Congratulations Joe !!

    It would seem that enough people decided to support the candidacy of Joe Booth to be the Senator of the 19th District of Delaware to put him well over the top.

  The unofficial numbers at 9:20 or so put Mr. Booth clearly in the lead. It would seem that he had about a two to one advantage over the Democrat Polly Mervine. Matt Opaliski seemed to be coming in with only about seven percent of the vote. Wendy Jones looked to be coming in with less than one hundred votes.

  Barring any midnight surprise or some kind of challenge I feel confident in giving my congratulation to Joe Booth.

  Now we can get revved up for the next special election to fill the 37th Representative seat that will  be vacated as Rep. Booth becomes Sen. Booth.

    Congratulations to Mr. or soon to be Senator Booth.

    Like you, I am looking forward to the next round. They did their best to keep this one lively with a few twist and turns. I wonder what they will do to keep us entertained next time on political theater.

    Well Tim, like a Hitchcock film I’m sure we can count on seeing a few cameos from Sen. Booth. I’m sure that since he has carried the 37th in the past successfully he will be a huge part of choosing and supporting the next GOP candidate. He knows the people and their politics.
    I think if the GOP will trust in his judgement and not be swayed by certain elements within the party I don’t see any reason why the people of that district should change their minds on the type of representative they want.
