As the popular vote mounted to dizzy heights, heading 1 for 40,000,000 or more, the returns from congressional races indicated the Democrats would hold the next Senate by a majority of a score at least, while clinching their of the House with a possible two-thirds of the 435 ship. 472 Votes For Gov.
