Rand Paul Wins in Kentucky

Libertarian-leaning Republican Rand Paul has won the Senate seat in Kentucky. As I said in my last post, this was fairly well expected by myself and others, but the fact that the race was called so early is a pretty good indication that there is no sign of an 11th hour surge by the Democrats and that this night is likely to play out as expected...with large GOP gains.

Also called now are South Carolina and Indiana for the GOP and Vermont for the Dems. None of those 3 races were expected to be competitive, although the South Carolina call brings to a close the strange campaign of one Alvin Greene, one of the oddest stories of the 2010 election cycle.
