As Polls Close in Va., CBS News Estimates GOP's Bob McDonnell Is Leading the Gov. Race
As of about 7:13 PM Eastern, even Fox News is calling this race "too close to call" (note, this is not"too early to call," which is more about timing than margin). Interesting. (Update [2009-11-3 19:28:5 by Jonathan Singer]: Fox News corrects, joins others in calling this race too early to call.)
More as we hear it...
Update [2009-11-3 19:48:51 by Jerome Armstrong]: Per Lowell, "With 16.9% of the vote counted, it's now McDonnell 63.5%-Deeds 36.4%. For LG, it's Bolling 61.7%-Wagner 38.2%. For AG, it's Cuccinelli 62.5%-Shannon 37.4%. NLS has already called the races. The only part of interest seems to be whether Wagner and Shannon get more votes than top-of-the-ticket Deeds-- now that's pathetic.
