5:38 PM PT: NC-Gov has been called for Republican Pat McCrory over Dem Walter Dalton, as expected.

5:41 PM PT: CNN calls VA-02 for GOP Rep. Scott Rigell. Not a surprise.

5:41 PM PT: In FL-18, 25% in, and a bunch of earlies, and Dem Patrick Murphy is up 51-49 over Rep. Allen West (R).

When state lawmakers redrew the boundaries of Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District this year, Republican Sen. Alice Forgy Kerr of Lexington dubbed the bill the "Ben Chandler Lifetime Employment Act."

5:44 PM PT (James L): Per Politico, GOP Rep. Steve Southerland has shot out to a huge 60-40 lead over Dem Al Lawson in FL-02 with 49% reporting.

5:44 PM PT: NJ-Sen has been called for Dem Sen. Bob Menendez over Republican Joe Kyrillos. Thank god, because somehow I got on Kyrillos's spam list and his emails make me lose the will to live.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
