Congratulations LTC. Russell!

Soon to be Congressman Russell. Congratulations to all the voters in Pennsylvania's 12th district who now have a choice in November. Not just a "warm body" choice, but a real one.

It was an uphill battle to get him on the ballot. He needed a thousand write-in votes. You may think that's not a significant number, but Princess Crabby knows voters. It was. You see the voting bylaws in the district don't allow stickers so that meant literal "writing". Voters will promise many things on their way into a polling place, but you never know and people are lazy. Still and all, enough came through in the end.

Results to date:
Washington County - 764
Greene - 381
Allegheny - 24
Armstrong - 412
Somerset - 26
Cambria - 1,801
Westmoreland - 1129
Fayette - unavailable
Indiana - 182
TOTAL TO DATE 4,719

What's that saying "Enough is as good as a feast"? Well normally the Princess would want more, but we'll settle for more in November.

The campaign could use a little cash now folks. There's a donation page on his website.

Bill is listed on the Candidates page of Iraq Veterans for Congress. You should check all of them out and help any that you can.
