Kathleen, I will have to tell him to drop by the blog! He'll be glad to know he's missed.
We don't know, Kathleen. We hadn't heard that. If we find anything out, we'll let you know.
Here are a few electoral college projection sites that may be of interest:
And, we have a Nick Woltman sighting, ladies and gentlemen!
40 precincts reporting now.
Heitkamp still holds a slim lead.
The "no" votes are leading on Measure 5, and the "yes" votes are up on measures 3 and 4.
Yes, Roger, they usually do. I'm in a remote location, but maybe someone in the newsroom tonight can give us a pizza play-by-play?
The North Dakota Senate race map so far looks like it's going to be mostly blue to the right and mostly red to the left. Burleigh County looks likely to be very important to the results.
Remember earlier we were talking about Nate Silver and Nick Woltman brought up Nates prediction of Berg winning by about 5.5 percentage points. Looks like that may be slightly off unless things change.
With 298 precincts in, Heitkamp is up 51.66 percent to Berg's 47.86 percent.
298 precincts are now in: Heitkamp has 94,504 votes and Berg has 87,549 votes.

Networks have called Presidential race for Obama. Democrats are going to maintain their U.S. Senate majority and possibly increase it depending on how the remaining races go. Also, Republicans will maintain their U.S. House majority.
With 388 precincts in, Heitkamp leads by more than 4,000 votes.
Measure 5 was defeated, about 65 to 35.
Nope, it won about 67 to 33.
I wish I could answer that, Dusty. Actually, if I could answer it, I'd be in bed by now. There are still 38 precincts left to be counted, though Heitkamp has the lead by more than 4,000 votes.
Measure 1 eliminates a poll tax as a possibility under the state constitution. (poll taxes are illegal) It passed, with more than 88 percent in favor so far.
