Election Results Live-Blog VI: Last Big Wave of Poll Closings

* Big news: Massachusetts Senate called for Elizabeth Warren, Indiana Senate race called for Joe Donnelly. Republicans have probably lost the Senate.

* Wolf really aiming at low-information voters: “Look at this–Texas–all 38 votes for Mitt Romney.”

* Michigan called immediately for Obama. Remember when that was the state that would “expand the battleground?” But no calls in MN, WI, AZ, NM and CO. But initial exits have Obama up 3 in WI, 4 in MN, 9 in NM; Romney up 5 in AZ. Colorado dead even in exits.

* House called for GOP. Zero surprise.

* Assuming Mitt loses in PA, OH and WI, is there still a path to 270? Yeah, just barely: he’d have to win NC, VA, FL, IA , NH, CO and NV.

* Wolf freaks out as Mitt pulls slightly ahead in Florida with 76% in. We’ll have to wait for someone else to explain where the vote is still out.

* Bob Casey projected Senate winner in Pennsylvania: yet another state where GOPers were claiming a “wave” would get them a seat.

* Markos Moulitsas notes that Romney’s Super-PAC spent $4.5 million in Michigan over the last three weeks.

* John King finally tells us that 55% of the vote in Broward County, and 85% of the vote in Miami-Dade, are still out. So the Romney Surge in Florida is very tentative.

* Looking back at Virginia, Romney currently leads Obama by four points with two percent going to minor-party candidates. Allen leads Kaine by just two in the Senate race.

* Wow. In some locations in Virginia, voting hours extended until 11:00 PM. That one (and the Senate race) could go really late, or until tomorrow.

* Wolf freaks out again when raw vote shows Mitt up in Florida by 600 votes. “Could this be 2000 again?” No, Wolf.
