Washington Examiner Election Night Guide: What to look for hour-by-hour

Tuesday's election results could show an historic shift in power in Congress, but the returns don't all come in at the same time, so how to know what to watch for and when?

That's the question expertly answered by The Examiner's online editor David Freddoso, who has compiled a comprehensive look at which races to look for as the polls close from the East coast to the west. For example, at 7:30 pm EST, polls close in the key battleground state of Ohio, with an important governor's race and at least seven contests up for grabs that Republicans must do well in if they are to regain control in the House.

But Ohio is far from the only important state in which polls close at 7:30 pm. There's also North Carolina, Illinois, Connecticut, West Virginia and Delaware, among others, with vitally important Senate races in all five of those states. If GOPers Christine O'Donnell in Delaware or Linda McMahon in Connecticut are winning, it's going to be a very long night indeed for the Democrats.

Check it out here for the complete guide, hour-by-hour, race-by-race.
