Some races are still too close to call. Here’s The Daily Caller’s rundown of the 3 messiest races:

Washington Senate: The race for Senate between Republican Dino Rossi and Democratic incumbent Patty Murray has yet to be called. Murray currently holds about a 2 percentage point lead with 70 percent of the precincts reporting

Minnesota governor: This three-way race seems headed for a recount. Democrat Mark Dayton leads Republican Tom Emmer by just under 10,000 votes with 100 percent of the precincts reporting. The Minnesota GOP’s lawyer has held a press conference about the recount, and both sides are preparing for the ensuing legal battle. The independent candidate Tom Horner did fairly well, taking about 12 percent of the vote.

Alaska Senate: With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, write-in candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski appears to be leading, with 41 percent of voters writing in their candidate of choice. The vast majority of write-in votes are presumed to be for  Murkowski, but it will likely take weeks for officials to read and validate the results. Tea Party-backed Republican nominee Joe Miller is in second place with 34 percent of the vote, and Democrat Scott McAdams trails with 24 percent.
