According to early exit polls, Andrew Cuomo is the new governor of New York. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer also maintain their spots in the Senate, as was pretty much expected. According to an AP analysis of poll results, three-quarters of moderates supported Cuomo over Paladino. Crazy Carl…we’ll miss you. Sort of.
Meanwhile, NBC News was the first to project that Republicans will win the House by a wide margin (Fox followed suit shortly after, as did CNN). In other news you want to know: Christine O’Donnell has lost to Chris Coons in Delaware.
