Reporter Tom Weber is stationed at the Capitol building in St. Paul tonight. He sends along this shot from the DFL "war room." He writes:
"Staffers for the DFL House caucus pour over computer election results at the State Office Building in St. Paul. The DFL staffers are two floors above where GOP staffers are doing the same."
UPDATE: I should note that they're waiting for legislative results. Tom Weber reports that the DFL is expected to maintain a majority in the state house. We're now waiting to see whether or not they'll win 90 seats, which would give the DFL a veto-proof supermajority.
