Bilbray/Busby results will be here under U.S. REPRESENTATIVE 50TH DISTRICT - (RUN-OFF) ... http://www.sdvote.org/election/congress.xml
All election results are on this page ... http://www.sdvote.org/election/primary.xml
He claims he went to college.
For the record, in 2004 there were about 275,000 votes cast for this Congressional race (Cunningham vs. Busby), but presumably the turnout will be lower in a special election, even when combined with the primary election.
It seems to me that if Bilbray wins, he can the Minutemen, or at least that particular Minuteman.
The minutemen candidate is taking 5% of the vote right now so no, I don't think anyone should be thanking the Minutemen at this point.
You all do understand that whoever wins the special election tonight has to run again in November, don't you?
I'd say a winning race now portends well for a win in November. Just heard on FOXNews, Francine is losing, but only 8% of the votes counted. Did I hear that right?
And may I add, the only way the Dems are going to take 15 seats in the House in November is by continuing to play us against each other. All they have to do is play Iago for 4 months. Here's an idea... why don't we stick together and destroy the Democrat party once and for all BEFORE we split the Republican Party into the loyal opposition.
They're practically dead as a political institution already anyway. Would it be too strenuous to stop flaming one another through one more election?
hmmmm, I live in Texas and I think Perry has been doing a good job - saved $10 billion in 2003, gave us 5 more GOP Congressmen, tort reform, defense of marriage, prolife, and now a big property tax cut albeit with business tax...
And capital punishment is moving along nicely. (Unlike CA)
Busby wants a recount. Just kidding.
I heard that she's going to argue that the illegal alien turnout was suppressed.
Really? You're kidding, right?
Bilbray on KOGO with Roger Hedgecock saying he will fight for the Soledad Cross at all costs.
Just saw AP is predicting Bilbray the winner.
AP IS PREDICTING BILBRAY THE WINNER!!!!!!
Here is what was once the most cutting edge, forward looking pro-business state in the nation taking half the night to report on an election that totals about 200,00 votes. Just about every other state nationwide, in a what was a good sized primary night has posted their election results and gone to bed, and the socialist, Democrat state of California is having wonderful evening in the never/neverland of the left-wing moonbats that run the state and county elections. A sad story for the once leader state of the nation. America take heed!!!
KOGO just reported the early absentee results as "new" results, drawing cheers. Is any adult in charge there?
The winner tonight (presumably Bilbray) fills out Cunningham's remaining term, then has to run again in the regular election this November.
Nothing wrong with that. He will have the advantage of incumbency, which is not an insubstantial advantage.
It gets much tougher for the Democrats to win in District 50 after tonight.
Wait a minute here.
Cunningham would have been up for re-election anyway. So why does Bilbray have to "fill out the term?"
This is a whole new election cycle, no?
link please? thanks
GREAT News!!! I'm sooo glad I stayed up to get the word...thank you!.
Now, what fun it will be to hear all the democrat experts hit the talk show circuit first thing this morning, saying Bilbray's win means nothing. The spinning will make us dizzy!
I agree. I only pointed it out because there seemed to be some confusion on this thread because Bilbray and Busby are on the ballot twice, once for the special election and once for their respective parties in the general election.
Some people were looking at the general election results and saying Bilbray was losing, which wasn't true.
I'll also say that the special election doesn't appear to be as close as the pundits predicted.
Now the KOGO guy says, "the results are coming in fast and furious now", which, of course, they are not. Nice hype.
He just fills out Cunninham's remaining term.
He wasn't up for re-election in June. Since his seat is now vacant, a special election was held to fill it until November.
I heard that too and laughed.
The people of San Diego need an interim representative, doesn't make sense they should go without a congressman just because of Cunningham going to jail. Same thing happens if a congressman dies while in office.
The winner here fils the seat til November.
This election outcome has proved what I have been saying all along, the Pubbies, in spite of their ineptness and whimpyness, will not only hold the House and Senate, they will gain seats! Why? Not one voter in their right mind will ever truat the Democrat Party to protect the nation and our people, including our future, our precious children and grand children. The Democrat Party needs its heart ripped out at the core by the American voter!!!
AP still saying that?
I heard, just this evening, that Busby's only claim to fame is that she was a "school board member". Is this correct? Is that really the ONLY experience she has in elected office (and that considering the condition of California public schools)?
In Oklahoma, the people running for our Reps. job are former Lt. Governors, Labor Commissioner, etc. I can't believe Californians would settle for someone with so little experience!!
And since Bilbray and Busby are winning their prospective primaries there will be the same match up in November.
Especially dispiriting to the national Democratic Party leadership if the numbers and margin hold up. They put an enormous amount of money, energy, and time into this one race. They were couting on this race to be the ember that would ignite a pro-Democrat conflagration nationwide.
So far, it's been all fizzle and no flame.
Our Georgia republican Senator Paul Coverdale died while in office. The Democrat governor appointed former Democrat Governor Zell Miller to finish up Coverdale's term, and the rest is history.
I don't think most folks here realize that there were two elections going on in te 50th district. One a run off to fill out the vacant seat and the other republican and democrat primaries to choose the party nominees for the november elections.
Bilbray is winning the "runoff" and he is also winning the republican primary. Busby is coming in second in the run off and winning the democrat primary.
Theoretically Bilbray could have won the runoff and lost the primary meaning he would be out of a job come December 31.
I'm not too sure of the Senate.
Conrad Burns (MT) and Rick Santorum (PA) look like they're both in big trouble.
We'll have to pick up seats elsewhere to off-set those losses.
What a bimbo!!!
Reminds me of a Mary Tyler Moore episode where a communications failure leaves Ted repeating the same results over and over.
I don't have a linke but I saw it on Yahoo News. It was buried under the Alabama governor race. Looks like the AP is not going to report Bilbray's victory.
