1000 LOUSY VOTES!!!
PEOPLE, GET OUT TO VOTE IN PRIMARIES!!!!!!!!!!!
As Joe Stalin and Barry Soetoro believe, it’s not who votes, it’s who counts the votes.
He won by 1000 votes in 2012. The margin was wider in the primary yesterday.

Rodney Davis 27,773 54.6% Michael Firsching 2,145 4.2% Erika Harold 20,921 41.2%
“Can we PLEASE start voting for people according to their ideas and experience rather than their appearance or genetics?”
Why? It seemed to work for the democrats in the last two pResidential elections.
R U STUPID? I’ll go for the lookers. Let the Rats showboat the Barbara Mikulsky’s and the Shirley Jackson Lees. We missed a good opportunity here. One rep out of 435 and she’s on her way. Minimal effect but high visuals. That’s what we need.
I apologize to all who now need eye wash.
1000 votes is what RINO crony capitalist crap insider wheeling and dealing will getcha.
If it worked for us, Sarah Palin would be a shoo in and Hillary would be history. That woman (Hillary) is the epitome of fugly.
Is this state an open primary state? If so, we can bet that the incumbent got a little help from the other side.
If I could have voted for her I would have - for precisely the reason you stated.
