Who will Rudy beat?
With 32 percent of the precincts reporting, Rudy is getting three percent of the vote, with 8,648 total ballots cast for him.
This means he is outpacing:
* "Uncommitted" (6,082 votes, 2 percent) * Duncan Hunter (1,013 votes, 0 percent) * Dennis Kucinich (7,168 votes, 4 percent) * My grandmother (0 votes, 0 percent)
Of those, "uncommitted" is not actually a person, Dennis Kucinich is Democrat running in a primary that doesn't count, and my grandmother not only never lived in Michigan, she is, in fact, dead. (You're still first in my heart, grandma!) Rudy's gonna have to take solace in the fact that he's Big Republican On Campus compared to Duncan Hunter.
Full disclosure -- he's also beating Chris Dodd and Mike Gravel, both Democrats. Courage, Rudy! Those campaign higher-ups are really earning their paychecks now.
