Now We Wait

The polls close in Florida at 7:00 p.m., but the state has two time zones, so there won’t be any official results reported until after 8:00 p.m. ET.

I will be back updating this post as the night goes on until the presidential race is called or until I fall asleep.  Until then, I’m catching up on “The Crown” on Netflix.

8:12 pm: Marco Rubio re-elected in Florida.  Gee, Patrick Murphy might have had a chance if Florida had a Democratic party.  Tammy Duckworth (D) beats incumbent Mark Kirk (R) in the Illinois Senate race, so that’s a pickup for the Democrats.

9:21 pm: It’s looking like this is going to be tighter than the oracles said.  This will be a long night.
