Read the article.
This is written in typical AP style, not overtly slanted, just enough to get their point across.
Reading through it one sees that this election was won solely on the issue of the Republicans ripping Medicare away from seniors, leaving them to die from lack of medical coverage. This, of course, is different than the Democrat's Obamakare leaving them to die from lack of medical coverage based on decisions by the local/state death panel.
I digress though, this post is about math.
What the AP glossed over the fact that the Tea Party candidate, Jack Davis, was a fraud, and drew off 9% of the vote. Davis is a 3 time Democratic candidate for congress and avid Obama and Pelosi supporter. The AP not only did not report this, they described him as appearently legitimate.
A wealthy tea party candidate, Jack Davis, took 9 percent.
The above was their entire discussion about Mr. Davis.
Now the math. The count was Jane Corwin (D) 47%, Kathy Hochul (R) 43%, Jack Davis (
fraud TP) 9%.
What do you think the real story is here (other than there are a few really stupid conservatives in the district)?
