4. nikki received 18% of votes
so far.

Here is a great comment from Rep. Cohen about tonights results,

"It says Memphis has come a long, long way and that people who were counting on racial voting to prevail are thinking of a Memphis that doesn't exist anymore," Cohen said. "The people of Memphis are more sophisticated voters that deal with issues and someone's record and not simply race.

"And I think it's a story for America because I know of no other place in America where there would be such a vote."

God Bless America, Yes We Can!!!!

I wasn't worried.

He's not my representative, but I wish he was.

He is the reason more kids get to go to college. He was a big supporter for the TN lottery. :)

I'm glad Cohen won. Also, I know The election is over, but here are two interesting posts on Tinker.
