At just past midnight, only about half the votes are in in the 9th district Congressional race.
It's a down-to-the wire battle between Democratic incumbent Gary Peters, and Rocky Raczkowski, a Republican with strong Tea Party ties.
Peters holds a slight edge, but it's still too close to call.
Peters just rallied a flagging crowd here at this Troy headquarters. He struck an optimistic tone even as he acknowledged the race remains tight.
