It is now up to the voters of Virginia and Montana whether the Senate will go to the Democrats or stay Republican. Democrats need to pick up both seats to gain a majority. Now that they have already won the House, a Senate victory would be huge. Without the Senate, I remain skeptical about what the Democratic House can accomplish.
Looking at the Virginia Senate race, I have to wonder what it says about the voters that George "Macaca" Allen appears to have received roughly half of the vote. Evidently, racism is not enough to lose an election. Then again, those of you who remember Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond won't be surprised by this.
