ELECTION NIGHT GUIDE UPDATE: DEMOCRATS SEARCHING FOR 60 (IN THE SENATE)

Kentucky: It looks like Mitch McConnell has defeated Bruce Lunsford and the Democrats' attempt to topple the Republican leadership in the Senate.

Georgia: Though it is not final, Republican incumbent Saxby Chambliss enjoys a substantial lead against his challenger, Jim Martin and looks to be well enough ahead, with 73 percent of precincts reporting, to claim it.

New Hampshire: In this anticipated rematch of the 2002 Senatorial race, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen has earned MSNBC and CNN's prestigious "check-mark of victory" over Republican incumbent John Sununu, with only 46 percent of precincts reporting so far.

North Carolina: Here is an anxiously anticipated upset: Kay Hagan seems to have beaten Elizabeth Dole, with 85 percent of precincts reporting, to conquer the Senate seat held previously by Jesse Helms.

Minnesota: The jury is still out on a close race in Minnesota. At this moment, CNN has Democratic challenger Al Franken just two points ahead of Republican incumbent Norm Coleman.
