Correction, I left out Sarge and Casey's vote. he only got 49% of the votes cast for US Representative. This will make Diane happy, 51% of voters did not vote for him. But do you really believe Sarge and Casey's voters will vote Bell? Be careful Republicans, that "Blue Wave" the Democrats keep touting might strike!
