Indiana Update


With 78.4% of precincts counted, Yarmuth continues to lead Northup. He's got 94,401 (50.4%) votes to her 90,691 (48.4%).

With 10% of the precincts counted in KY-02 Weaver and Lewis are within 90 votes of each other!

Indiana is starting to have some significant returns now too. Donnelly has pulled ahead of Chocola 59% to 41% with 26% of precincts counted. Hayhurst will be giving Souder a run for his money in the 3rd, although with only 18% of votes counted it's too early to say what the final result will be. This is a real longshot for a Democrat and Hayhurst is less than 2,000 votes behind. And in the "bloody 8th" Ellsworth continues to trounce Hostettler: 34% of precinct reporting and Ellsworth has 62% of the vote. 24% of the precincts are counted in IN-09 and former Congressman Baron Hill has a 2% lead over whacky wing-nut Mike Sodrel.

(CNN is projecting Ellsworth as the winner, the first House pickup that the Democrats need; 14 to go — JH)

Howie Klein

Howie Klein spent much of his life wandering around the world living in places like Afghanistan, Nepal, Holland and Morocco. He moved backed to America when Richard Nixon resigned and promptly helped start the first punk rock radio show in the country and then a DIY punk rock record label. His adventures in the music business ended a couple of years ago when he retired as president of Reprise Records. He began blogging almost immediately, starting Down With Tyranny. Jane taught him html while he held one of her dogs at a party. He is a raw foodist, lives in L.A., swims and hikes every day, thinks Howard Dean could be a president as great as FDR and will never be completely happy until Bush and Cheney are behind bars.
