Looks like there's still no winner declared in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, as far as I can tell. Here's the last update from the Times Argus at 1:37 a.m., when Shumlin is leading Racine by 84 votes, with 234 of 260 precincts counted.

We did get some results:

  • Doug Hoffer bested Ed Flanagan in the Democratic auditor's race.
  • Republican Phil Scott and Democrat Steve Howard will face off in the lt. guv race.
  • Paul Beaudry will face off against Rep. Peter Welch in November.
  • Senator Leahy cruised to victory against cow-rider Daniel Freilich.
  • The Free Press has a round-up of Chittenden County state senate results.
  • The AP posts their most up-to-date town-by-town results on this page.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our live blog last night! That was fun.

More info as we have it...
