The Associated Press has called several of Idaho's top races - it's declared Sen. Mike Crapo a winner, winning a third term in the U.S. Senate; along with 2nd District Rep. Mike Simpson, winning another term in the House; and the AP has declared Gov. Butch Otter the winner in his bid for second term - though only a small fraction of Idaho's votes have been counted. The AP's projection was based on exit polls along with the earliest results.

Democratic candidate for governor Keith Allred, shown here greeting supporters at the Idaho Democratic Party's campaign headquarters at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel in Boise, said of his first run for office, "It's been exciting and a lot more fun than I thought."
