claims victory in Colorado
Even tho they haven't finished counting
Colorado's Senate candidates are
preparing for a possible recount in a neck-and-neck contest,
This was a smart move by Bennet -
claiming victory. Like Bush in Florida in 2000,
with neither contender declaring victory by early Wednesday. (At 1 PM today, Bennet claimed victory)
Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Republican Ken Buck were within a
few thousand votes of each other
with nearly 1.5 million ballots counted. Thousands of provisional and
write-in ballots remained to be counted.
As of 8 a.m, Bennet had regained the lead votes, with just 6,487 votes
seperating him from Bucks.
About 87 percent of precincts were reporting.
Some projections showed the race could end up within half of 1
percentage point, which would trigger
an automatic recount under Colorado law. Both Democrats and Republicans
said last week they'd be ready for
just saying "Thank you for electing me" works wonders on brain-dead
asshats who are
waiting to be told what the news is by anybody who happens to be
I like this Bennet guy - he doesn't fight like a Democrat.
