Update

Here's what we are hearing:

The 67th District is having a large minority turnout. This could be in response to the "Africans will have sex with anything with a pulse" quote.

Inside Republicans are calling this race for Chuck Caputo. Chris Craddock shouldn't be counted out yet though- and he is showing his brass by standing at Waples Mill Elem. school so far today- the home of Caputo and Gary Reese. Craddock also has a better effort on the ground.

The 68th turnout is higher in Chesterfield then Richmond City, which benefits Brad Marrs over Katherine Waddell. But Richmond City turnout usually picks up around 3 p.m., so don't read too much into that yet.

Republicans are abuzz that Dick Black could be finished. Kaine is doing well there, and that is squeezing Black hard, and might just hand David Poisson an upset victory.

Turnout in SW Virginia is strong, Jerry Kilgore must be pleased with that. Northern Virginia is also strong, Tim Kaine must be pleased with that.

Light but steady at Retreat Hospital in Richmond's Fan District. They expected a late afternoon/early evening crush.

No Rs there or at Fox Elementary, some low-key Dems.

Craddock's ground game collapsed today. All that "free" help he relied on with the high school kids (who of course, couldn't vote for him, and their parents WOULDN'T vote for him) evaporated this week.

A lot of vote splitting went on in the 67th today in favor of Caputo. And, the demographics are slowly changing from a Vanilla district to a very light to medium cream color. We saw this trend start in November 2004. The straight Dem ticket took almost every precinct in Sully. Practically unheard of before now.
