RESULTS: Local and state races decided

The results are in for local and state-wide races. The Nation will wait for a final decision for the offce of President.

This is not a shade of Bush vs. Gore 2000 where the Florida recount, hanging chads, and an endless round or federal court judges delayed offcial results. In fact, in 2000 the offcial results were not honored until the United States Supreme Court passed the decision on December 12, 2000.

While the count may be slower than usual the plan from both parties is to dispute the results, but the recount process is different than the situation in 2000. A winner will be declared, the loser can have his day in court but it will not change the outcome.

So we wait, but the good news is, you don’t have to wait for state-wide and local election results. We are going to do this in order of state-wide, county, then city elections.
