AZ-5 Hayworth - NOT A LOSS YET, NOT AT ALL.
KFYI 550AM | 11-8-06 | Me

Posted on 11/08/2006 12:07:45 PM PST by Gribbles141

Heard on the radio here just now that there are roughly about 100,000 mail-in ballots still to be counted, and roughly 50,000 of those were brought to the polls yesterday. And with the race being this close: Mitchell - 71,077 - 51% Hayworth - 65,122 - 46% and with Hayworth not yet conceeding, its possible we could hold this seat.

Can you give us a link or something, so we don't think this is just BS?

Indeed, they reported roughly 100,000 on the radio, he represents a pretty populated district.

100,000 mail-in ballots, and 136,000 live voting ballots? That's a high percentage of mail-ins!

It would be nice to see the absentees break 60/40 to JD. As you know, the Communist Crook Mitchell has not declared victory.

Those numbers don't seem right.

That is the total for the state. Only some of them are for his district race.

Yeah, the number sounds huge. I thought I heard something about 100,000 to 200,000 absentee and provisional ballots STATEWIDE in VA for Senate. So its odd that there would be that many for a single house seat. It may refer to the total of absentee ballots, without singling out those which were cast for Hayworth's district.

Question: once a candidate concedes, the opponent wins even though the opponent finally gets less number of votes?.

The fact that he didn't concede is good. Contrary to what I think most people belive, conceding has no legal bearing on the outcome (at least in most states). It generally means that the candidate won't contest the outcome and send his legal eagles in.

That is a very unfair comment about Bush and what he said during his press conference. He didn't say he was going to agree with Pelosi on everything but that he would talk with her and find "areas of agreement." That doesn't mean he will "roll over for anything Pelosi wants." Not in my book anyway. By saying this the Rats will have a hard time selling the idea that Bush is not interested in anything but gridlock.

Aren't all districts roughly the same in population except for those states that have only one?

You mean like Algore in 2000?

Concessions can be retracted.

I just got an email from Cathi Herrod about Prop. 107 and she said there are as many as 300-400,000 still NOT COUNTED.

We can hope!!!

Thanks for the ray of hope. I will pray for him...and our country.

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like we will recover either Sen. Rick Santorum or Cong. Curt Weldon in Pennsylvania. We also lost Cong. Gil Gutnecht here in Minnesota. At least we got Michelle Bachman in against a formidable Name. And my 2nd term congressmen handily smashed the liberal "whistle blower" phony that was put up against him.

Thank God.

No, a concession is simply a way to make nice to your opponent. It does not alter the final outcome.
