2009 Election Night live blog: Scirocco apparent winner

Emily has reported via text message that as "Skip" Scirocco accepted his victory, someone put "Hot dogs, anyone?" on the PowerPoint behind the incumbent, in reference to his opponent, Ed Miller, who sold hot dogs in Congress Park for years and, last year, from a spot on Broadway.

Apparently Miller was on hand for the (let's hope) good-humored jab to shake Scirocco's hand and congratulate the Republican candidates the Independent Party had endorsed (Miller is on the Independent committee).

"It's a great night. The sweep is great. I knew we could do it," Scirocco said. "We never took the race for granted. We knew how hard we worked. This time we worked even harder."

So Mr. Miller from the 'Independence' party was on hand to wish all well, how nice.

agphoto, not sure why you're congratulating me, I didn't win an election. Well, thanks anyway. As for my read on the Public Works race, that's why they pay me the big bucks..
