Get out there and vote!

The Chicks congratulate our 18th SD Senator-elect Jessica King on her victory in the recall election last week. Thanks to all the volunteers for their hard work and thank you very much to Jessica King for having the courage to run again for the opportunity to represent us. We look forward to visiting you in your Senate office.

We also urge all those who live in the areas where the final two recall elections which are being held today to get out there and vote. We asked for these elections, so now it's time to cast our vote as our last act in them. You have until 8PM to vote.

Chicky, you ask, what difference does my vote make now that we did not win the 3 elections we needed to take the state senate back into the "blue" category? Well, if we don't retain these two seats, we're right back where we started, with only 14 Dem senators. Is that really where we want to be going? Changing the deck chairs around, while entertaining for a while, doesn't really get the job done, does it? We need to retain these folks because it reduces the margin down to one senator/vote. Not really what we wanted, but it's closer than what we were at the start of all this. We would then only need one of the folks from the other side to jump ship, vote-wise. Much easier than trying to get three, don't you think?
