Election Night Blogging Hiatus

As indicated earlier, I’m planning on a long night, so it’s time for a nap break. I’ll be back no later than 7:00 PM EST to resume occasional commentary.

If you are making your own plans for following the returns tonight, I’d recommend turning off the tube and taking advantage of the many online resources. I’d obviously like it if you’d check in here now and then, but I’ll be relying on Daily Kos Elections plus Twitter, especially Harry Enten (@ForecasterEnten), Nate Silver (@NateSilver538), Nate Cohn (@Nate_Cohn), Sean Trende (@SeanTrende), and Cook Political Report’s Jennifer Duffy (@jenniferduffy) and David Wasserman (@redistrict), and also Sam Wang (@SamWangPhD).

We’ll go into snooze mode with this final Last Waltz video: one of my favorite Band songs, “It Makes No Difference,” which is largely what I think of this midterm cycle.
