Even though I donated to BJ, I can't picture Price being unseated in this environment.

I do hope Lawson gets a percentage above the last couple of GOP candidates, and carries GOP leaning districts in Cary handily. That will at least demonstrate that Liberty candidates are "real" and can appeal to the party base.

I volunteered in Orange county today, and my precinct was all but dead today. We had fewer than 400 voters show up, and I do believe we had a volunteer talk to each of them. Orange county, and especially Chapel Hill is a big time democratic district, and from what I've heard from other volunteers, the other places in Orange county were just about as dead, which is a good thing for BJ. There is no question that it's an uphill battle, and that the odds are stacked against us, but many of us have at least some optimism for the outcome tonight.

He lost, just in, so far Price 77% Lawson 23%, I live right down the road.

I guess he was another lost cause.

Why is the 4th district 26% reporting and all the others are less than 9%.

how could he lose? We donated so much, he's such a good candidate, and he ran a great campaign?!

WTF!

He was a Republican running against an entrenched Democratic incumbent in a heavily gerrymandered district. Not to mention the national Democratic tidal wave that had even well-healed Republicans losing their seats. IMO it would've taken a miracle for him to win.

Yeah, it seems that the democratic poll workers urging new voters to vote straight ticket were much more effective than I was getting an impression of. That, and we ran out of pocket Constitutions before the biggest early voting days. They were the pretty much the only thing getting folks to open up long enough to hear our message.

Good job guys, I'm so proud of all of you.

I know you understand that the poor results were just a result of this democratic wave. 2010 will be a much better year. If I'm still in NC then, you can guarantee I'll be working with you.

Looking at recent elections, it's clear that incumbents almost always win. There's a video on YouTube about how the incumbents in Congress ensure they win. Something about regulation and money.
