A Very Special Election

Polls closed 15 minutes ago in eastern South Dakota, and will close in 45 minutes in western South Dakota, in the closely-watched special election to fill that state's vacant at-large House seat. My sense is that Democrat Stephanie Herseth is still the likely winner, though the polls have tightened up quite a bit. Either way, this has less bearing on the November Daschle vs. Thune senate race than many assume; more on that tomorrow, when I'll have a post-mortem on AmSpec.

You can watch the results come in here.
