Virginia way too close to call

Hey everyone! I’m tracking results and blogging live from my humble abode, an American University dorm room in our nation’s capital.

CNN just released exit polls that have Virginia in a dead 49%, 49% heat. Northern Virginia is the big swing area of the state.

Both campaigns are looking to Loudon and Henrico counties, as well as the D.C. suburbs, to push the outcome in their direction. Nate Silver of the New York Times gives President Obama a 79.4% chance of winning the state, but as the exit polls show, it’s a tight race… and Democrats certainly can’t declare victory yet.

Much more from D.C. soon!
