McSweeney wins in the 8th CD

McSweeney is the 8th CD Republican Nominee for the November general election. Kathy Salvi called Dave McSweeney to concede at 9:40 pm this evening. McSweeney will be our guest, this Sunday, on Public Affairs, his first extended interview as the Republican nominee in the 8th Cong. Dist. I spoke with McSweeney a few minutes ago, his first contact with the media after Salvi's concession. McSweeney said Kathy Salvi was gracious in defeat.

The TV networks have McSweeney beating Salvi, 38% to 32%, with 40% of the vote reporting. McSweeney will take on first term incumbent Democrat Melissa Bean in the General Election this fall.
