10-30-06 | smoothsailing

Posted on 10/30/2006 6:18:11 AM PST by smoothsailing

The keepers of the IREY/Murtha ping list, in order to keep as many of our fellow freepers informed as possible, are proud to announce the kickoff of DIANA IREY COUNTDOWN TO VICTORY #II-DAILY NEWS.

Here you will continue to find the reason of the day why Jack Murtha refuses to debate Diana Irey provided by Diana's own website!

In addition, we have added many new features as the Countdown has evolved.

Look for the IREY FUNNIES, IREY DIARY, great pictures and graphics and so much more!

We have had wonderful support and interest in the original DIANA IREY COUNTDOWN TO VICTORY THREAD and we encourage all to visit it if you missed it the first time around.

Also, please stop by daily to our new thread to cheer Diana on and enjoy the fun with your fellow freepers!

I don't know whether it's good or bad news either. Maybe neither. Polls are open for two more hours (it's presently 5:55, EST).

Just found this article from today's Pittsburgh Tribune-Democrat. You can see the whole thing here. Or here's an excerpt:

Valley voters out early for number of hot races

Mid-Mon Valley voters eager to play roles in several pivotal state elections as well as the crucial midterm Congressional elections were out early today to cast votes....

Cindy Kotch, judge of elections at the Monessen Hilltop polling location, said voting was steady, adding turnout is a little stronger than in the primary.

"They just keep coming in," Kotch said.

Judy Budd, judge of elections at the Concord precinct - located in the Rostraver Township municipal building - said 121 of nearly 1,800 registered voters cast ballots in the first 90 minutes.

Turnout was similar to the primary when roughly 30 percent of registered voters at that precinct cast ballots, Budd said.

Larry Spahr, director of elections for Washington County, said late Monday he expected turnout at 35 percent to 40 percent. Absentee ballots were about 20 percent greater than for the last gubernatorial election.

Mid-term Congressional elections and the race for the governor's mansion were drawing voters to the polls. Spahr said he expected voting interest to be peaked in Washington County because Commissioner Diana Irey, a Carroll Township Republican, is on the ballot against incumbent U.S. Rep. John Murtha, a Johnstown Democrat.

Greetings. Just got off the phone with someone in the campaign. Not much information at this point. Voter turnout in the district appears to have at least matched 2002 levels (when the big draw was the governor's race). Anecdotal reports from poll watchers spoke of a fairly smooth voting process and a lot of excitement out in the field.

Zero percent of precincts are reporting at the moment.

Everyone can follow the results at this link for a CNN site showing Live Returns for the Irey-Murtha Race.

Thanks for the report, Coop and for the heads up on the link, Red.

You might want to check this thread, Coop. It's optimistic but I believe it could be true.
