CNN projects Risch will win Senate race in Idaho

(CNN) - CNN projects that Republican Lt. Gov. Jim Risch will defeat Democratic former Rep. Larry LaRocco for the Senate race in Idaho.

Risch will replace retiring senator and fellow Republican Larry Craig, whose arrest in a police sting operation in a Minneapolis airport bathroom made his Senate post one of the most closely watched in 2007.

CNN projections are based on exit poll data from key areas.

    Well, we can't have everything tonight. Frankly, a Dem winning a Senate seat here in Idaho is even *more* unlikely than an African-American winning the presidency.

    So maybe next time...but for now: whoo-hoo!!! President(-elect) Obama has a really nice ring to it!
