9 PM Update


9 PM UPDATE….ABC says Tom Udall has won the senate seat in New Mexico. That’s +4 in the senate for Dems.

Obama is ahead in the electoral college by about 174-76.

….Pretty much everyone seems to agree that Florida is looking very grim for John McCain. No official call yet, though.

….CNN says McConnell has retained his senate seat in Kentucky. Damn.

….Fox and NBC have called Ohio for Obama. That’s the election at 9:25 pm EST.

….Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States. Our long national nightmare is (almost) over.

….NBC has called New Mexico for Obama.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
