Election 2006: The Never Ending Stoooory.

Posted by Mike Merritt in Election 2006, Politics on

Actually, that was a pretty good movie. But, I’m not talking about luckdragons and a kid that apparently is supposed to represent Native Americans.

I’m talking about how the CT district 2 and Senate races STILL have not ended, and don’t seem likely to end for some time. Simmons and Courtney are apart by less than 200 votes now, with 100% of precincts reported. So, it will be inevitable that it goes for a recount. I honestly cannot call this one anymore, since it could go either way, depending on if the votes change during the recount.

I’m going to tentatively call a Democratic win for Montana and Virginia. It’s is very possible that both votes will go for a recount, but even if they do, I don’t think it’s going to make much difference. With that, I’m knock on wood tentatively calling that the Democrats will regain control of the Senate as well as the House, meaning they’ll have Congress back for the first time in twelve years (besides that stint in 2001) that was elected as such.

I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on the races for the rest of the day, and especially the Simmons and Courtney race. The Republicans have already lost one House seat in CT…will they lose two? Stay tuned.
