets about Castle though – NO MOPRE RINOs! The other races look good. Just got back from voting here in L.A. and the people at the polls said they have never been so busy even in the presidential election. I have no idea what that means though. I don’t know who is more motivated the Unions or We The People!

So most everyone in the country wins, except for two states that rank in the top 3 most populous states of the nation (CA, NY).

MadisonConservative on November 2, 2010 at 9:03 PM

Looked like “told you sos” from here.

Doesn’t bother me too much, though. I supported O’Donnell because she was better than Castle, and the Senate is already overloaded with RINOs. In the long term, we badly need more conservative Republicans.

By winning the primary, she got the point across that you can’t ignore the conservative base and expect them to vote for you.

But it’s hard to win an election when your own party votes for a very liberal democrat, and GOP leaders attack you on the night of your primary win.

Knowing the history among yourselves and Jenfidel, and with such incredible good news to focus on, why are you even going near and shaking that old hornet’s nest? On a night when it would be nice if we could all be at least civil, if not united in common cause to rejoice and enjoy what is a real blessing for our nation, I wrote what I did in hopes of nipping anything untoward in the bud. In short, “can’t we all just get along?” imo, tonight is a night when we should all thank God and treat each other with respect, as brothers and sisters in arms. And get ready for the real work that lies ahead. We will all need to pull together. That said, I wish all here well and glad tidings, and won’t address this subject again this historic evening.

Cybertoast then, dammit.

MadisonConservative on November 2, 2010 at 9:48 PM

I think the overarching theme for me in terms of the more high-profile Senate is that voters are looking for personality in their candidates. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio seem very genuine and are very articulate, personable people. COD did not articulate her positions very well IMO and Raese didn’t seem like a very personable candidate. I hope she can pull it out, but Angle seemed to stumble over her words quite a bit and did not come across particularly engaging. So, I think in the future, Conservatives need to look for candidates not only with the correct positions but also candidates who can connect with voters.

RobbBond on November 2, 2010 at 9:48 PM

tigerlily on November 2, 2010 at 9:45 PM

Grayson’s campaign said they needed a massive Democratic turnout to win, and that simply didn’t happen with the weather.

wha? was it raining republicans?

That said, I wish all here well and glad tidings, and won’t address this subject again this historic evening.

Hey, I just said Rubio could be my president. Someone disagree with me so I can call you some names.

hawkdriver on November 2, 2010 at 9:44 PM

I disagree, cuz I said he could be my president first….

Tedc, you crack me up!

As long as no city or state gets bailed out, then the voters deserve what they get. Chicago especially.

Rove is right…to pull so many wins, you certainly must be more FOR something than simply voting against the opposition. Great news in the ideology department, if true. We have to continue to articulate the conservative message well.

I’m…so happy, so excited. *giddiness*

Bee on November 2, 2010 at 10:00 PM

Absolutely. :)

Hurry up…my motor skills are fading…

DK, it’s pretty demoralizing. That lying sack of crap Devil Patrick has raised the sales tax (among other taxes)and all the lies he said in 2006 NEVER transpired and it looks like he is gonna be re-elected. I.Just.Can’t.Believe.It!!!!

That idiot Coakley is re-elected and that sputtering, stuttering nutsack Barney’s Frank wins! OMG, I just wanna have a HUGE temper tantrum. This place is bloody nuts!!!!

Oh, and like 2 years ago the freaks here voted down eliminating the income tax and now it looks like they are gonna reject lowering the sales tax by 50%. WTF!!!

Oh, and don’t even get me started on that buck-toothed hack trojan horse Tim Cahill!!!!!!!!

Gob on November 2, 2010 at 10:02 PM

More McCain. Hooray! *sigh*

Tiger, in all sincerity, I didn’t mean my comment maliciously at Jen. I realize our history but still meant nothing in the comment. Yes, I realized she might get offended, but that’s true of most things I will type here.

So if it makes you more comfortable… Jen, I meant no harm. If you think that crossed a line, I take it back.

Sarah Palin and Tea Party endorsed Mike Kelly winning over D Kathy Dahlkemper PA-3…remember she was the only female of the pack of blue dogs on Obamacare. She voted FOR it. Most of the seats here in PA are going GOP.

ProudPalinFan on November 2, 2010 at 10:02 PM

His speech, however, left me cold.

Jvette on November 2, 2010 at 9:54 PM

Yeah, it was weirdly self-absorbed and self-congratulatory. West Virginia is a parochial backwater that is economically manhandled by the remnants of the Rockefeller billions. They vote Democrat for the same reasons that largely conservative white union workers in Chicago vote Democrat — their jobs and economic interests.

Urban corrupt = rural stupid

Jaibones on November 2, 2010 at 10:03 PM

WahHoo, Hawk wins one in PA. Corbett wins the governorship. Okay, the way they reporte all night, he came from behind. Toomey too?

Yes Bee, I’m a Tarheel next time but I’m voting the last time PA tonight. Er, absentee weeks ago.
