I’ll be in the air returning to L.A. from New York on Wednesday, so I’ll be out of the loop most of the day. This also means there will be no Tammy Radio.
In the meantime, here’s a Lounge where the usual “no links” rule is lifted, and for all of your coverage of things that interest you 🙂
I’ll start with the news this evening from the special election for New York’s 9th district, the race the replace Anthony Wiener.
For background on tonight’s elections in both Nevada and New York:
Republicans are eyeing strong showings in two special congressional elections on Tuesday, one in Nevada, where the GOP is expected to hold on to one of its seats, and the other in New York City, where a stoutly Democratic district could change hands.
The race getting the most national attention is in the New York district once represented by Democrat Anthony Weiner, who forced to resign after he was caught using the Internet to transmit salacious photos of himself to women. He held the seat from 1999 until he stepped down in January.
As of this writing things are look up for Republican Bob Turner, but it’s not over until the last vote is counted. Here’s the link for regular updates. Scroll down to the bottom third of the list to: “U.S. House – District 9 – Special General” for results.
And this from just a bit after 11pm ET:
Mr. Turner, speaking just after 11 p.m. to his boisterous supporters at the Roma View restaurant in Howard Beach, Queens, cautioned that “it ain’t over till its over.” But his campaign spokesman said in a message via Twitter that Mr. Turner anticipated what he described as a “strong win.”
Now just after midnight:
