My friend Jesse Kelley in Arizona's 8th District and closer to home, David Harmer, to whom Democrats are trying to hijack the election.
Kelly is an Iraq war veteran who came home determined to save HIS country from extremists, and David Harmer is a Ronald Reagan Republican in a swing district from the Sn Francisco Bay area.
Please go to their websites
and help if you can!
From David Harmer:
"...Limbo. That's where we find ourselves.
As the votes were counted last night, we quickly jumped to a 3% lead and held it for most of the evening. As the number of precincts reporting increased, our lead gradually decreased, but we maintained it all through the night. As of 4:09 a.m. Pacific time, with 99% of the precincts reporting, we led by 23 votes (Harmer 81,762; McNerney 81,739).
Then, in the "preliminary final count," the incumbent suddenly jumped ahead (McNerney 82,124; Harmer 82,003).
If that sounds suspicious, it is. We have reason for serious concern about the integrity of the count and the security of the ballots in some areas. And many absentee and provisional ballots remain to be counted.
We insist that every legally-cast ballot be accurately and properly counted. Getting that done is going to be a battle. We may not know the result for days.
We urgently need additional observers to monitor the counting. If you can volunteer, call or come in to headquarters immediately.
Meanwhile ... you have no idea how much I hate to say this, but the campaign didn't end when the polls closed last night, and our hard-working staff needs to stay on the job. We've exhausted the campaign treasury. Now we need to replenish it. If you can contribute, please do.
From the Greeen Valley, Arizona News:
"...Jesse Kelly and Ruth McClung rode the Tea Party wave for all it was worth, giving Congressional Democrats Gabrielle Giffords and Raul Grijalva the battle of their political lives in races that went down to the wire.
With thousands of Pima County votes yet to be counted, nobody was claiming victory early Wednesday.
Giffords, 40, a two-term representative for District 8, led Kelly, 29, a Marine veteran, by less than one percentage point — or about 2,500 votes — with one of 352 precints left to be counted early Wednesday along with early ballots, which could be key."
