Mara - you can still sign in to Scribble Live from home, FYI.
I'm still only seeing 407 precincts.
The remaining precincts to be reported are in Barnes County (15), McKenzie County (2), Mercer County (1) and Williams County (1)
I have a feeling we won't hear anything until the president finishes his speech.
I love that two people just voted that they are already asleep. That's how I feel, too.
Mara Van Ells and I just decided that we're going to stick around the blog for about 10 more minutes. Then, we need sleep. So, get your comments in quick.
Valley News Live's Robert Hahn just tweeted this: "Berg watch party empty. Press trained on his room for his exit. Maybe a speech. Maybe not."
Give me some more details, Fred, if you can.
We still have no idea when the race will be final.
KFYR-TV just reported Heitkamp's speech/appearance has been pushed back.
I'm still up for awhile. I don't have access to much, but I can approve comments for awhile longer if there's anybody left. Everyone was great today! Good work all!
To recap where we are right now, there are 408 precincts out of 426 reporting. Heidi Heitkamp has a 50.25 percent to 49.31 percent lead over Rick Berg, which amounts to about 2,900 votes.
Thanks, Jason. Thank you readers/watchers. It's been a fun and productive night, with a lot of good feedback and analysis.
With that, I'm going to sleep.
Jason, you have access to the SOS website?
Yes I do. I've been updating the banner on our front page. I just don't have access to local tv.
Ok, cool. If you are up when the final precincts come in, would you want to send out a tweet from bistrib?
I'm going to hit refresh one more time......
Sure. I hope they come quick tho. Even I'm fading. ;)
I'm sorry, I should have been more specific. I was a little confused when you responded I thought maybe Jason Heupel responded twice from different accounts.
Goodnight everyone! Thanks for the great discussion.
409 reporting on SOS. Heitkamp lead to 3,116.
Chris Van Guilder, Berg Comm. Director, says they are waiting until results are certified.
