It's only 7pm in AZ.
That district is loaded with freeloaders and Barber is the Freeloader King. This one is going to be tough.
CNN today spent a lot of time today showing its support for the ‘Rat candidate.
Truthfully, I don’t think there will be much if any hanky-panky.
Giffords old district was quite conservative, and she was able to win the election there by getting a lot of outside money from Tucson liberals who were just outside the district. In fact, she was shot while campaigning for money outside her district.
However, this worked because nobody was giving much money to the Republican candidates there. This time is different.
To start with, the district has been changed to incorporate even more conservatives. The out of state money going to both sides is much greater than it was before.
Very little of the Republican money is going directly to the Republican candidate. Instead it is working to get him elected at a different level, where truthfully it is probably more effective.
It will be interesting to see what happens, but the end result will be moot all too soon.
I would be Shocked
Last week NJ-10 had a primary. Fortunately the late-far-left-wing extremist’s son won’t take office until General Election in Nov. No Special elections in NJ.
oh no. not again, with the slow polls. nothing on the sec state’s site yet.
If Debbie Downer’s former BFF Gabby would have gone down in flames this November, thanks to her ObamaCare vote and 1070 opposition....and then she was shot. Now she is St. Gabby, and the little Pelosite douchebag Ron Barber will likely win - despite his blaming Karl Rove and Palin for the shooting. And in November, a much more Democrat district will make it easy for him.
I prefer calling it “Gifford’s former seat”. After all she is no longer in office. Not going to pick on fact calling it Gifford’s seat. Which in a sense it was.
wow. we’re now down. big. looks like big turnout. strange.
looks like the margin for the dem was from pima county. the dems turned out their vote. big turnout (50%!) for a special. this definitely looks like urban lib vs rural conservative and urban won.
reminds me of ca. oh well. jesse would have been great. hope he hangs in there. on to the next race.
