    I think we are going have to wait for the recount.

    Knowing how elections go in this country we'll have to wait for the recount, which won't change the outcome of today, before the winner is declared.

    Why is it too close to call with 100% of precincts fully reporting?

    An automatic recount is not in order:

    In elections that cover multiple counties, like the Ohio 12th special, an automatic recount is triggered by the secretary of state when the vote differential is equal to or less than 0.5 percent. The secretary has to initiate a recount for statewide races — such as the governor’s contest — but the margin between the declared winner and loser is much slimmer: equal to less than 0.25 percent of the vote. (Any tie also triggers an automatic recount.)

    But a losing candidate can also request a recount if the difference between votes isn’t small enough to set off an automatic recount. To do this, the presumed loser has to request a recount through a written application.

    Since it is not automatic, the democrats will have to pay for any recount if they want one.

    Got 'im.


    The President's already taking victory-laps...

    When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36. That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov.

    That was impressive how the Republican pulled it off after such scary results earlier in the evening. Of course the Dems will say this is a portent of that blue wave. The Republicans had best get busy and stem that blue wave and turn it red.
