Mood 'tense' at Allen campaign headquarters
RICHMOND, Virginia (CNN) -- A senior advisor to Sen. George Allen says 60 percent of Northern Virginia votes have been counted and that the results are "not as bad" as the Republican senator expected.

He made this claim in response to a statement from New York Sen. Chuck Schumer that Democratic-friendly Northern Virginia had not been counted yet.

Still, the senior Allen adviser admits turnout in the northern part of the state was "very high," so the other 40 percent of the region's vote that has not been counted could be problematic for the Republican incumbent.

Several Allen advisers say the senator is in a suite upstairs at the Richmond Marriott and that the mood is very "tense," though these advisers are hopeful the incumbent can eke out a victory.
