Bob Etheridge is demanding a recount against Renee Elmer. Apparently he understood what I said yesterday, which is that a candidate shouldn’t concede before the last vote is counted. He seems to think that he shouldn’t concede even long after the last vote is counted. But still, a recount is his right.
Recounts, though, mean election lawyers, and election lawyers mean big expenses. Renee Ellmers ran a lean, mean campaign from the start. She was never a big money candidate. (No Whitmaning here.) She therefore needs to have a refill on her war chest to make sure that she’s properly represented for this post-election recount. If you still have a few pennies left over after this monumental campaign season, can you spare some for Renee? Thank you.
