UPDATE on Virginia race.

The Democrats are very likely to get the Senate but there is a bit of confusion depending on what you read.
The Associated Press and MSNBC, declared Webb the winner of the election tonight with a roughly 6,700-vote margin out of more than 2.3 million ballots cast, or less than one-half of 1 percent.
But George Allen (R) has not conceded yet.

State officials were conducting a rapid recanvass of the vote as part of the process of formally certifying the result. That process could be done as early as Thursday afternoon, officials said.A senior aide to Allen said tonight that the senator would not comment on the election until the canvass was completed.
