Mere 400 votes
separate McSally, Barber

Arizona Daily Star (Tucson), by Brady McCombs

Original Article

Posted By:antiquegolf, 11/8/2012 8:00:51 AM

The Congressional District 2 showdown between Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Ron Barber has gone into overtime - and it could come down to instant replay. McSally holds a minuscule lead of less than two-tenths of a percentage point over Barber - a 400-vote difference in a race in which more 228,000 votes have been tabulated, with several days of additional vote counting to go.

McSally is a marvelous candidate, but this race appears to be a tough fight for the GOP. It fits a familiar pattern. Can anyone cite even one example where a democrat held a slim lead on election day, but an extended vote count enabled the Republican to prevail? Anyone . . . Anyone . .

Pima County is the most liberal county in AZ. The vote counters are Commies. sorry McSally, I'm sure you have more votes, but when the commies are done counting, Barber will be victorious.

I'm afraid that OP and #1 are correct in their educated prediction of the vote counting results. However, I think that I'll donate to her campaign fund to help with the fight and a chance to expose some Dem voter fraud. Same with Allen West's fight on the re-count.

I would hope that McSally engage her campaign attorney to depose the people doing the vote counting for lie detector tests and answering questions under oath. That would perhaps ensure some honesty in the count.

I can picture it now. 421 votes were found in an election workers car trunk. Amazingly enough they were all for Barber!

The Eisenhower Tree, so much a part of Augusta National that not even a sitting U.S. president could have it taken down, was removed from the 17th hole this weekend because of damage from an ice storm, the club said Sunday. "The loss of the Eisenhower Tree is difficult news to accept," club chairman Billy Payne said. "We obtained opinions from the best arborists available and, unfortunately, were advised that no recovery was possible."

Scottsdale, Ariz. -- Kevin Stadler won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a 5-footer for par on the final hole. Stadler, the 33-year-old son of PGA Tour winner Craig Stadler, closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet. Stadler won in his 239th PGA Tour start, earning a spot in the Masters -- a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history.

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska piled up more than 500 yards of offense and won its nation-leading 28th straight opener. You wouldn´t have known it from the atmosphere inside the 18th-ranked Cornhuskers´ locker room minutes after their 37-34 victory over Wyoming on Saturday night. "I feel like we lost the game," receiver Kenny Bell said. Up 16 points in the fourth quarter, the Huskers had to sweat this one to the end after the four-touchdown-underdog Cowboys converted two late turnovers into touchdowns. "It wasn´t very excited," receiver Quincy Enunwa said of the mood of the team.

Industry fights safety retrofit

WASHINGTON — The oil industry and U.S railroads are resisting the Obama administration´s attempt to boost safety standards for the type of rail car involved in a fiery, fatal explosion in Canada, citing costs and technical challenges. Industry groups say it is impractical to retrofit tens of thousands of existing tank cars used to haul oil, even as they have adopted voluntary standards to ensure that cars ordered after October 2011 meet tough requirements recommended by federal transportation experts following a deadly ethanol train derailment and explosion in Illinois two years earlier.

OAKVILLE, Ontario Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title of the year, closing with 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory. Snedeker took the lead Saturday after second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew when his wife went into labor, and held on in the breezy final round at Glen Abbey. The six-time PGA Tour winner also won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February. Mahan´s wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas. Dustin Johnson, William McGirt, Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn tied for second.

Inquiry alleges misuse of funds
in Hill´s Education Department

CHEYENNE -- State Department of Education funds may have been misspent for pet programs and on in-state travel under the leadership of Cindy Hill. That’s according to information gathered in an investigative report that delves into the agency’s inner workings during Hill’s administration as superintendent of public instruction. Following the signing of Senate File 104 last spring, many of Hill’s responsibilities at the state department were given to an appointed director of education.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Rory McIlroy abruptly walked off the course Friday at the Honda Classic, telling reporters who followed him to his car he´s "not in a good place mentally." He later said it was more dental than mental, releasing a statement that he couldn´t concentrate because of a sore wisdom tooth. The surprising departure raised serious questions about golf´s No. 1 player with the Masters just more than a month away. McIlroy has played only four rounds in three tournaments this year, and this was a clear sign of frustration.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
