LA-2: "Cautiously Optimistic"

Yes, it's what nearly every campaign says going into the fateful hour returns begin to come in. There's almost 1 hour and 45 minutes until the polls close and the Carter campaign HQ is full of life and energy. To be honest, most of my coverage from today is embargoed until after the polls close, but I have a good amount of turnout information I can share soon along with photos/video from the "War Room" that should give a very interesting peak into a side of campaigns most people never get to see.
Back to it for me. Oh! You all win; I'll be heading to the party instead of monitoring returns from my hotel room. I hope there is internet access in the ballroom ... fingers crossed.Update (Chris): In the event that Tim is unable to be online, I will be here to monitor returns. The polls close at 9 eastern, 8 central. Right now, it is 8:30 eastern. You can follow returns here, and see the results from November here. Based on those numbers, Orleans parish is clearly Carter's stronghold. Perhpas approrpiately, Jefferson parish is Jefferson's stronghold.
Update 2 (Chris): The Secretary of State website is here.
