>Congratulations go out to Congressman Rush Holt for his victory at the polls yesterday. It was a hard fought victory that I wasn’t sure he was going to win but he pulled it out with 55% of the total vote.
I don’t think his challenger Scott Sipprelle, knew what hit him in the end after crushing Holt in Monmouth County with over 60% of the Monmouth voters supporting him.
I am proud today to still be able to boast, that my Congressman is a Rocket Scientist!
I also wish to congratulate Congressman Frank Pallone on his huge defeat of Tea Partier Anna Little and her “army” of of over zealous wingnuts, who often confronted individuals that they perceived to be supporting anyone other than Anna Little. I heard a number of stories from people that were confronted and harassed by Little supporter at train stations through out the 6th District, that type of behavior by campaign supporters should not be tolerated by any candidate, at any time.
Pallone easily routed Little and her army and walked away from the battlefield that was the 6th congressional district with 55% – 43% margin of victory, even though he too lost Monmouth County.
Both the Holt and Pallone victories should be held up to all those that doubted their resolve or chances at winning their races, they both stood by their records and were rewarded for it. Many of those that lost races yesterday should have taken a page from the Holt or Pallone handbook by standing firmly in front of what they believed in, instead of trying to hide behind or blame others.
