You know what's really pissing me off... there were NINE candidates in this race. 7 conservatives and 1 liberal. These idiot 7 conservatives should have gotten out of the race last week when they knew Lightner was way way ahead of them.
Right now she has 35% and the highest any of the rest them have is 3%! So she has 10 times more votes than the highest of them.
If you took all their votes and added to her total she'd be way ahead of the liberal Yoder.
So, these idiot Republicans who are putting self-interest above the country's interest are going to result in ANOTHER LIBERAL REPUBLICAN IN CONGRESS.
KS Secretary of State website. You can actually call them to get the instant update! This site looks to be about a half hour behind. http://www.kssos.org/ent/kssos_ent.html
Great point about the turnout for each party!! Very interesting! However, I am now officially depressed.
Kansas Republicans just nominated a LIBERAL to run in November for the House. So - so what if he wins? Who cares? What difference will it make.
They really lost an opportunity to put America back on the right track.
And it goes right back to my main goal with FreedomTorch which is to EDUCATE voters about liberalism & conservatism and why one is better than the other... so that they might see the importance of making sure they're voting for the true conservative over the liberal.
Really sad to see they don't see that yet.
OR, do they? Look at the results below. The conservative whom we supported, Patricia Lightner, got 37% of the vote. The winner got 45%.
Then there were these self-serving idiots who KNEW they didn't stand a chance in hell - yet they were determined to stay in the race and SPLIT THE CONSERVATIVE VOTE! So THE LIBERAL WON!
If they had all dropped out a week before the vote - a week when everyone knew that none of them would get more than 4% of the vote - Patricia could have easily won 55% - 45%. But no, they had to stay in because it fed their ego. I'm so disgusted with them.
Thanks a lot so-called conservatives. Because of putting your own self-interest ahead of country you cost America one conservative seat in Congress!
