Mid-Term Election Day

WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic control of Congress is at stake as voters go to the polls across the country.  Midterm elections usually mean losses for the party in power.  And with voters unhappy about the economy, Republicans appear poised to win more than the 39 seats they need to seize control of the House.  Some analysts are predicting Republicans will win 50 Democratic seats in the House and possibly 60. More than 100 Democratic held seats are currently viewed as in play, including some that were thought to be safe until just recently. To win the Senate, the GOP needs to pick up 10 seats and some analysts say that may be just out of reach. One the GOP would really like to win is Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader harry Reid is fighting for his political life.
