Fat Lady Hasn't Sung Yet

NYTimes: Counts Still Under Way in 6 House Races

But a few more have concluded:

Democrat Darcy Burner
(former Microsoft executive) has conceded to her opponent, incumbent Republican Dave Reichert, in Washington's 8th District. She lost by less than 6,000 votes with more than 220,000 cast. I saw her speak on C-Span and was impressed. Hope she stays in politics and runs again in 2008.

Democrat Jim Courtney won the race in Connecticut's 2nd District by a mere 91 votes out of almost 250,000 cast after a recount. Talk about every vote counting.
