Mary Easley Wins Senate Seat
While the media virtually ignored the race to fill Kevin Easley's Senate seat it seems enough people heard about it to cast votes. Democrat Mary Easley helped the family hold on to her son's seat (that sounds odd) by defeating political newcomer Jeff Johnson. Johnson and Easley both made a number of outlandish claims in their campaign literature but the goofiest came the day before the election when an automated phone message from Johnson urging Republican voters to not let the Democrats embarrass Bush by letting the Dems hold on to this Senate seat. I think Bush has other things to worry about. Hooboy.
