BRUSSELS (AP) - Initial results and exit polls show conservatives racing toward victory in some of Europe's largest economies.
Voters are punishing left-leaning parties in European Parliament
elections Sunday in France, Germany and elsewhere in the 27-nation
First projections by the EU show center-right parties will have the most seats - between 263 and 273 - in the 736-member parliament.
Center-left parties are expected to get between 155 to 165 seats.
Projections show Germany's Social Democrats heading to their worst showing in a nationwide election since World War II. France's Interior Ministry says partial results show the governing conservatives in the lead.
The French results put the Socialists in a distant second and the Europe Ecologie environmentalist party a close third.
