Will be looking forward to the results show! I am guessing James Rubin's show will be a build up to the actual thing?

I wonder how long Martin Stanford is on for after midnight? I didn't think he'll do the 8-10 show tonight.

Could someone detail Sky's coverage please? Did they have any presenters in the US or all presented from the UK? Which reporters were covering it?



I would have watched it myself, but I have no TV at the moment!

In Sky Centre, they had Martin Stanford, Tim Marshall and Time Magazine's Jef McAllister. From Washington, Ashish Joshi and James Rubin. They also had a former member of Reagan's administration, Jim Pinkerton debating for the Republicans with Ellen Ratner a Democrat strategist obviously debating for the Democrats. They used FOX coverage throughout the night, as well as a graphic showing which senator had won which states.
