The race that I'm watching like a hawk tonight is the South Dakota Senate race. Republican John Thune has just pulled ahead of Senator-for-life Tom Daschle for the first time all night. He's 6000 votes ahead now. Now it's a question of where remaining ballots might come from- reservations or rural pockets of the state. I didn't think Daschle could be beaten.
The huge GOP US Senate pick ups may be a bigger story than Bush's likely re-election if things keep going this way.
