Virginia, which hasn’t voted for a Democrat in at least 20 years, has been considered a possible steal for Sen. Barack Obama tonight. MSNBC reports that Obama has a huge advantage among black voters according to exit polls, getting 91 percent of the black vote in the state. Sen. John McCain has a sizeable lead among white voters, and the network has not projected a victor in the contest yet. McCain has a small lead at the moment.

Indiana is currently too close to call as well, and the network reports that McCain leads by only 3 percent. The state has 11 electoral votes up for grabs, and Obama made a last minute stop there today. It has been a red state in recent history.

Kentucky has been called for McCain, while Vermont is projected to go to Obama. Both outcomes were generally expected based on voting history and poll numbers.
