McDonnell Still Leads Big, Corzine Odds Still Surging

With 12% of precincts reporting, Bob McDonnell still holds a wide lead in the Virginia Governor's race, 63.8% to 36.1% for Creigh Deeds (0.1% for write-in candidates.) Still not much from Nothern Virginia, but it is early and the math is already getting extremely hard to even imagine a way that Deeds could potentially win. Expect some network projections within the hour.

In New Jersey, Jon Corzine is still surging in the betting odds, now trading at better than a 3:2 favorite. Reports of high voter turnout (contrary to my personal experience) and a high number of absentee ballots (which have raised a few eyebrows in a state with a history of political corruption, although there is as of yet no evidence of anything amiss.)

Stay tuned...
