Somebody let the air out of this balloon early tonight. This has got to be the dullest election night I can recall.
Six weeks of campaigning and the Clinton/Obama race ends up in a 55-45 split? Doesn't anybody want to win this thing? It's like a baseball game going into the 18th inning. There comes a point where you just don't care anymore. You just want it to be over.
Most of the races in Montgomery County were decided before the polls closed. Almost all state and Congressional races were uncontested in Tuesday's primary election.
Here's a sampling:
In the 6th Congressional District, Republican incumbent Jim Gerlach will be challenged by Democrat Bob Roggio.
In the 13th Congressional District, Democratic incumbent Allyson Schwartz will be challenged by Republican Marina Katz.
In the 15th Congressional District, Republican incumbent Charlie Dent will be challenged by Democrat Sam Bennett.
In the 53rd District for the state House, Republican incumbent Bob Godshall will be challenged by Democrat Jack Hansen.
In the 61st District for the state House, Republican incumbent Kate Harper will be challenged by Democrat Frank X. Custer.
In the 70th District for the state House, Republican incumbent Jay R. Moyer will be challenged by Democrat Dwayne D. Royster.
In the 147th District for the state House no Democrats ran Tuesday. Republican incumbent Bob Mensch will run unopposed in November.
In the 151st District for the state House, Democratic incumbent Rick Taylor will be challenged by Republican Todd Stephens.
There were only two contests involving Berks County legislative districts. Richard Gokey narrowly won the GOP nod in the 130th District over Aaron Durso for the right to challenge Rep. David Kessler. And Dave Argall easily won the GOP nomination in the 124th District, which includes Schuylkill County.
Check back in November if you have any interest in politics.
