The GOP Wave last night may prove to be even bigger as numbers continue to roll in for a huge swath of yet-undecided races across the country which were too close to call last night.
The number of races still outstanding include two Senate races (VA and AK), 18 House races, and six governor races, many of which look to go red, according to Roll Call.
Among the governors races too close to call are Colorado, Vermont, Connecticut and Alaska.
Sen. Mark Warner has declared victory in Virginia though Republican Ed Gillespie has yet to concede since the race is within the 1% margin for a recount.
In the race for Alaska’s junior Senate seat, Republican Dan Sullivan holds the lead 49 to Mark Begich’s 45 points with nearly all precincts reporting.
But, at this time Mark Begich is refusing to concede the race to Sullivan according to Alaska Dispatch News. In what nearly all predicted would be among the certain pickups for the Republican Party, Sullivan led Begich in the polls for at least two weeks leading up to yesterday’s elections.
When the results in the race are finally certified, Sullivan’s victory will add an eighth state to the number of pickups by the Republican Party in yesterday’s electoral bloodbath.
According to election officials, however, that may not come until next week after tens of thousands of absentee ballots will have been counted to arrive at a final result. Though those ballots are not expected to change the current margin enough to give Begich a surprise victory.
