Schauer supporters try to stay optimistic despite trailing Walberg

The early numbers are not looking good for incumbent Democratic congressman Mark Schauer.   Republican Tim Walberg holds a 4 percenatge point lead with more than a third of the votes counted so far.   Schauer is only leading Walberg in Calhoun County.   Still Schauer loyalists say they are ready for a long night.   Schauer is talking with his supporters, but not the news media just yet.  His campaign spokesman says they are waiting until more numbers are in.
