Hotline Sort: All Over But The Crying

6) And two Senate races have yet to be called: Montana and North Dakota. In North Dakota, 100 percent of precincts are reporting, and Democrat Heidi Heitkamp leads GOP Rep. Rick Berg by about 3,000 votes -- but Berg has not conceded and said he would wait for results from the official vote canvassing. And in Montana, with 67 percent reporting, Democratic Sen. Jon Tester leads GOP Rep. Denny Rehberg by over 3 percentage points. 5) With the caveat that Montana and North Dakota's results remain uncertain -- Democrats are poised to pick up two Senate seats with wins in Massachusetts, where Democrat Elizabeth Warren beat GOP Sen. Scott Brown, Indiana, where Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly beat GOP Treasurer Richard Mourdock, and Maine (though it's not certain that Independent former Gov. Angus King will caucus with Democrats, most expect him to). 4) And speaking of that, Politico reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has already called King. 3) Meanwhile, the GOP won Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson's Senate seat in Nebraska, where GOP state Sen. Deb Fischer beat former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey. 2) Other competitive Senate races where Democrats emerged victorious include Wisconsin, Connecticut, and Missouri. And Republicans notched wins in Nevada and Arizona. 1) President Obama defeated Mitt Romney to win a second term in office.
