As vote count continues into Thanksgiving week, McNerney still leading Harmer by less than 1%

Original post made on Nov 19, 2010

Votes in the protracted ballot count in the 11th Congressional District continued yesterday with only a slight increase in the totals for the three candidates: Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-California), his Republican challenger David Harmer, and American Independent Party candidate David Christensen.

I just read this opinion on CNN:

I agree that the reason the GOP did not do better this election even though the democrats are not too popular is because they have the extreme right running the show.

I know I did not vote for Harmer because of his extreme views on social issues. Had the GOP put a moderate candidate against McNerney, he/she might have won (I would have voted for such a candidate and instead voted for McNerney to keep extremes like Harmer away from Washington)

I think it is silly for Harmer to have gone to Washington, it is almost a sure thing that McNerney will win, and no, it was not election fraud like some tea party folks claim

Resident: your letter just shows how effective McNerney's big lie campaign was. Harmer is NOT extreme. Many of the charges from the Mcnerney crew were just plain stupid. What is REALLY silly is McNerney's claiming victory when the votes are not all counted.

McNerney is continued his percentage lead and with the number of votes that McNerney leads with it is not possible for Harmer to win. It no longer matters if Harmer is a extreme or not the votes are in.

Our fine Congressman Jerry McNerney has increased his vote count lead to 2474 votes and increased his percentage lead to over 1%. It is not possible for him to be defeated. Another round of cheers for Jerry and have a great Thanksgiving holiday.

Jerry McNerney (Dem) 113,967


David Harmer (Rep)111,493
