Here's the official site for returns...anyone have a better one?
“Indiana Primary Returns”
I didn’t know it left....
(I crack myself up!)
First returns are from Allen (Coats home) and Miami counites:
Don Bates, Jr. 223
Richard Behney 221
Dan Coats 5479
John N. Hostettler 1072
Marlin A. Stutzman 3101
Appreciate updates. I am not a Coates fan, but if he wins the primary, we gotta capture this seat.
First County 100% In (Wells, South of Ft. Wayne)
Coats 49.3% Stutzman 37.6
Stutzman concentrated almost all of his media in the Indianapolis Market over the last few days.
Currently Coats is leading. U.S. Senate GOP - Primary -- 1,481 of 5,306 precincts reporting (28%)
Dan Coats 73,626 42%
Marlin A. Stutzman 52,546 30%
John Hostettler 33,872 20%
Richard Behney 6,642 4%
Don Bates 6,988 4%
On a sad note, IN is going to get the govt they deserve. In our precinct as of 5:00 PM; (according to hubby who voted then) only 211 out of 5-10 K people had bothered to vote. Pathetic.
It’s the same across the state I’m afraid. There were more poll workers than voters at my polling place at 4:00 P.M.
He did win Marion Co
I hope the People’s Republic of Lake County comes in strong for Stutzman
Messer pulls nearly even with Burton in 5th District race
Coats is a solid conservative and I would enthusiastically support him in the fall election. He is the establishment candidate, however, and the primary election is our opportunity to send the RNC a message.
Yep, absolutely. Coats represented us well 10 years ago, voted conservatively, definitely wasn’t a Lugar. We could do a whole lot worse. An Ellsworth win would be a whole lot worse!
But you’re right we could have sent an anti-estab. anti-D.C. message and we didn’t.
But then again based on our precinct NOBODY bothered to even vote! So its no wonder. We’re losing our freedom and people can’t be bothered to get up off the couch for 15 min. to go select the best candidate to run in November?!? Words fail me.
Coats ran for the exit when Elegant Evan Bayh came on the scene. I’ll support him in the general but without much enthusiasm. He’s a Wash DC insider, the kind we really needed to avoid.
I know. Doesn’t bode well for November IMO.
Coats has been poo-poo’d on talk radio all over the state, he is a rino ...
The government's "War on Intelligent Citizens" is a huge success.
And you have to give credit to the NEAA also, for dumbing down America so that kids come out of school knowing practically nothing about our Republic, or how it functions.
If "THE END IS NEAR, we will know for certain after the November 2010 elections.
Coats has a lifetime ACU rating of 90; not perfect, but solidly conservative.
The establishment candidates mostly won, though not by the margins they are accustomed to winning.
Dan Coats won the primary wtih 39% of the vote for the U.S. Senate.
In District 4, Todd Rokita won a multiple-candidate primary with 40%.
In District 5, Dan Burton was barely renominated with 30% of the vote. Now he can go back to missing votes to play golf with lobbyists.
In Distict 8, NRCC recruit/heart surgeon Larry Buchon barely outpolled Tea Party candidate Kristi Risk 32% to 29%.
District 9 was the exception. Mike Sodrel finished in third place in the multi-candidate primary. It appears that Todd Young will be the Republican nominee, though it’s still undecided.
“Ill support him in the general but without much enthusiasm. Hes a Wash DC insider, the kind we really needed to avoid.”
It’s the same with me. Coats is bad material and while I’ll force myself to vote for him, I think that Brad Ellsworth will have plenty of dirt to throw on him.
He was absolutely raked over the coals, refused to disclose his money and donations, he’s corrupt.
One thing is clear, IN is another state badly in need of primary run-offs.
Turnout was very light. I voted in the morning and wasn’t even late for work.
Sodrel is old news. We need someone new to face Baron Hill. Also did Souder win his primary? Souder seemed to indicate he’ll be retiring in 2012.
Souder won, but with less than a majority.
If his main challenger was the only one in the race he would have been bounced.
Conservative unity is important. And hard to come by.
That’s why I like Utah’s convention system.
+1 glad to see I voted for the best man for the job, not Mike Sodrel. With him out of the way lets dethrone the Zero suckup Barron.
Coats was a consrvative when he was my congressman; he was a conservative when he was my senator, and he will be a conservative when he returns to the Senate. I didn't vote for him yesterday, but a lot of fellow Republicans did because there were turned off by the "anybody who doesn't toe my line is corrupt" nonsense.
I don’t know where you are in the state, but my wife was the inspector at our precinct and she said the turn out seemed higher than other primaries.
(And that woman takes her job seriously, she made me walk my ass back into the parking lot and get my wallet and ID before she let me past the front door)
