Well the primary election is now over and I have been lucky enough to come out on top. I definitely want to thank those in the blog world who stuck with me when it looked like the entire word was against me. Terry Frank, Bill Hobbs, Dave Oatney, Donna Locke and Rob Huddleston get an extra big blog thank you. Your words of support and encouragement kept me going.
Actually some of the people who were the most venomous kept me going pretty hard as well. By the way Betty Bean, what was that bet?
Election night was a lot of fun. Most of the local people who I wanted to win, won.
Greg "Lumpy" Lambert proved his dist. must be a happy place. The slogan "Don't be grumpy vote for Lumpy" worked well for him. I think now more then ever commission meetings will be interesting to watch. Lumpy is known for being able to draw attention to issues he think are important. And I hope his creative conservative bent dosn't change now.
My office mate Frank Nicley was also able to win his race so the legislature is assured to learn more interesting facts, trivia and history as only Frank can dish out.
Another personal favorite David Davis pulled it out in the district one congressional race. He had me scared for a little while. When some early results said it looked like another person might win I started to feel guilty (David donated to my campaign) but shortly after he edged out front and stayed there.
David was kind enough to call and congratulate me on my race today. David is a great man and will be an excellent conservative congressman. I have zero doubt that he will stay strong when others falter and fail as the heat and pressure comes on.
Sorry I have not posted in a while, the race got hectic at the end as they tend to do and the last few days I have been on the go getting my yard signs picked up. I wanted to post last night but actually fell asleep with my hands on the key board at 9:30PM. I had been going on about 3-4 hours of sleep for the last little bit and I finally cut out. I should be able to do a little more now that my primary is over.
Thanks you all again.
