Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The City of Bridgeport has started recounting the ballots from this Tuesday's contentious election this afternoon,(around 5 pm). As of the six pm news,two of the 25 precincts have been counted. Results are not expected to be known until either late this evening or early tomorrow morning.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

After the ballots are all counted, the official tally sheets from Bridgeport will be ferried by a state police escort to Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz's office. Bysiewicz, a Democrat, who is not seeking reelection will take possession of the sheets and will add them to the results from the other 168 towns and cities in Connecticut.

Foley has a roughly 8400 vote lead over Malloy. However, Bridgeport is heavily Democratic and most analysts believe that the Bridgeport totals will put Malloy over the top and the Foley campaign are the ones who will end up blue.

However, the State GOP has announced tonight that they are looking for "volunteers" to recount the votes or question the results or do what the GOP does best, Suppress Democratic voters. Not working this time,but you can rest assured that GOP will do their damndest to screw over the State. Bysiewicz has until November 25th for her office to formally certify the votes. The lawyers for both sides, and the Democratic and Republican parties have already descended on the state. It's not Florida but it could be soon!!! Connecticut may know who its 88th governor will be, but I guarantee you that it is far from over!!!
