With early returns showing a slight margin in favor of an amendment to ban same-sex marriage, several news organizations have already called the race.

A constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Virginia appears to be passing. With about 68% of precincts reporting, the margin was around 58% in favor of the ban.

Also in Virgina, Democrat Jim Webb--a best-selling author, Vietnam marine, and former Republican--was just ahead of the incumbent, Sen. George Allen in early returns. The race once seemed a shoo-in for Allen. But now he's fighting for his life after a series of campaign gaffes and errors.
