This was an open-seat race, but you wouldn't know it from the results. Democrat Jack Markell has been called by CNN as the winner and judging from the exit polls he has won a dramatic victory.

Markell follows Ruth Ann Minner's Democratic administration, but he positioned himself as an outsider. It worked. Markell pulled off an upset in the Democratic primary. In the general election, he's beating Bill Lee, the same candidate Minner beat in 2004. Markell, though, is winning in a landslide.
