Voters vote, and every vote counts. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. And despite a last minute flood of money from individuals and Super-Pacs (including Mayor Bloomberg of New York) and a flurry of postcards and ads supporting the incumbent, Brad Schneider has captured a seat that has been in Republican hands for more than 30 years. The margin was small: Schneider 130,941, Dold 128,423.
This was work by Democrats and independents in the Tenth, call by call, door by door, voter by voter, sign by sign. The volunteers who worked and those who led should be proud!
