Incumbent David Branish must really not be liked. He got beat by 66 votes by a dead guy. If that doesn't bruise your ego, I guess nothing will.

Must not have been a Democrat, because usually for them it's the other way around......dead voters voting for live politicians rather than live voters voting for dead politicians.

What a complete loser! Can't even beat a dead guy! I'd be super embarrassed.

Sort of reminds me of Norm Coleman: He can't beat a buffon, just baarrrellly beat a dead man, and lost to a comic.

What's out of the ordinary with this? He'll do as good of job if not better than 99% of the politicians that are living!
