Races Still Too Close to Call
A handful of races across the country have yet to be decided and some could be headed toward recounts. Gubernatorial races in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, Oregon, and Vermont, as well as U.S. Senate races in Alaska, Colorado, and Washington remain close. Also, three states – Florida, Washington, and Minnesota -- that underwent recounts in the 2000s have chances to show lessons learned this year. UPDATE: The gubernatorial races in Florida, Maine, and Vermont are now settled, and news organizations are declaring a winner in Colorado.
