PLEASE FILL IN RESULTS AS YOU HEAR THEM:

Hotline Spotlight: The Reveal (Hotline, November 2, 2010)

-- The Canaries. Reps. Ben Chandler (D-KY), Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Baron Hill (D-IN) all face the nation's earliest closing times. If all 3 go down, Republicans can start popping champagne. But if either of the Indiana Democrats survive, the GOP should stop counting chickens.

-- The Enthusiasm Gap. Keep an eye on Reps. Barney Frank (D-MA) Tom Perriello (D-VA) and Sanford Bishop (D-GA). If Frank wins in a blowout, labor turned on their base. If Perriello doesn't get stomped, President Obama fired up the troops. And if Bishop wins a surprisingly competitive race, African Americans re-engaged even without Obama on the ballot. Then again, if these races break the other way, it's an early sign that Dems just didn't care enough to vote.
