AP Gives the win To Donka!
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) —
The Associated Press has declared Donka the winner of a tight race against Don Russell and Donald Nolte.
Donka has called for reducing federal spending and has said he's skeptical about human-caused climate change.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Donka had 4,341 — or 36 percent of the vote — to 4,020 votes for Russell — or 33 percent — and 3,802 votes for Nolte, or 31 percent.
It's really neat to be part of the closest three-way political race in Vermont's history. It's not even over or official and still I'm humbled to simply be a part of it. My night was fairly nerve-racking as I was checking in periodically with several people in addition to being on the David Webb show. We got a record number of hits on our web site so we're still generating a lot of interest. Scott and I will pour over the analytics to find out if they were checking us out prior, during or after voting. I can see someone in the booth with their smartphone thinking, well this site looks pretty well put together, I think I like this guy. Regardless of the election outcome, some vital lessons were learned and we have a ton of work to do!

According to more than one recent poll, the invasion of illegals across the Mexican border is is the top concern of U.S. Citizens. Is rubber stamp @peterwelch doing anything about it? Obama has a pen and a phone. He forgot to mention he also has a 9 iron and a putter because that seems to be his and Congress' level of concern! #votedonka #noamnesty

A Better Way
Management decisions relating to personnel are always tough. When dealing with careers, injecting some compassion and tact usually fits the bill. However, this wasn't done and is no way to handle such a precious commodity. More

GOA House Ratings for the 113th Congress
Peter Welch was given a D, which I think was generous. I will support your 2nd Amendment rights. Welch will not, he is for banning standard capacity magazines and so called assault rifles. He will stand with Obama as he strips your rights away. More
“I’m beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress,” ~ Barack Obama. Are these the words of a leader, a great uniter? Need I remind you of the 1986 immigration reform bill Mr. President? We don't need another do-over, we need to enforce the current laws!
