The second of four articles on Election Nightmare Scenarios deals with the possibilities that party control of the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate may not be determined until weeks after Election Day. Between the chances of December run-off elections in Louisiana and re-counts in other states (and even the possibility of a re-count of a run-off election), the battle for control of Congress may go on for weeks and months after Election Day.
