7:00pm Poll Closings


The networks called Kentucky for John McCain and Vermont for Barack Obama. Indiana and South Carolina, which were called immediately after polls closed in 2004, are still too close to call. Indiana being a close race portends a tough night for John McCain. George W. Bush won that state by 21 points in 2004. Virginia is too close to call, too, but Mark Warner will, as expected, be the next US Senator from Virginia. That’s the Democrats’ first Senate pickup of the night.
