They never announced a winner. Since last night they have maintained that hundreds of thousands of ballots are yet to be counted. I hope there is no deadline. Let it take as long as it needs to, regardless of who the final victor is.Surprising news from AZ: there are apparently still 492,000 uncounted ballots from Maricopa and Pima counties. These are a mix of ballots submitted via early voting and early / absentee ballots actually handed in on election day. See this post for an analysis but the bottom line is that this race could still go either way.
I really wish Angela Green had withdrawn and thrown her support to Sinema sooner than last week. That's 38,978 votes, while the difference between Sinema and McSally is only 17,073They never announced a winner.

Just found out ... the candidate we were trying to help actually WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!There is a house race in Southern California still too close to call .... considering the length of time the Republican incumbent has been in, the fact that it is this close is already promising . Not my district, but I was writing GOTV postcards to people in that district for months leading up to this, and I want to see what happens.
I thought so too. Sometimes I feel the third party candidate has hurt the democrats' chances. They have the right to run, but in the interest of the country it will be better for them to withdraw until the situation is normal again.I really wish Angela Green had withdrawn and thrown her support to Sinema sooner than last week.

The toss-up race in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District is headed to a ranked-choice voting count, with U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin holding a slight lead over Assistant Maine House Majority Leader Jared Golden.
With roughly 91.5 percent of precincts reporting to the Bangor Daily News by 6 p.m. Wednesday, Poliquin, a two-term Republican from Oakland who won the seat in 2014 after two decades of Democratic control, led Golden, a Democrat, by about 700 votes.
Because neither Golden nor Poliquin gained a majority, the people who ranked the two independents in the race first will decide the race in ranked-choice counting, which would be run by Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap’s office.
Late Wednesday afternoon, Dunlap confirmed that the contest would go to a new round of ballot tabulation under Maine’s 2016 ranked-choice voting law. Ballots from all precincts in the district will be collected from municipal clerks and delivered Thursday to Augusta. A new tabulation of those ballots is scheduled to begin Friday.
Historic voter turnout and machine breakdowns lead to long lines, delayed countsDoes anyone know why it's taking Maine so long to count their Governor's race and one House race?
Another blue gain for Congress. First time ever for NM.Xochitl Torres Small just flipped New Mexico's 3rd Congressional District for the Democrats (the southern part of the state). I'm digging the large stretch of blue on the House map in that part of the country.
I was right there with you although it's Trump's or rather, his enabler's fault and not the election's. He fired Sessions and Republicans didn't speak out, he threatened that he will have any House member who investigates him be investigated by the Senate and no Republican immediately countered by reminding him that the Senate is an independent branch. Made me feel so frustrated, disheartened and helpless again because the people who are charged with it, refuse to do make sure the checks and balances work.
It's true that Jealous had a lot less money to work with than Hogan (as the incumbent, Hogan has been raising money for 4 years). The state Dem party probably realized Jealous was a long shot and decided their money would be better spent elsewhere (this escaped my mind earlier, but I'm thinking you may have heard it was his support for Sanders, not Clinton, that was the party's objection, b/c if they denied support to any Clinton supporter, they wouldn't support anyone). And yes, the Dem Governors Association did not spend very much on MD, likely realizing the odds against Jealous (and also knowing that a Rep gov in MD won't affect presidential voting in 2020) and preferring to focus on more competitive (and higher profile) races in FL and GA.Ben Jealous received little support monetary and GOTV from the state's Democratic party. With more resources he could have targeted more voters.
There was A lot attention and work force resources that were given to campaigns, like Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gollum.

If a candidate in Wisconsin is losing by less than 1 percent, they can ask for a recount — but Walker lost by 1.2 percent.
Business Insider reports that the threshold is due to a law Walker signed after President Trump was elected. Mr. Trump won Wisconsin by 23,000 votes, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who received just 1 percent of the vote, demanded and received a recount, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. In response, the state legislature passed a measure mandating that in the future, candidates could only request a recount if they were losing by less than 1 percent.
The panel on Morning Joe was also very positive about the result. They especially pointed out how many women got elected and how diverse the Congress is going to look like in January
What gets me is most of the votes were like 51-49. They barely won. Some of the dem losses were more like 66-33.
I don't know. I'll ask. She only wrote the one line about it being returned. She didn't have any trouble voting for Hillary two years ago. And whatever FL dems. were up for election then.They may have decided she wasn't eligible to vote because of her Australian citizenship. Or because the name on the ballot didn't match something. The later is the voter suppression tactic of the day.
