From Dan Majors in Washington, Pa.Tim Burns, Republican candidate in District 12, went down to the ballroom of the George Washington Hotel in downtown Washington Pa minutes after the polls closed at 8 p.m., to check with staff members on arrangements.
"Things are going great," Mr. Burns said. "All voters were excited about this election. I believe they've really come out and voted today, and they look at this as a great opportunity to send a strong message to Washington."
Asked about problems with voting at polling places, Mr. Burns said "I haven't had a chance to pay attention to any of the problems today. I've focused on meeting as many voters as I could, shaking hands, and I'm leaving that right now to the staff."
