Tester takes Montana, and North Dakota remains too close to call

Dean Heller (NV-R)

 

In the wee hours of the night, long after the presidential race had been called and everyone had gone home, three senate races dragged on, undecided, in Nevada, Montana, and North Dakota.

By early morning Wednesday, Nevada was finally called for Sen. Dean Heller, the Republican incumbent, who beat back a challenge from Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley to hold onto his seat.

Shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday morning, Montana was called for Democratic Sen. Jon Tester, who will return to the Senate to serve his second term. He beat Republican Denny Rehberg, Montana’s lone congressman. The win gave Democrats their 54th vote in the Senate, counting the two independents — Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, who caucuses with Democrats, and Maine’s Angus King, who is expected to do so.

    Ahhh, a TYPICAL democrat, corrupt as hell – Yawn…
    From Wiki: On September 5, 2011, a New York Times exposé detailed the actions that Berkley took as a member of Congress that she and her husband financially benefited from.[14] The Times noted that, “Ms. Berkley’s actions were among a series over the last five years in which she pushed legislation or twisted the arms of federal regulators to pursue an agenda that is aligned with the business interests of her husband, Dr. Larry Lehrner.”

    On September 19, 2011, the ethics watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released their annual Most Corrupt Members of Congress report.[15] The report listed Berkley in the “Dishonorable Mention” category.[16][17] Berkley was named in CREW’s Most Corrupt Members of Congress report for the second year in a row in 2012.[18]

    On July 9, 2012, the United States House Committee on Ethics voted unanimously to form an investigative subcommittee to see whether Berkley used her official position to advocate for policy that benefited her family’s financial situation.[19] More specifically, Berkley is accused of pushing healthcare legislation that would benefit her husband’s medical practice. Berkley was also blamed for her efforts to block the closure of a kidney transplant center where her husband was employed.[20]

    In 1996 and 1997, while working as a government affairs adviser for Las Vegas Sands, during the construction of The Venetian Berkley advised her employer to make campaign contributions to two Clark County Commissioners and two Clark County judges to secure their approval for the new hotel.[21] Berkley also suggested to her employer, the option of hiring an uncle of County Commissioner Erin Kenny and to grant a daiquiri concession to commission chairwoman Yvonne Atkinson Gates.[21] Berkley also advised making campaign contributions to the two judges because they “tend to help those who helped them.”[22]

    Shelley Berkley had a career in TV before politics, or her twin did.

    That second pic looks like a “money shot” out of a gay porn movie for gawd’s sake!!

    Not that I’ve ever seen one, and come to think of it, my name might make a good “election porn” title.

    If you ever visited Vegas and seen his show or seen ads promoting a female impersonator named Frank Marino. I have always said that Frank Marino in drag looks more feminine than shelly berkley at her best.

    Con Fester has been a shit senator for our state. Mrs. enraged and I spent far too much time trying to get him to think beyond the end of his nose but he’s just another (d) machine pol. Plenty of lazy and stupid to be found here too, I guess. At least we didn’t go for obastard.
