THE CONFEDERACY.

HE'S THE WINNER THERE.

A LOT OF THE ELECTORAL VOTES.

MICHIGAN, 15 ELECTORAL VOTES IT'S MITT ROMNEY'S, ONE OF MITT ROMNEY'S HOME STATES.

MOST PRESINGS REPORTING, WE'RE GOING TO CALL THAT FOR BARACK OBAMA.

[CROWD CHEERING]

IT'S A SHAME THAT THAT CAR PULLED OUT RIGHT BY THAT.

WE'VE GOT AN INTERESTING SENATE RACE TO REPORT.

WON THE SENATE RACE.
