1. As in, "I know the election results before the election has begun"

Zero to zero.

At least according to my wife. We had the election yesterday too. Forget all I said.

7. No I missed it

I thought it was today (although it's always on Tuesday!) - Now I will have to chant the Indian chant for forgiveness: "OWAH TAFU LIAM".

5. Low turnout again in SW Ohio - reflective of disinterest, I guess.

Four SW Ohio counties had turnout of 10-15%, reminiscent of the low turnout in last fall's municipal elections.

Boehner won handily, of course, taking 69% of the Republican vote in his district.

My conservative Republican incumbent state rep. was beaten by a TeaParty candidate, a former state rep. who's against Common Core, in a highly red district.

Dale Mallory, of the Mallory political clan, was beaten by former Cincinnati Council member Cecil Thomas. This district is normally represented by a Dem. African-American; However, there is conjecture that Republican African-American Charlie Winburn, term-limited on Cincinnati council, may enter against Thomas, which would make quite a race. Winburn is good at raising money, while Thomas typically raises very little in his races.

Which brings us back to the subject of turn-out: it will be very important in November.
