Reports are coming in that Joni Ernst has won in Iowa.  [Joni Ernst Wins Election, First Woman To Represent Iowa in US Senate, by Aaron Hepker, 13WHO, November 4, 2014]

This means that the GOP will control the Senate, as they have picked up seats already in Arkansas, Colorado, Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia.

  • North Carolina is still too close to call.
  • Mark Warner has pulled ahead in Virginia as of this writing, but the margin is small (though with votes coming in from Northern Virginia, Gillespie's bid is likely doomed.)
  • Scott Brown's defeat in NH robbed the GOP of a critical flip opportunity.
  • Kansas is still too close to call
  • Alaska won't report until later
  • Louisiana is heading to a runoff
