Simmons-Courtney: Overtime

Courtney is unofficially about 500 votes up, but Simmons is reportedly asking for a recount. The Courtney campaign believes they have enough votes to prevail despite the recount, and that the DCCC will help fund them through it, no matter how long it takes.

So hang tight. This could take a while.

The 2nd District always has a mandatory recount. And after that, possibly a second. In the future, they should just call it quits at 8 pm and assemble everyone the next day for a long shift.

GC-- What is going on in the CT legislature?

Looks like the Republicans still have 12 (won Caligiuri, but lost Winkler) that right?

If so, then the Democrats now have veto proof majorities in both houses of the CT legislature, right?

CNN has Courtney up 229 with Waterford still outstanding.

I think Simmons is utter scum. Anyone with an R next to their name still is utter scum.

Yet he is 100% right about the recount. He should get the recount. We need to be sure we send the winner back to Washington even if it is a pro-war, pro-torture, anti-middle class, scumbag of a Republican.

For the sake of Eastern CT, I hope Courtney wins. With the new Dem majorities, $$$ will flow to the district to support a freshman Courtney.

If Simmons pulls it out, the district won't get squat. That's what you get for being short-sighted.
