Joe Walsh Comments on the Closeness of the Race

An email from Joe Walsh:

Here are the odds that the New York Times Nate Silver, who writes "538" gave Melissa Bean of winning the day of the election.


It’s been an amazing week. One week removed from election night, we remain absolutely confident in our victory — with virtually all of the absentee votes from Cook County in, our lead is 350 votes or so.

Approximately 600 absentee votes will be counted November 16 in Lake and McHenry Counties and we expect our margin to increase when those are tallied and the election results to be certified shortly thereafter.

In the meantime, I’m preparing to be your representative and will be heading to Washington, DC next week for freshman orientation.

Once the victory becomes official, we intend to have that victory celebration we weren’t quite able to enjoy last Tuesday night.

Rest assured as well, that we are diligently prepared to defend against any attempt to steal last week’s victory away from us.

We won’t let that happen.

Thank you for all your support,
