Primary Open Thread

Well, Rand Paul in a blowout if you’d like a little schadenfreud at Mitch McConnell’s expense.

Early numbers for Sestak don’t look good.  42% reporting, Sestak 51% Specter 49%.

Halter leading.  62% reporting, Lincoln 43.3% Halter 42.6%.

Conway leading over Mongiardo 45% – 43%, 93% reporting.  Looks like a win.  AP calls it.

Critz 54% Burns 43%, 39% reporting.  Murtha’s seat.  53% – 45%, 70% in, AP calls it.

2 Top Specter supporters say to Mrs. Greenspan it’s over.  AP calls it.  Concession should be within the hour.  10:25 EDT.

Toomey for the Thugs- AP.

    Only 7% reporting mostly from Philly, a Specter stronghold

    with 76% reporting. Looking good for Conway. This is Bunnings open seat. The winner will face Paul (R)(Tea Party).

  4. …probably know outcome..maybe. Bucks Co. has little so far.

    • TMC on May 19, 2010 at 3:48 am

    Sestak officially takes the lead. And 2/3 of Philly has been counted. How can Specter win? He probably can’t.

    A Tea Party (R) and a Dem.I haven’t paid much attention to Conway. I will now

  7. Schadenfreud.

  8. Chris now says that people won’t be told how to vote.

    Mrs. Greenspan says the Pa. institutional Dems are mad that they were made to look bad and blame Obama.

    Shorter Democratic electorate: we weren’t kidding when we said we wanted change.

    says he will support him in the GE. Thank you, Mr. Specter, for your service. This is the end of an era.

    • TMC on May 19, 2010 at 4:39 am

    AR-SEN (D): Lincoln 45%, Halter 41%  (21% reporting)

    Without 51%, this will go to a run off June 8.

    Specter loses, Sestak wins as progressive grassroots makes Obama & DC Dems look like fools. Congrats to PA progressives. Great work!
