Hotline Sort: All Over But The Crying
Welcome back to Hotline Sort. President Obama wins a second term, Democrats hold their Senate majority and Republicans keep the House majority, Warren defeats Brown, and a number of races have yet to be called.
13) In Massachusetts' 4th District, Democrat Joe Kennedy III easily beat GOP opponent Sean Bielat -- but the Republican won't rule out a future run for office just yet. Bielat: "It's like asking a woman that just came out of the delivery room if she's going to have another baby."
12) Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., not winning gracefully: He called Democratic opponent Mark Murphy "despicable" for his campaign. He also said that, though Murphy has not yet conceded, he "wouldn't take his concession call, even if he called."
11) 2016 hint from Vice President Biden? Biden, on whether Tuesday would be the last time he casts a ballot for himself: "No, I don't think so."
10) Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., conceded in his expensive, nasty member-vs.-member race with fellow Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman earlier this morning.
9) In the middle of last night, it seemed like Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., would lose her reelection bid -- but she hung on and eeked out a win.
Meanwhile, another of the House's biggest personalities, Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., is trailing by less than a point in his reelection bid with 100 percent reporting. That race has yet to be called.
8) Though we don't have exact numbers yet with a number of races still to be called, the GOP will hold the House.
7) Still waiting for results in two big governor's races: Montana and Washington. In Washington, the all-mail race may continue until Friday.
