AZ Democrat Ron Barber wins
Quote:Ron Barber, the Congressional aide who was shot alongside U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and then won her seat in a special election earlier this year, has won the right to represent her district for a full term after a hard-fought race against former Air Force combat pilot Martha McSally.

“I’m really proud and honored that I’ve been given another opportunity to serve,” Barber told the Associated Press on Saturday. “I never expected to be in Congress. When I won the special election I was thrilled about that and now I have two years to get some work done, and I really understand what the issues are nationally and locally and I’m going to be working hard on those.”

Barber said McSally called and congratulated him at midmorning, and conceded the race.

Then all we need to find on the Republican side of the aisle are 17 or 18 votes to move the Obama agenda forward. I suspect there are at least that number in the "blue" states that might fear for their jobs of they lean too far right. I also don't think the tea party threats of primary challenges will cause the same fear in 2013/2014 as i dis in 2012.

Murphy is the winner - will be certified on Tuesday. Even though St. Lucie didn't submit the recount on time, Murphy's lead actually increased to 2100 votes in the recount, so West has little recourse (not that the whacko will ever admit he lost to a Commie Pinko Democrat.)

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

West needs to crawl back to the ooze from whence he came.

I will not be shocked if he shows up in Washington in January demanding a hearing from Boehner because the election was fraudulent and the house should seat him.
