Patch's Primary Election Night Live Chat Archive

Readers join Patch editors to offer reactions to Tuesday's voting on 68 elected offices and two state ballot measures.

You've voted, or maybe you haven't, but you still have a lot to say about Tuesday's primary election.

Whether you are for or against taxes on cigarettes or have a particular state Assembly race you are closely watching, we want to hear from you.

The live chat begins at 6 p.m. Patch local editors and contributors will report on the latest developments leading up to the the night's results. We'll take your comments and questions on the election and its impact until about 11 p.m.

Voters will decide the fate of two state ballot measures—one to add a $1 tax on cigarettes to fund cancer research and another to reduce the amount of time politicians can serve in the state Legislature from 14 years to 12 years.

We'll have tweets, photos and polls throughout the evening and reports, plus links to stories from Patch and other election sources.

Just because Mr. Bloomfield knows that the (R) word is extremely unpopular in the district he's running-in, doesn't mean that he isn't still a Republican. If Pete Wilson writes a letter (sent only to those listed on the voting rolls as Republicans) telling his people to vote for this guy - and not the one with the (R) by his name - then you know that this is just a stealth candidacy. Didn't this guy chair the George W. and McCain campaigns locally? Sounds an awful lot like a Republican, to me. The last thing we need is another Koch-sucker in Washington. Waxman is second-to-last thing, but let's keep our priorities straight.
