After neck-&-neck NH primary night, openly gay candidate
@FredKarger beats pray-away-the-gay candidate Michele Bachmann 485 to
New York Times has
it Wrong - Still Trying for Correction
According to the New Hampshire Secretary of State's Office, I beat
Michelle Bachmann 485 to 347 (instead
of Bachmann beating me)
with a 40% vote margin.
It was reported early yesterday on the NY Times website that I lost to
Bachmann by 3 votes (349 to 346) after running neck and neck with her
all night (we’ve asked for a correction). Visit http://elections.nytimes.com/2012/primaries/states/new-hampshire

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner's Office confirmed it
late yesterday. The official results can be found on the Secretary of State's Web Site
Fred Karger's statement:
"Congresswoman Bachmann was in 12 national debates, raised $10 to $12
million, received massive news coverage, has huge name ID and we beat
her in New Hampshire. She and I had been tied in several recent
polls. Early last month I said that I wanted to beat Santorum or
Bachmann in New Hampshire. It's a big win for me."
“Now, it's off to Michigan for its Primary next month. There are
seven Republicans still in the running on that ballot and am sure there
will be a few less after South Carolina and Florida. I will be
competing in Michigan Primary no matter what.”

operation to the “Great Lakes State,” please let us know. Or
yet, come to Michigan and help us!
