Another One Bites The Dust!!

Number 63 -- Another mama grizzly -- Ann Marie Buerkle will be Syracuse’s next representative in Congress, its first woman in the U.S. House.

U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei, the Democrat, called Buerkle today to concede, ending three weeks of ballot inspections, recounting and court wrangling.

Buerkle’s staff said she will have a 4 p.m. news conference. Onondaga County Elections Commissioner Ed Ryan confirmed that Maffei conceded.

Read the whole thing here. John McCain received only 43% of the vote in this district in 2008. George W. Bush received only 48% in 2004. Hope and Change!

Sing it loud, sing it proud!!!
