GOP Run-off in Senate 25 special election today

The race for the GOP nomination for the State Senate in District 25, vacated by Tommy Moore, has been a hectic fight. Six Republican candidates were led in the primary by Shane Massey, who won 37% of the vote, and Bill Hixon, who got 30%.

Much of the run-off has centered around questions of party loyalty, and has gotten rather heated in a race that many Republican politicos see as a prime opportunity for the GOP to pad it's already healthy Senate majority.

While one can argue about who is the real Republican and who is a RINO, there is no disputing that both candidates and their campaigns have given this race all they've got. For that, both sides deserve a big pat on the back (and a few beers and a good night's sleep, too) when the votes are counted.

We've heard all sorts of predictions about where this race is headed, but we say the only poll that counts is the one that's going to take place today. Given the close primary finish and the intensity of both campaigns, we think the outcome is going to be a close one.

Thanks to some friends on the inside, we're going to be reporting on the outcome of today's voting as those reports become available, so stay tuned and we'll keep you informed.

    Come on guys, you don't expect me to publicly admit to any of that, do you?

    You'd be accused of bragging by the Dems and probably stand accused of far worse by the Coalition and the excess of putative exes

    Damned if you do and damned if you don't... I guess you should enjoy yourself.
