The odds.

The 6th Senatorial District has about 800,000 residents. There are about 400,000 registered voters. (1,667 Libertarians) Since I plan to vote for myself, I figure worst case to win is 1 in 400,000. Since I've been circulating petitions, and talking to friends and family, I know that as of today (01-09-98) I can count on at least 80 votes. 80/400,000 reduces to 1 in 5,000 to win. So it's a long shot....sometimes I bet on a long shot when the payoff is big enough. Ever played the lottery? Please feel free to contact me if you have comments or suggestions.
