N.J. governor race still too close to call. Murphy, Ciattarelli waiting for all votes to be counted.

The bitter race for New Jersey governor didnít end on Election Day.

In a shocker, the contest, once seen as a shoo-in for Gov. Phil Murphy, remained too close to call early Wednesday morning, with results so far showing the Democratic governor and Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli less than a percentage point apart as the clock passed midnight.

Both campaigns cleared out of their Election Night parties with neither declaring victory or conceding, and itís possible a winner may not be known for a day or so. Just after 2:30 a.m., with 87% of the vote in, Ciattarelli was leading Murphy by about 1,600 votes, according to totals from the Associated Press. Each candidates were carrying about 49.6% of the vote at that time.

But thousands of votes ó especially from Democratic-leaning areas ó have yet to be counted. Itís unclear how many are vote-by-mail or provisional ballots that still have to be tallied.

This was hard to watch. It's like shooting the firefighters trying to save your house. Sickening and enraging.

Joy Reid Spooks Us With Creepiest Political Premonitions In Honor Of Halloween

Noe: This is not a comedy video!

For me, the good news is that more and more liberals (like Reid, who mentioned it here) are talking about state and local action, which the Repulsives have been focused on for decades now.

Thank you, appalachiablue, SheilaAnn and WhiteTara for recommending this post. As I have observed on other message boards, newbs seem to have to go through a Non-Response Hazing Process until they're allowed in. I just wanna thank you three for the acknowledgement!

Punish or Perish!

It's as basic as that. I'm not putting forth anything complex here; no overarching philosophy, no grand political analysis, just a simple, self-evident fact: If we do not hold Donald Trump and his Human Cadre of American Destruction fully accountable for their crimes against this country, they'll be back. More specifically, BACK IN POWER. And America won't survive a second Trump term. That is it. That is all I am saying. And we all know it to be true.

Sen. Sinema Doesn't Commit To Supporting New Reconciliation Framework

Was MSNBC baiting clicks with the title of this video? I can certainly see the possibility of Sinema voting against it at the end of the day, that's for sure!
