  •  she didn't beat Akin in MO8 (3+ / 0-)

    I've looked at the precinct results in Jefferson County. The margin with the whole precincts is Akin by 5013

    the split precinct (precincts split between MO3 and MO8) vote is Claire 4997/Akin 3564/Dine 571.

    The votes aren't there to put her over the top in MO8. Put the percentage margin is probably a bit under "Akin by 1.5%"

    So he's ran about 8% ahead of his statewide average in MO8.

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo
