Nail-biter in District 2, perhaps?
With about a quarter of the votes counted, incumbent Chip Baker leads challenger Joe Dumas by a mere 40 votes, 678-638. Obviously this is what Chuck Todd would label "too early to call," but it could be the best race of the night to watch. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: with 40% in, Dumas takes the lead by approximately 53% to Baker's 47%.
In other races, it's not looking too good so far for Greg Beck, as Jim Hammond holds a commanding lead in the race for Sheriff.
Jim Vincent, though, is likely to retake his former House of Representatives seat from Rep. Jim Cobb, if the current trajectory prevails. (I don't have the totals from Rhea County yet, though.)
Oh, and I'm switching to Twitter for further updates. It just makes more sense.
