It’s Tuesday November 2nd, Election Day in America. All of the stumping1, debating,mudslinging comes down to this, the stakes are huge, control of Capital Hill, the future of the president’s agenda, and today, we as Americans decide our path forward. Millions of voters heading to the polls, now opening 42 states and D.C., up for grabs 37 Senate seats, and all 435 House seats, it’s a lot of races, but control of Washington hinges on two magic numbers, 10 and 39. Republicans need 10 extra seats to claim the Senate majority, on the House side, they need 39.

So coast to coast, candidates are still stumping, knocking on doors calling supporters ,working to get every last potential voters to the polls. We’ve dispatched the best political team on television, the key races across the country to track the latest developments, and what it all means for you.

Jim Acosta, in Nevada. David, in Florida, Carol Costello, in Ohio, and our Drew Griffin, in Alaska. Now more than $3.5 billion have been spent, making this the most expensive midterm campaign ever, historic spending as some big time political players fight for their future, the most powerful man in the senate, majority leader Harry2 Reid is in a dead heat with Republican challenger Sharron Angle in Nevada, in fact ,Michelle Obama swung through Las Vegas yesterday, and their hug is front page news in the review journal. Now Jim Acosta is live in Las Vegas, Jim,how are things looking out there right now.

Well, Cara, you know, there was no bigger political jackpot for the Republicans than the prospect3 of taking down Harry Reid, not only is he the Senate majority leader, he is one of the architects of the Obama agenda, and his oppnent in this race , the Tea Party backed for Republican Sharron Angle, she is giving Harry Reid the fight of his life. The latest polls show she is perhaps couple of points ahead, Democrats5 feel pretty good about the early voting so far, they think that might favor Harry Reid so far in this race. As you mentioned, both of these candidates are really trying to fire up these, their base in these last hours of the campaign. Harry Reid had Michelle Obama , perhaps the most popular Democrat4 in the country campaigning for him. Sharron Angle spent the last 24 hours doing a lot of interviews with conservative talk radio in on FOX News. So both trying to work up and excited their base, but don’t count on Harry Reid just yet, keep in mind back in 1998, he won an election in this state and Senate, by less than 500 votes, but he is doing more than just battling Sharron Angle in this race, he is battling this economy.Not only does Nevada have the distinction of having the highest unemployment rate in the country, it also has highest foreclosure rate. So Harry Reid is fighting this election battle on all fronts, and on top of all of that, you have to keep in mind this is a crowed ballot6, not only do you have Harry Reid and Sharron Angle's names on the ballot, you also have Tea Party candidate named Scott Ashijan and something called none of the above, people can actually vote for none of the above in the state, and they are probably going to do that, the polls close at 7 o'clock, and we will be watching .
