Two Special Congressional Bellwether Elections
For O Whom The Bell Tolls. It Tolls For You President Obama
By Scott Rohter, September 2011
In a big upset victory in Anthony Weiner’s old New York Congressional District, the Republican candidate Bob Turner handily defeated the Democrat’s replacement for Weiner, in a district that had a solid three to one registered Democrat majority, and hadn’t gone Republican since 1912. For all of you mathematically challenged Democrats out there in Mudville, that’s just one year short of 100 years! Yes there is no joy in Mudville tonight!
You can speculate all you want on why this occurred. Maybe it was because of the poor economy, or maybe it was the electorate’s disillusionment with President Obama, or maybe it was because of Obama’s perceived lack of support for Israel (the 9th Congressional District which covers Brooklyn and Queens has a substantial Jewish population). But whatever the reason is, whether it is a single reason, or a combination of all of these reasons as it almost certainly is, one thing is for sure. Now there will be one less vote in Congress to rubber stamp President Obama’s Socialist policies, and one more vote to repeal ObamaCare, and return America to a sound fiscal policy! And there will be one more vote to return America to the path of freedom and prosperity too!
In another special Congressional Election on September 12th, 2011 which was held in Nevada to replace the outgoing Dean Heller, the Republican candidate Mark Amodei easily defeated his Democrat rival Kate Marshall as was expected, in the run off for that congressional seat. There were no surprises there. This seat was vacated by Dean Heller when he was appointed to fill the Senate seat of the retiring John Ensign. Mark Amodei was a Republican State Legislator from Nevada, and Kate Marshal was the Democrat State Treasurer.
