Election Night Tip Sheet

For those who will be watching tonight's returns wanting to know what the results mean for our rights, Dave Kopel of the Independence Institute spoke with NRANews' Cam Edwards recently on the key races to watch.

National Review Online's Jim Geraghty also did a "Quick List of 50 Key Counties" to watch tonight.   Here is what he said about important counties in Virginia:

Prince William County (MAJOR BELLWETHER)
2004: Bush 53–47 2008: Obama 58-42
Obama 93,386 to McCain 67,589
Population: 402,002 Largest community: Dale City

Henrico County
Obama 56-44
Obama 86,262 to McCain 67,340

Loudoun County
Obama 54-46
Obama 74,607 to McCain 63,328

Winchester (independent city, not part of any county, small but useful)
Obama 52-47
Obama 5,268 to McCain 4,725
If Romney does well in the above localities, it could be a good night (at least in Virginia) for Mitt Romney.  Watch this blog tonight for updates on key races will also have wall-to-wall election coverage from 9:00PM until 3:00 AM.
