    Here we are again. I’m self-medicating with peanut butter cup caramel ice cream.

    I hope this is a good night for the candidates we support.

  2. Mary Brown says:

    I’m on the West Coast and our polls close at eight. My last sign-waving shift starts in about 45 minutes. I used to do the victory parties on election night, but tonight, I’ll go home and turn on MSNBC for the evening.

    MSNBC showing Amy McGrath almost tied – less than 1% difference. I think a lot of Lexington votes still to be counted but of course the rest of the state is solid GOP.

    I’m sure it’s too early to read anything into these results but I’m glued to the teevee. ARGH

        Should have sent him on a wild goose chase to the right polling place, oh, it’s been changed to this other polling place, and you need to prove how long you’ve lived here and there’s no parking within a mile of the polling station.

    It’s not looking good, folks.

  20. Pat Johnson says:

    Don’t know if I can do this again.

    Are these returns telling me that more then half of this nation is in favor of Trump and the GOP?

    This can’t be happening.

    • Gregory P says:

      Well, not really but the unholy trinity of voter apathy, election rigging and voter suppression.carries the day. But honestly, if the people of this country can’t understand the consequences of voting for evil people then there is no hope for us and we largely will get what we deserve. The problem is that every other citizen of this planet and every species on the planet will also pay the price.

      • NW Luna says:

        Trump’s voting base is about 30% of the country (yeah, that’s 30% too much). Unfortunately with gerrymandering, non-voters, voter suppression, and the whole screwed-up methods for allotting representatives and senators we get screwed.

        If the US had representational voting with 1 person’s vote equaling the same as 1 person’s vote anywhere else in the country we’d be Blue-dominant. I’ve really gotten to hate parts of the Constitution.

  21. Pat Johnson says:

    Horrible Marsha Blackburn won the Senate in TN. Good grief.

    • Fannie says:

      A friggin nightmare. I had my hopes on her going done, but the women in Tenn. must love her bullshitt.

    The western democrats are starting to come through.

      I parked in My RV right outside and went in to see maybe fifteen folks in front of me. We go in person every time to encourage the State to keep the poll location open. However, the lighting and noise are becoming more difficult to manage for Hubby. So, next time we may fill out the ballot at home and take it to the precinct. I’m always grateful to be in CA on voting day.
