Ken Mehlman is as upbeat this morning as Karl Rove was last night. Concurs with Rove re: Michigan and Montana. Issued the standard warning about exit polling release at 5 PM, confirmed the problems in New Mexico, and noted that Dems have the “voting irregularities” talking points spread far and wide.
Noted the absentees in TN –about 40% of total vote–definitely favor Corker. Excellent turnout in VA.
No brash talk, but I heard some understated confidence. Geraghty et al will be posting on the call as well. Compare notes.
