    with votes left uncounted.

    Yes, in the end, there probably wasn't enough votes for her to win.

    But conceding at 10:45am the next morning in a 1% race made sure a win was an impossibility. Considering what was in store for this great state, (blood red majorities in both houses and a [known criminal] Republican governor) would it have killed her to wait a day or so to be sure?

    I donated more money to Sink than I could afford at the time and also phone-banked my ass off because I knew what was at stake.

    Her campaign sucked, and, to me, her early concession felt like a swift kick to the gut.

    And I wasn't alone in feeling that way.

      there was no strategy that would have resulted in a win.

      We did not have the votes, and could not have,

      Again, it's kind of an absurd charge.

      •  It's not a "charge..." (0+ / 0-)

        Like I said, it was a poorly-run campaign, and when she conceded so early the next morning it felt to many of us who worked hard for her like a swift kick to the gut.

        The way she ran her campaign was indefensible.
