Congratulations to Chap, who went through a grueling campaign, but in the end managed to win quite handily. For anyone who is interested, here is a link to a video of Chap’s victory speech. As mentioned in one of the comments to Jeff’s post, this was a very ugly race, with well over $3 million being spent by the two candidates, much of it on very negative mailers and TV ads. (You can get the fundraising totals by looking here – current through Oct. 24 – and here and here – the large contributions from Oct. 25 through election day.)
