I made a lot of calls yesterday about these races and got a lot of information. Most of it turned out to be wrong. (As was I in saying that the frontrunners from the primary would win their runoffs.) It’s obvious that conservatives did a great job of getting out their vote. I did note in my post yesterday that candidates supported by organized groups have an advantage in runoffs, because ideologically motivated voters are more likely to participate in runoffs. It’s hard to get ordinary folks back to the polls for a runoff.
