IS IT OVER? Fox News called Ohio for Bush less than 15 minutes ago - at 12:41:20, as Brit Hume portentously announced. Was Fox the first? I'm not sure. I do know that NBC has not called it yet. But Fox's call seems to be well founded - right now, Bush is leading Kerry by about 140,000 in Ohio, and holds a 51 percent to 48 percent lead with 83 percent of the precincts in.
Alaska's in the bag for Bush, which will put him over the top even if he loses Nevada and New Mexico to Kerry.
So yes. It's over. With an asterisk, I suppose.
