We have some extremely close House races in Arizona. They may not be decided for days as provisional ballots are counted. Ron Barber is slightly behind in CD2 while Kirsten Sinema and Ann Kirpatrick are slightly ahead in CD9 and CD1 respectively. In both of the latter cases, the Libertarian candidate is taking about 6% of the vote and most of that is almost certainly at the Rethugs' expense. Unfortunately, there was no Libertarian candidate in Ron Barber's race else I'm quite certain he'd have already won.

I know we don't generally care for Libertarians and their impractical ideas but they certainly appear to have helped Dems here in Arizona!


Third party candidates helped Dems in my state?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I had just found out about her the other day. Since I think Pete Stark lost his seat here in sunny CA (to another Democrat), she would take the mantle as one of a very few openly-declared nontheists in our Congress.

    New Hampshire's first district was likely won because of Libertarians.

    Shea-Porter (D): 164,043 (49.8%)
    Guinta* (R): 151,251 (45.9%)
    Others [i.e. Brendan Kelly (Lib)]: 14,027 (4.3%)

    93% reporting.

    (Guinta + Kelly) > Shea-Porter.

    Thanks, Free Stater Libertarians!  Woohoo!
