In a pretty gutsy move, Jim Webb just went on TV and announced that he won the Virginia senate race. Considering that everyone is saying a recount is imminent, and charges of voting irregularities are likely forthcoming, perhaps Mr. Webb is a bit premature. But, hey, good for him.

George Allen, for the record, went on TV earlier and said that the vote would continue into tomorrow.

Mother Jones ran a cover story on this race earlier today.
