Mary Jo Kilroy Wins The Last House Race of 08 For the Democrats

maryjokilroy.thumbnail.jpgAs Howie says, she’s a good one:

This is exactly how 2008 should have ended the electoral fortunes of the Democrats– the real deal, Mary Jo, who will go to Congress to fight like a tiger on behalf of working families, defeating some GOP slug– while a crook and a right-wing Democrat go down in flames. I like it! Stivers has conceded and the local media is hailing Mary Jo as the victor. The final vote count:

Mary Jo Kilroy- 139,582
Steve Stivers- 137,271

Now we just have to see if Franken can pull it out in the Senate.
