Democrats actually had a pretty good Election Night in the Mountain and Pacific time zones. Kerry won all three West Coast states handily (including the battleground states of OR & WA), while Democrats did well in both statewide and legislative races. Kerry lost in Nevada and New Mexico by small margins and came pretty close in Colorado -- where Democrats won a Senate seat, a House seat and the state legislature. Republicans did perform well in Arizona, where anti-illegal-immigration Prop 200 probably helped them with turnout. If Democrats continue to be shut out in the South, they may be able to pick up the necessary EVs in some of the Mountain States.
