HUGE UPSET IN THE 33RD!!!
"David Beats Goliath!"
"The Giants Win The Pennant!"
"I Don't Believe What I Just Saw!"
Whatever is your best analogy, this is the time to employ it.
Despite being out raised $348,000 to $45,000, and outspent $116,000 to $32,000 (just as of the March reports - wait till we see the next), and being on the short end of a huge advertising and last-minute direct mail effort which went essentially unanswered, Patricia Phillips wins by a couple hundred votes!!!
No news reports yet, this came on a phone call.
Major congratulations to Patricia for being the type of person whom people want to vote for once they meet her - and for meeting so many people.
Glad to see the radical extremists did not hold her back.
UPDATE: About 1,300 total votes were cast.
In the Fairfax County location, about 230 votes were cast and Patricia won by about 15 votes. I'm told the John Andrews campaign might have thought this was a strong area for them and requested the polling location in addition to the Loudoun location.
In the Loudoun (Ashburn) location the rest of the votes were cast and Patricia won by about 112.
A poll worker said the number one issue voters for Patricia mentioned was illegal immigration.
In the week or so prior to the election, right up through this morning, volunteers for Patricia burned up a lot of shoe leather distributing her full statement on the illegal alien problem - and while most of the distribution was in Loudoun the Fairfax County section was specifically covered. Some volunteers made a big difference in bringing out the radical extremist voters.
