Election 2012: AP Reports DeLauro Wins 3rd District Race Convincingly

It's another term for Democrat Rosa DeLauro, as she defeats Republican Wayne Winsley by a wide margin in the race for Connecticut's Third District

It's another two years for Democrat Rosa DeLauro.

DeLauro, first elected to represent Connecticut's Third District in 1990, was re-elected Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. She defeated Republican Wayne Winsley.

The Hartford Courant reported just at 8:45 p.m. - with just 6 percent of the total precincts reporting - that DeLauro won with 88 percent of the vote.

DeLauro received 2,252 votes in Durham to Winsley's 1,382. In Middlefield, 1,627 voters cast ballots for the Democrat while 798 voted for the Republican.

DeLauro significantly outraised Winsley in campaign donations: She raised more than $1 million and he took in $57,000.

My god....the diaper woman won. The same woman two days before DC shut down used her floor time to beg for $28,000,000 to be sent to a third world country and disregarding the budget right here in the US. Wait...I meant she wanted to borrow another $28,000,000 from the Chinese to do this. As this pains me...we HAD to elect Roid mamma Linda to hope to get change and boot Reid from power and NO Connecticut adds to the Dem power in the senate. My god we have to have a test at the polls to vote, we have changed nothing!!!!!

She is a good hard working woman. I stand by her and yes there are some actions some might challenge but Rosa DeLauro’s efforts are outstanding and help better society overall.

I remain in awe of the DeLauro Infrastructure Bank that has again washed dirty money into her personal accounts through her husband's campaign consulting firm, into the DNC general fund to keep her seniority, and into her celebratory banquet kitty, where Rosa and her ghouls will booze and vomit till dawn in the old Roman style. I remain in awe! But I am not sorry for defying this cesspit of unspeakably evil corruption in the heart of our poor state. Not one bit. Hours of campaign work in biting cold, sometimes alone, often with good-natured companions, occasionally facing off contemptuous critics who more often than not ended a confrontation with a smile and a handshake -- this was nothing to regret. Every chance I got to explain the evil consequences of DeLauro's narrow-minded policies resulted in eyes wide open for the uninformed, or tight-lipped silence from the hardcore sycophant. There was no apathy in telling of Rosa's tale of riches and corruption. My only regret is not witnessing just desserts for a hyperpartisan racist bigoted money-grabbing servant of the Wall Street kingpins. I worry that, following this million dollar haul, Rosa will decide there is no room in her vault for any more dirty, stolen money and retire on the Amalfi Coast in her castello...

Of course you want to stand by the $30,000,000 lady. Who doesn't want to be in the company of a winner whose fabulous wealth was stolen from campaign funds or handed to her in brown paper bags from the Wall Street criminals she bailed out? Stop kidding us, please.
