Ralph Stampone was the 25th voter at his precinct this morning. What's the big deal about that? It was only 7 AM. Stampone's report of a heavy turnout, made this morning on Ron Angle's WGPA 1100 AM radio show, have been confirmed throughout the day. When I voted in Nazareth late this morning, elections officials at my precinct indicated they were about 50 ahead the norm. And over 650 votes were cast by 2:15 PM in Upper Macungie 4, which is near 40%.
Traditionally, heavy turnout favors Democrats and challengers. We'll see.
