Sheldon Whitehouse is now the third Democrat to unseat a Republican U.S. Senator tonight, ousting Lincoln Chafee in Rhode Island. The magic number for control of the chamber is now three for the Democrats, with five plausibly winnable races still on the board: Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Montana, and Arizona. The numbers, however, do not look good for Democrat Harold Ford in Tennessee.
