tammyb@herald-mail.com Barbara Mikulski easily held off a challenge by state Sen. E.J. Pipkin to win a fourth term in the U.S. Senate. With 91 percent of Maryland's precincts reporting, Mikulski led with 64 percent of the vote to 34 percent for Pipkin. Her Republican challenger had hoped to repeat his upset defeat of an established Democrat. Pipkin, who resides in Queen Anne's County, snatched his Eastern Shore Senate seat from longtime Sen. Walter Baker in 2002.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Unofficially, Republican candidate Steve Teufel won his party's nomination during the primary election for Berkeley County Commission against James L. Edwards by a mere six votes. Officially, county election officials will canvass the votes Friday to get a better look at the final total. If the canvassing doesn't resolve the issue, a recount is possible. "I haven't given it (a recount) much thought," said Edwards, 70, of 627 Hammond Mill Road, Hedgesville, W.Va.

Berkeley Co. Commission counts judge ballots again By BOB PARTLOW / Staff Writer, Martinsburg MARTINSBURG, W. Va. - The Berkeley County Commission concluded the fifth counting of ballots in a disputed election for Circuit Court judge Tuesday.

No results changed by the commissioners' count of ballots sent out to polling places but not used on election day in May. The commissioners could not account for 11 uncast ballots, eight of them from one precinct.

History was made Tuesday night. Nov. 4, 2008, will go down as a watershed moment in American history. My fellow Americans, for the first time ever ... ... a female Republican vice presidential candidate lost her bid to move into Number One Observatory Circle. While Sarah Palin (or is it Tina Fey?) watched the results of the election in Arizona, far from her home state of Alaska, I spent Election Night as far away from the election as possible. Since we had a full staff of copy editors at The Herald-Mail on Tuesday night, I got to work on the Money pages for today's newspaper.
