GOP Sweep, Republicans Win Special Elections In Nevada and New York

Republicans are trying to sweep the two Special Congressional Elections being held tonight. Right now, Republican Bob Turner is leading Democrat David Weprin in New York’s 9th Congressional District by 2,500 votes, 53%-47%. This district has been in Democrat hands since 1923. So, it would send shockwaves throughout the country if Turner can pull out a win in Anthony Weiner’s old district. Barack Obama is not polling well in this district, and a loss there by the Democrats would signal just how weak he is around the country.

In Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, Republican Mark Amodei is way ahead of Democrat Kate Marshall in early vote returns. Here are links to the Associated Press vote returns for the two districts:

New York CD-9

Nevada CD-2

UPDATE 9/14/11 12:05 AM - The Associated Press has called the New York CD-9 race for Republican Bob Turner!

UPDATE 9/14/11 12:11 AM - The Associated Press has now called the Nevada CD-2 race for Republican Mark Amodei!

This is a devastating blow to Democrats in the heart of New York.

It’s a sweep for the GOP!!!!

When Liberal New Yorkers elect a Republican, you know they have to be fed up with Obama.

The tide is starting to change, the people are waking up. This is what we need to take our country back. The "Sleeping Giant" now filled with a terrible resolve, will kick obama out of Washington along with his communist cronies.

Harbinger of things to come.

That being said, just watch how absolutly down and dirty each and every Democratic candidate, from Obama on down, will emphasize character assasination and personal attacks, rather than the issues.

It will be the only weapon that they have left and we all know how proficient they are in making it work.

It's going to get really ugly and the success or failure will depend on how much the Media buys into the rumors and inuendos.

This is a good sign. Like Sean notes, the Dems will become very desperate and will stop at nothing in their attacks on non Dems. I expect obama to really crank up the number of executive orders in order to further his agenda and power. If we are lucky, the press will turn on him like they turned on Carter when Carter's presidency began to fail.

Thank you everyone.

Sean, your right, this will probably be the most attacking election yet.
