I don't know much about California State Senator Tom McClintock, but it's pretty pathetic that he can't even eke out a solid victory over a cartoon character!
As ballots continue to be counted two weeks after Election Day, the Republican is just barely in the lead in his race against Charlie Brown!
Wait, what's that? It's not that Charlie Brown?
OK, so maybe it's someone else, but McClintock should be more than 592 votes ahead of a Democrat in the heavily conservative 5th District of California. The vote difference is close enough that both candidates went to DC this week to participate in freshman orientation on Capitol Hill…
Neither candidate has been declared a winner, but both Charlie Brown and Tom McClintock will be in Washington this week to attend freshman orientation for newly elected members of Congress.
Maybe they'll both show up this morning on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, when the newcomers pose for their official class photograph.
"That may be a collector's item," McClintock spokesman Bill George said Thursday.
We'll see how this one turns out. Absentee and provisional ballots are still being counted and a recount seems likely.
