AP Calls Senate Races for Angus King in ME, Bill Nelson in FL
Two Senate races that were stretches for Republicans have now been called for Democrats or those who will caucus with them, according to the Associated Press. Former Maine Governor Angus King, whom Breitbart News has covered extensively due to his corrupt ties to stimulus funding for wind projects with which he is associated, will take Olympia Snowe’s seat in Maine, flipping a Republican seat to the declared independent — although King will caucus with the Democrats. In Florida, Connie Mack has been defeated by Bill Nelson, preventing a Republican pick-up in a race Republicans needed to make a run for Senate control. Overall, Republicans were expected to lose both races going in.
