DiA signs off for the night and brings us up to speed:
The Republicans have won at least 60 seats in the House, surpassing their total from 1994. John Boehner is your new speaker. In the Senate, Republicans have gained at least six seats, with close races still to be called in Colorado, Washington and Alaska. Harry Reid and the Democrats retain control of that chamber. In the states, the GOP has picked up eight governorships, with results in many states still coming in.
The '94 revolution resulted in a net gain of 54 seats in the House and eight in the Senate, causing both chambers to swing to the GOP.
