Close elections UPDATE

Go-to numbers guru Nate Silver says the Democrat, Murphy, appears to be favored by the origins of the absentee ballots yet to be counted in that squeaker of a New York special congressional race.

And it's just about over for Norm Coleman in Minnesota, though the Republican Party undoubtedly is prepared to attempt to litigate this forever to deprive the state of its rightful senator, Al Franken.

UPDATE: Final ballots counted. It's Franken by 312 votes.
