…and thankfully, Governor Romney is still finding ways to support his candidates. Along with helping finance Buerkle’s post-election campaign during the absentee counts and any future recounts, Romney is also helping the efforts of Randy Altschuler in NY-01 and David Harmer in Calfornia, who are both locked in tight races with extensive counts.
As for Buerkle, the numbers before the Cayuga county absentee votes showed her maintaining a lead of 684. Cayuga county began counting Wednesday and will finish today, when Monroe County is expected to begin. Wayne County, a Buerkle stronghold will begin their count on Monday, and Onondaga County – the largest, containing the city of Syracuse – will count their absentee ballots starting on Wednesday, November 17.
Originally Armistice Day, or also known as Remembrance Day. Today we honor those who have served to protect our homeland in the military, be it in active combat, support of those in combat, or active discipline and vigilance in peacetime. To all of America’s veterans and active military personnel: thank you and well done.
Ann Marie Buerkle, Romney endorsed candidate in Central New York is among the few remaining undecided races for House today, after a strong performance against Democrat incumbent Dan Maffei. Entering into today trailing by over 2,000 votes, late results from Wayne county have propelled her into the lead by 659 votes. She now has to hold that margin among the usually conservative-leaning absentee voters, and she can take her place among the 240 or more Republicans set to serve in the House of Representatives.
Overall, well done conservatives. Though some are disappointed that we lost Senate races in Nevada and possibly Colorado (hopefully Rossi can move ahead in Washington), November 2 was an amazing night and provides a tremendous setback to the leftist Obama/Reid agenda. We have taken a massive number of State Houses, including State Legislatures, giving us more than a fighting chance in the redistricting battles that are soon to come. In the House we have not only undone in one cycles all of the gains that Democrats made in the last two, but we have pushed them to the fewest seats in more than six decades. A new wave of conservatives have hit Washington, and this country will be better for it.
