    @DavidLimbaugh Just saw update from RNC says turnout up (125%) in GOP Geauga County, OH where McCain won 57 & down 10% in Athens Cty where O won 67%. Realize we still have 4.5 hours of voting left! I'm hearing all red areas crammed. My wife's friend voted a few miles from us in a red precinct: 1.5 hours.

  • Romney up 92K in OH early voting? Update: Gannett pulls link

    11/06/2012 6:53:26 AM PST · by rlbedfor · 106 replies
    Mitt Romney already has 697,143 votes before the polls opened a couple of hours ago, while Barack Obama only has 605,546, a difference of almost 92,000 votes. The data is time-stamped at 2:03 ET this morning, and the link on the front page of the site reads, “Early voters: How Ohio has voted.” A few counties have not yet reported any early-voting results, but one county in particular looks huge. Cuyahoga, which includes Cleveland, should be a Democratic stronghold, and perhaps the one area where Democratic early-voting efforts should have produced their biggest lead. Instead, Romney has a lead of...

    The Hill ^ | 11-5-12 | Justin Sink
    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) predicted Monday that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would carry the state of Pennsylvania, pushing back against Obama campaign adviser David Plouffe's suggestion that GOP efforts in the state were a "desperate ploy" to find an alternative path to 270 electoral votes. But Toomey noted that in 2010, Republicans swept statewide offices in Pennsylvania, and he predicted a similar electorate for Tuesday's presidential vote. "If you take a look at what happened the last time Pennsylvanians went to the polls, which is 2010, Republicans swept," Toomey told CNN on "Starting Point." "I won a statewide office....

    Kansas City Star ^ | 11/02/12 | David Helling
    Missouri Democrats are worried — about Kansas. They fear messages bleeding over the border will scare some of their voters away from the polls. In particular, they’re nervous about a highly visible advertising campaign telling Kansans they’ll need a picture ID to cast their ballots this year. Pictures aren’t required to vote in Missouri, in part because Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a photo ID law last year Read more here: http://www.kansascity.com/2012/11/02/3898971/missouri-democrats-worried-kansas.html#storylink=cpy

  • On Election Eve, Catholics Unite to Protect Religious Freedom

    Big Government ^ | 11/4/12 | Dr. Susan Berry
    This last Sunday before Election Day finds Catholics across the nation, and beyond, uniting in both prayer and advocacy to protect freedom of religion as provided in the Constitution. Interestingly, the emphasis on Catholic values and teachings, as a result of the recent defense of freedom of religion, may also end up strengthening religious faith among Catholics in general. Since the announcement of what is now familiarly termed, “the HHS mandate,” Catholics and Christians of other denominations have denounced the ObamaCare provision that demands that most employers, including those associated with churches, grant free contraception, sterilization procedures, and abortion-inducing drugs...
