Dems Earn Decisive Win in the House, Senate Too Close to Call

The long night behind us, let's see what we know.

House: Democrats +27

Democrats have won the following GOP-held House seats:

* CT-05
* FL-16
* FL-22
* IN-02
* IN-08
* IN-09
* KY-03
* NC-11
* NH-01
* NH-02
* NY-20
* NY-24
* OH-18
* PA-07
* PA-10
* AZ-05
* PA-04
* KS-02
* IA-01
* TX-22
* WI-08
* NY-19
* MN-01
* CO-07
* IA-02
* CA-11
* AZ-08

There are also a handful of races not yet called by the Associated Press due to the closeness of the margins. They include: CT-02, GA-08, GA-12, NM-01, PA-06, PA-08, WY-AL and WA-08.

Senate: Democrats +4

Democrats have now officially won GOP-held seats in : Pennsylvania, Ohio, Rhode Island and Missouri.

Two major races remain uncalled -- in Montana and Virginia -- although Democrats lead in each, according to results from the AP. In Montana, state Sen. Jon Tester (D) is ahead of Sen. Conrad Burns (R) by roughly 1,700 votes. In Virginia, former Navy Secretary Jim Webb (D) leads Sen. George Allen (R) by around 8,000 votes.

IF those results hold, Democrats will have shocked the world and retaken the Senate.

Governors: Democrats +6

Democrats took over control in the following states: Arkansas, Colorado, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Iowa.
