Election 2012: Update #9 (Montana Polls Close)

Shares
  • CNN is estimating that Romney is ahead of Obama 53%-43% in Montana.
  • And another candidate who believes in “legitimate rape” is defeated, as Claire McCaskill wins in Missouri. We just need to defeat Paul Ryan to get rid of the next one.
  • Forward Montana registered over 11,000 college-aged voters during this cycle. That’s an enormous accomplishment.
  • In the very first set of Montana results, Dan Cox has 4.82% of the vote. Sure hope to see more of that.
  • And now Sarah Palin is offering the concession speech on Fox News.
  • Dear God, would the news people start talking about Ohio and Florida?
  • And now Virginia is called for Tim Kaine. George Allen loses so often you’d think he was related to the Washington Redskins.
If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we\'d certainly appreciate it.
