Radioactive: Election Night in America (Part 2)

Welcome back to ANN's coverage of election night in America. 

First off, We can easily call the state of West Virginia for Rubio.
----------

Antother easy victory tonight is Connecticut, which will go for Gillibrand.
----------

Alabama will contribute its 9 electoral votes to Rubio’s total, as expected.
----------

Illinois is another state which can be called for Gillibrand. It has voted solidly Democrat and will continue to do so tonight.
----------

Maryland is yet another solid victory for Gillibrand.
----------

Mississippi is another easy victory, this one for Rubio and the GOP.
----------

We can also call Massachusetts, voting solidly Democratic as expected.
----------

New York, Gillibrand's home state, will remain solidly in her column.
----------

Delaware will remain solidly Democratic tonight as well.
----------

Oklahoma will also remain solidly GOP, as expected. No possible threat from Huntsman since third parties are not allowed on the ballot here.
----------

Tennessee is another fairly easy victory for Rubio. Interesting however is the fact that Huntsman will likely pull second place.
----------

Our first big call of the night is a rather easy Huntsman victory in the state of New Hampshire. He will win the first electoral votes for any non Democrat or Republican since George Wallace in 1968.
----------

New Jersey and its 14 electoral votes will go for Gillibrand tonight. Huntsman has had a decent showing, and it is yet to be seen if he will beat out the GOP for a second place finish in the state.
----------

At this time, we can also call Virginia for the Democrats. This was somewhat expected, but the GOP still put up a decent fight in the state.
----------

The final call for this round of poll closings will be Maine’s 2nd district going for Huntsman. This was relatively expected, but it still makes history by being the first time Maine has had to split its electoral vote based on district.
----------

Rhode Island is too close to call. The race was always between Gillibrand and Huntsman for the state, but it is somewhat of a surprise to see Huntsman do this well.
----------

Florida is too close to call at this time. Rubio is popular in his home state, but it has voted Democratic in the past three elections and Huntsman, while he can’t win in the state, could spoil it.
----------

North Carolina is also too close to call. Gillibrand has been campaigning heavily to flip the state and the Democrats have hoped that her campaign was not in vain.
----------

Ohio is too close to call. A three way fight guarantees no call until rather late tonight.
----------

Maine At-Large is too close to call, a close fight between Huntsman and Gillibrand.
----------

The last state for this round of closings, Pennsylvania, is too close to call. The GOP historically has decent turnout that prevents an easy Democratic victory in the state.

Here is the electoral map. Gillibrand has pulled a lead, but the night is still young.
