I Didn't See It Coming - 08/08/14

  If you asked me Thursday morning what I thought about 4-th district congressman Scott DeJarlais' chances of winning the GOP nomination for a third term, I would have told you I think he's toast. 
  With information about the right to life candidate pressuring a mistress to have an abortion and being punished by the state medical board for having sex with patients, I was certain DeJarlais days in congress were numbered.
  They may be but for now, DeJarlais has the narrowest of leads over State Senator Jim Tracy.  Tracy has not conceded because there are enough provisional ballots out to potentially give him the win.  People who showed up at the polls without a picture ID were allowed to vote Thursday.  But those votes won't count unless those people come back to the election commission and prove they're eligible to cast a ballot.
  No matter what happens, Tracy could be the GOP nominee in November because the state republican party could rule he's their candidate no matter the outcome of the popular vote.  I saw the Tennessee democratic party do it a few years ago in a state senate race in Clarkville a few years back.
  High drama, stay tuned.

UNIVERSAL ORLANDO-METAL DETECTORS

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- No keys, no phones, no loose change. Visitors to the Universal Orlando theme park will have to go through metal detectors before they can ride the roller coasters. Park spokesman Tom Schroder says it's in response to what people are carrying in their pockets these days. He tells the Orlando Sentinel keys, phones and the like have no place on high-speed rides. Guests can store their items in free lockers at the coasters.

GIANT NUTCRACKER-OWLS
