St. Lucie recount results shows Patrick Murphy still ahead of Allen West

FORT PIERCE — Results of recounting more than 37,000 St. Lucie County ballots were announced shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday and preliminary figures given by Canvassing Board member Tod Mowery placed Jupiter Democrat Patrick Murphy farther ahead of Republican Allen West than before the two-day effort began.

Murphy campaign senior advisor Eric Johnson was quick to reaffirm victory.

“As far as we’re concerned, this puts an end to it,” Johnson said. “The West people demanded a recount. They got that retabulation and Patrick Murphy gained a margin of 242 votes.

“”This election is over,” Johnson added.   LINK

    • Well, all I can say is:

      This SUCKS! I hope Mr. West runs again and doesn’t give up on having a successful political career. He’s a good and honest and honerable man. (probably why he lost)

    • @ UM — QUOTE “So after the handshakes, the small talk, the photo taking, everyone sits back down to begin the actual discussion. I won’t say what the discussion was on, who said what–just going to keep this about the president and Valerie Jarrett. How that meeting turned…odd. It became very-very odd…”

      So why won’t you elaborate instead of leading me to wonder what that ending is about now?

          • You’re welcome, Kay.  I didn’t remember it at all, but did save many of UM’s articles, so searched my drive for a few words from your quote.

            Another way to find older UM articles, put Google to work.  Put a snippet of a quote you remember, or a few key words, in Google’s search box.  If a quote, enclose it within straight quote marks, like this:

            “handshakes, the small talk”

            Search for significant words . . . “he said I will go” usually will not cut it.

            Then, after your search words but still in the search box, put (with no space before or after the colon):

            site:theulstermanreport.com

            OR

            site:newsflavor. (also with the ‘com’, which I omitted after ‘newsflavor’ because this posting system allows no more than one URL per post; a second URL would block this post)

            Some of UM’s articles also made their way to other blogs, but those two seemed to be the primary ones.

            I hope Allen West succeeds in winning his case via those 900 votes from 7 registered voters!

    • Allen West lost. BUT Murphy won. Adam Hasner lost. BUT Lois Frankel won. Lastly, that hate-filled Grayson won in Orlando. The Democrat voters have Room Temperature IQ’s (72). The Romans knew a couple of thousand years ago that BREAD & CIRCUSES have carried politicians into power. So do food stamps and speechifying. The Barbarians once again got in the gates.

    • NameBM
    • YOu means they fully recounted the 100% + participation votes in that one precinct of theirs and came up with even more votes for Murphy?

      I am SOOOO surprised.

      Anyway it’s garbage in, garbage out. The only recounts which should be authorized should be manual.

      And they should be automatic. Computer calculations should only be indicative. Certifiable numbers should only be manualy counted and the counting should be made in public view.

      I am sooo disgusted by this charade, this scam, this kabuki theater that our elections have become, I am not going to continue participating in elections at the federal level.

      It is useless.
