Senate: McCaskill Beats Akin (MO), Berkley-Heller (NV) Too Close to Call

The strangest Jew v. Jew race in the country pits Nevada Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Shelley Berkley vs. former mentor-turned-nemesis Sheldon Adelson’s money backing GOP incumbent Dean Heller to the hilt – the polls showed Heller leading, but it’s too close to call.

Senate incumbent Claire McCaskill (D) beats Republican challenger Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin.

Montana Senate incumbent Jon Tester (D) was expected to lose, but the race is too close to call.
