NBC News and several other news outlets have projected Sen. Obama as the winner in Pennsylvania, which isn't a deal-killer for Sen. McCain but it is close to one. Without Pennsylvania:
Unless another blue state flips to Republican hands, McCain now must win every remaining battleground state to overtake Obama. Also, a stinging?loss for McCain in New Hampshire, where McCain's primary victory in January jumpstarted his flagging campaign in early 2008. NBC projects the Granite State, where Obama lost his own primary bid to Hillary Clinton, to go into the Democrat's column tonight.
Republicans, who had small hopes that tonight's results might not be the rout polling projected it would be, must be losing all hope at this point.
