Don’t Blame Corey…Blame me!

I carefully with expectation awaited the results of the special elections. First, let’s congratulate the winners:  Senators-elect Mark Peake and Jennifer McClellan and Delegate-elect Rocky Holcomb.  There are no net changes in the political landscape after Tuesday night.  But it was close.  Thankfully the GOP turned out in sufficient numbers to ensure Peake’s election.
