    that tightened that margin?

    I'm not unconvinced it was more the latter, figuring it was such a lock they didn't need to vote.

    •  I was very ill (0+ / 0-)

      and almost didn't go, wanting to save my energy for work, where I have no sick leave. But at the last minute I just couldn't skip voting. It would have been the first time in my life. One thing that motivated me were the downticket races, particularly the AG.
      Now I'm so glad I hauled myself over there. I would be feeling very guilty about now.
