I am sure you all have heard the saying "death comes in three." I have no idea why it works this way, but usually three people die at the same time. Well, this week we have two funerals to attend and today we had an election! This election is worth more then one death though. Pretty disappointing to have almost everyone and everything you support, die! Well, it is time to tighten the boot straps and look forward to 2012! Hopefully, over the next four years the republicans will strengthen their party and prepare a conservative candidate, someone we could all get behind and support.
We had a great time working in a couple different campaigns this year and have made many memories. I guess you could say we try to fight for lost causes! Our local senator who is running against a long time incumbent lost really bad. The numbers right now are: Debbie Regala (incumbent) 70.88% and Larry Faulk 29.12%. I am so thankful that Mr. Faulk tried! No one has even considered running against Regala for years! Perhaps someone else will take the challenge and in four years the Pollock's will have 2 more voters!!! Although, I hope we will have moved by then!
Don Benton's senate race is much closer. I am not able to find very up to date numbers, but he is losing by only 147 votes. Hopefully, they will do a re-count and declare Benton the winner! We can't lose another senate seat. I also hope Rossi can pull it off. It would be wonderful to have a republican governor for a change! Especially since they will probably try to pass legalized gay marriage this session. All we can do is pray! God is still on His throne and He knows what He is doing!
