Has a Republican ever won a close race other than Pres. Bush in 2000?

The Democrats always find enough votes to win.

The last precincts to be counted almost always end up being from urban neighborhoods. More often then not those areas favor Democrats. And those are also the ones most likely to have voting problems. They also end up usually staying open late because the line to vote in those neighborhoods are 3-4 hours long...sometimes longer.

Most Republican-rich precincts are from rural areas and don’t have the volume that urban areas do. So they are able to count the votes quickly there with limited problems. The Republican need to have a good lead. Because it’s usually the Democrat that closes the gap towards the finish line.

They would have found sacks of uncounted ballots in Florida if the scary young republicans in suits and ties hadn’t been there demanding to see what was going on.

Sen. Pat Toomey did! The better question is:

Has an establishment Republican ever won a close race other than Pres. Bush in 2000?

If we don’t win it before the country goes to bed on election night, we don’t win it. Ever.

And the GOP does nothing about it. Ever.

The difference is that we did all we could to fight it. We have to do this in every election that is close that the dams end up winning because THEY CHEAT!

In this case the Dem’s photocopied votes for Malloy and then claimed they had found a bag of uncounted “votes”.
