Now that he has lost three consecutive races for congress in 3 different districts maybe he will give up. This marked Harmer's third congressional run in three separate congressional districts.n He previously lost congressional races in California's 10th district in 2009 and Utah's 2nd district in 1996.
Just pondering, wonder if his acknowledged LDS Mormon religion was a benefit or problem in his political career? Or perhaps his ties to WaMu and the federal bailout funds he received in his severence package did him in?

funny, it was a 1% lead. i didn't see egore quitting and you probably didn't complain about him. it was 1% and a few hundred votes. would you have conceded before they stopped? i don't think so. it was so close he was invited to the freshman meeting. but, contrary to your silly little complaining, he did concede today.
