to learn about the outcome of the primary, you can click the clerk's website after the polls close to get a glimpse of the returns as they come in. I have never watched it on primary night, but on the night of the general election the returns don't really start to come in until 8:40 and afterwards. http://www.visitmonmouth.com/ElectionResults/Election%20Result.htm

Marc, I do not hold grudges, they erode our souls. I also do not practice vengeance, it is a weakness. It takes two to tango, and we did just that. The past is in the past where it belongs. Olive branch accepted, thank you. Mike says "Unity in our Community", I am a big fan of that. Peace and good health to you, Marc

Thank you Dan Xavier for your experiment in Democracy. Hold your head high. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Your name and your view are now better known to all. It's very difficult to overcome a local party's loyal base and bring the casual voter into the mix. In retrospect, this was a great political cycle for Freehold. Because of you, the debate has started earlier than ever and you, Sharon and Ron engaged our residents in a great way. Now, it it time to out all differences aside and unite our party. Best of luck to Sharon and Ron AND to John and Marianne, too.
