Murphy’s lead beyond recount: Victory certain!!!

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/national-govt-politics/murphys-lead-beyond-recount-victory-certain/nS3mn/

Palm Beach county ballot tallies updated at 1 a.m. today give Patrick Murphy, the Democratic candidate for House District 18, enough of a lead to avoid a recount and comfortably celebrate his victory over Republican Allen West.

The updated numbers put Murphy ahead of West by 2,429 votes. Overall, Murphy captured 166,799 votes to West’s 164,370 in District 18, which spans portions of Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties.

An automatic recount is triggered by a margin of 0.5 percent of all ballots cast. Murphy’s current lead gives him a .7 percent advantage. All ballots in Martin and St. Lucie counties have been counted.

The tallies released this morning by Susan Bucher, the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, include 136,274 ballots cast during early voting, on election day and by absentee ballot. That number represents a 68.5 percent turnout of the voters within the District 18 boundary in Palm Beach county.

10. you could say

Army training. He only made it to lite colonel which is one step down from those birdies on his shoulder and two steps from that first set of stars, but it's still high enough to have learned well the principle kiss up kick down.On top of which he gave me the impression of being a natural born A-hole. This is excellent news.

14. Thx

 

for the insight...didn't know of his army career. I always 'muted' him when he came on TV. But natural born a-hole just might be the answer.

12. Fox News only has 24 hours of programming a day

They can't possibly find slots for ever republican loser from this election. Some will be forced to go to AM radio. Go West young man. No seriously West, just go.
