Kilroy Has Won!!!!!

Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy has won her bid for Ohio's 15th congressional district!!!

Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy wins Sunday with unofficial results over Republican Steve Stivers after all of the ballots were counted in the race for the 15th Congressional District....


Now it's official: Mary Jo Kilroy will be going to Washington as the first Democrat to represent any part of Franklin County in Congress in a generation.

Final vote tallies released this evening by the Franklin County Board of Elections show that Kilroy defeated Republican state Sen. Steve Stivers by 2,311 votes, outside of the 0.5 percent margin to trigger a recount.....

.....She ended up with 45.91 percent of the vote compared to 45.15 percent for Stivers.....

I am sure that Mary Jo Kilroy and her legions of devoted supporters are very happy this evening. Congratulations Mary Jo!!!!
