Seeking Sixty

FiveThirtyEight on how the Senate is shaping up:

Mark Udall wins easily in Colorado. Mark Begich will defeat the convicted tubes guy. Landrieu has escaped in Louisiana. That’s 57 seats.

Minnesota,Oregon,Mississippi and Georgia have not been called. Democrats will need to win three of those to get to 60 votes,and all four to get to a Lieberman-proof,filibuster-proof majority.

Minnesota Public Radio has the race at Coleman 42.1%,Franken 41.7%,Barkley 15.3% with 87% of precincts reporting. Coleman’s lead amounts to just under 10,000 votes.
