A little more good news.

Congrats, Oregon.  Looks like people are gradually waking up to the fact that Merkley is going to be your new Democratic Senator by about 30,000 votes, thanks to all the wonderful people in Multnomah County who still need their votes counted!

Also, The Nation is announcing that Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia has failed to reach 50%, thereby triggering a runoff election between him and Democratic challenger Jim Martin!

President-elect Obama should take advantage of this fact, and get out there and campaign for Martin!

And, of course, there's still the Al Franken race, where a recount could keep things undecided until December. I have to think that there are probably a fair amount of provisional and absentee ballots out there which would tend to benefit Franken, so I wouldn't even suggest that the incumbent Coleman has an advantage.  Coleman, apparently, believes that the outcome of this election is too important to actually count the votes.

So, that's either 56, 57, or 58. Your choice.  Contribute to Martin!
