    Feel free to chit chat about today's Primary Elections throughout various states. :)

    *Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman easily wins the GOP nomination for Governor of CA over Steve Poizner.
    (I'm currently watching the live coverage on FOX right now :D)

    *Carly Fiorina has an overwhelming lead over Tom Campbell in the GOP nomination for the US Senate.

    looks like lincoln beat out her democrat primary opponent. That means she has got to face the republican or conservative challenger. I hope she wins the primary so they can throw her out on her butt in the election.

    It's official. Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln has won the Democrap nomination. She will face John Boozman in November.

    Whitman spent $88 mil, $71 mil from her own pocket, supposedly the most expensive campaign in CA history. Fiorina self-financed $5.5 mil.

    I hope these two still have money left in the bank going into the general, and if they do, they better be prepared to be accused of attempting to buy the elections.

Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Whitman is a billionaire. Fiorina is only worth a few hundred million. No doubt the dims will accuse them of everything short of treason, and they might try that - especially if it looks like Fiorina might take out Boxer.

    Congratulations to Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina. Both of them have my full 100% support on November 2, 2010.

    Same here. As far as buying the election, voters are more interested in jobs and the economy rather than that trivia. BTW, these two women know how to create jobs.

    They should be all right. The fact that they are successful businesswomen in a broke state will allow for great comebacks to the "buying the election" claim.

    It's official now. The winner of the Nevada GOP Senate primary is Sharron Angle. I sure hope Nevadans will take down that old bastard Harry Reid by voting for Sharron Angle on November 2.
