Final results

The Knox County Election Commission released the unofficial final results of the May Primary late last night. I want to apologize to readers that I was just too tuckered out to get on here and post them. Several write-in candidates did make it on the ballot (note that potentially ballot- eligable write-ins have a number in the % column in the .pdf of the results list).

After endorsing Mark Saroff, I was saddened that he made utterly no showing at the polls. I have to wonder if he made much of an effort to actually campaign.

Sorry to see that your candidate did not fare very well in the Primary Dave... that being said, my candidate to knock out RINO Mike DeWine did not fare very well either. My peeps Blackwell and Schmidt did make it through, however.

Long live Ken Blackwell-America's first black President!

We have a lot of RINO's down here in elected positions, but the grassroots of the party is really conservative, and for every elected RINO, we've got a bona fide conservative to be found somewhere to balance them out, and the Party grassroots are very conservative. The Tennessee Conservative Union is based here in Knoxville.

Dave, I'm sorry to see that Mark did not do well in the poles at all. It appears from what I can see that much work has yet to be done on the part of true
conservatives to gain power in Knox county Tennessee. BTW, you will note that I am using the regular comment form to place my comment. This is now possible
for a blind computer user because Google has added an audio substitute to their graphical word verification. This opens up the possibility for a blind
computer user to get a blog spot account. Also, other things as well.

Not to stray from the topic of the post, but it's high time that Blogger took care of that problem.

Although I do have some functional vision, I am also blind, legally anyway, although I despise terming myself "legally" blind...either I am or I'm not. And I have many peers with no functional vision, so I can certainly empathize (or is it sympathise?) with those who could not comment because of Blogger's short-sightedness.

So, let me just say "Good job, Blog Spot!" even though it's been far too long in coming.

Matt
