This one makes me sad. I’m really pulling for Mia.
Love has now taken a very narrow lead. 67% of precincts reporting.
Well...now Matheson is back up with 80% reporting.
And Love is no “RINO” or “moderate” so this Libertarian potentially having enough votes at present to make up the difference is going to require a different spin from the Libertarian crowd to justify this.
Time to start a real third party. The GOP “establishment” can have it. And as far as Gary Johnson and the so-called “libertarians” are concerned, thanks for helping Obama win you a$$holes!
Let's stay up all night for this one awaiting results.
No other way to cut it.........
tonight has been an unmitigated disaster.
Also, I was a little surprised by Warren winning her race.
Racism, that would be the obvious reason. She would be winning with 51% of the vote if the Libertarian was not in the race.
Mia B. Love (REP)
Jim Matheson (DEM)
Jim L Vein (LIB)
|Totals||488||87.91% 429||48.91% 99,943||48.56% 99,232||2.53% 5,177|
Yep...I thought this one would be a better result...nope, it is over, and she loses. :-(
Mia lost by 2,818 votes to the Dem. The Libertarian took 5,690 votes (2.6%) and would have brought her to 50.7%. The Rat won with 49.3%
By the way, Libertarians took away one and maybe two Congressional seats from the Republicans in Arizona - their votes were 6-plus percent of the totals in two races.
