As I've neglected to mention and MN Publius has reminded me
, it is an election day again. We've got two MN Senate special elections in SDs 19 and 43.
Keep track of the results here
. So far, we're getting smoked in SD19 while we're leading by a small margin in SD43.
UPDATE: MN Politics Guru says it better than I could
UPDATE #2: John Deitering, the DFL candidate from SD19, has lost by about 1400 votes, with a very strong showing (over 16%) by the Independence party candidate. Thanks for running. Mr. Deitering.
UPDATE #3: Terry Bonoff, the DFL candidate, has won the SD43 seat! Congratulations, soon-to-be-Sen. Bonoff! This is a big win, almost 10% and almost 1000 votes. A one-seat pickup in the Senate tonight? I've got no complaints.
