Skip to comments.AZ-5 Hayworth - NOT A LOSS YET, NOT AT ALL.
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.
Thanks for posting this!
Let's hope. When do they say they will have them counted by?
NC State Alum ping!
How did Hayworth lose?
I'm not sure, last night I heard something about Thursday, but I really don't know for sure.
I sure hope this turns out for AZ and Hayworth. One or two nice surprises would be great right now.
Well hopefully it's because all his voters voted by absentee ballot and haven't been counted yet. :-)
A miracle here and there would help my mood... LOL
Man I hope so. I have always liked JD. I was shocked when he was reported as a loss. Fingers are crossed but I am still skeptical.
Whats the point , Bush has declared that he'll roll over for anything Pelosi wants, no matter how putrid it is to his base if they just won't say anything bad about him... and the RINO's will enable it...
YES, I forgot to add that Mail-in ballots in AZ usually trend Republican.
That's the best news I've heard all day. *crossing my fingers*
Those numbers don't seem right. Too many mail in ballots compared to the total number that each candidate currently has.
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.
That is the total for the state. Only some of them are for his district race.
Good luck y'all...
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!!!
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.
for the most part they are
No, a concession is simply a way to make nice to your opponent. It does not alter the final outcome.
Thanks, I can use some good news this afternoon.
Well, since I heard it on the RADIO, it might be difficult, but i'll keep looking, this is all I could find so far.
scroll down a tiny bit at the site.
Don't get snippy!
Hope it works, but I'm not holding my breath.
I think in the Phoenix area where absentee ballots run very high--in the several hundreds of thousands.
The one against Santorum was the name, period. "Bob Casey" works magic in PA, much like "Kenendy" in Mass.
His opponent got more votes.
Realistically, J.D. would have to get around 60% of the absentees, wouldn't he...is that probable?
"How did Hayworth lose?"
General issues, plus his opponent adopted the confusing Bush/Rove "comprehensive" immigration wordage which the suckers thought might help America.
The enoded words hide Bush's plan to create worker programs that equalize wages and salaries across the border. Few people don't understand that, and the core gets lost in some people's obsession with racial/cultural issues.
I just posted an update to the marriage ammend. which has a website link where it says the outstanding ballots remaining to be counted. Not sure how much would be for the Hayworth-Mitchell area of Phoenix.
