9th District: Down to the wire

Nov 2, 2010


I'm covering both candidates vying for the 9th Congressional district tonight. Democrat Gary Peters is trying to hold off Republican challenger Rocky Raczkowski.

I expected a more subdued crowd at Peters' Troy headquarters. But it was still a jolt to go from the bouyant energy at Rocky headquarters, to a downright...shellshocked crowd here.

But even as Republicans are running roughshod over Democrats state and nationwide, this race is still way too close to call.

Peters campaign managers Dan Farough just made an appearance and urged supporters to stick around.  He says they remain "optimistic" about Peters' chances, and the Congressman will drop in around 11.

But this race won't be over by then.
