LESN Endorsed Candidate Wins The First District Congressional Primary

Joe Werner beat back a feisty, hard charging campaigner Jim Ireton in the Democratic Primary, without even lifting a finger.  Werner attended few events, if any at all and was pretty much a paper candidate - he did not even have a website up.

If Werner even halfway campaigns, raises a little money and maybe lifts two fingers, he may give Congressman Harris a challenge in November.  If this guy can beat a well known Mayor from the biggest city on the Shore who is well connected in Democratic circles without even trying, who knows what he is capable of accomplishing.

On the other side, what the hell happened to Ireton's campaign?  He was actively raising money, crisscrossing the district, doing all the things you are supposed to do and yet comes up short.  If you can't beat a paper candidate in a Democratic Primary as a progressive candidate, you may want to rethink how you deal with people, speak to people and treat people.

Over 2,000 Democrats voted against Ireton in his home county of Wicomico - he should have won that with 90% of the vote. 

So he becomes another addition to Wicomico County political grave yard.

Ireton sucks, and everyone knows it. That is all.

Ireton's 'well known in Democratic circles' as nothing more than a useful idiot. As far as being 'a well known Mayor from the biggest city on the Shore' unfortunately he has nothing to show for it except a higher than average crime rate, unemployment rate, poverty rate, foreclosure rate and low home ownership.
People do not have to live around here or visit Salisbury to know that it is circling the drain poised to become if not already there, just another urban ghetto adding to the too many already staining the country.

If Ireton is this unpopular, that speaks volumes for how unpopular his opponent in the mayoral race he won must be.

Werner won Baltimore Co, end of story.

9:00 You are not familiar with MD Congressional District 1. Only a very very small part of Baltimore Co is part of it. Werner only received 3500 votes there. Werner won in Caroline, Carroll, Cecil, Harford (where Werner received 8000 votes), Queen Anne's,

Ireton did poorly in what most would consider the more liberal areas of District 1. He thought he could flaunt his homosexuality and how "progressive" he is but it backfired. Liberals in those areas are sick of the gay/LGBT agenda. They have worn out their welcome. Keep your sex life and preference to yourself otherwise you come across as a crude and vulgar degenerate. People are concerned about jobs and the economy and NOT what bathrooms freaks of nature prefer to use!

No offense,but this was a squeaker.So much so that I personally am shocked at how close it was.The listed totals reflect the writing on the wall for future elections.

1:17 He still lost to a candidate who did no campaigning. I don't even see where Werner had even registered w/the state to report donations so he must not have taken any. Werner also has no website and only 135 Likes on his FB. It's kind of pathetic when your opponent sits around on his butt while you are running around the state begging people to vote for you and you lose.
To me the only handwriting I see, is if Ireton tries again and it's a strong candidate with an organized well run campaign Ireton is going to lose by like 30% next time.
Also this shows me that Marylander's are really sick and tired of people like Ireton who can't do anything else but make a career out of politics.

I don't know about that 1:17. Joe Werner has been a candidate in either the congressional race or the US senate for years. He just throws his name in and sits back and does nothing. What's amazing is that Ireton lost to this perpetual candidate. It's probably a first. If he couldn't beat Werner he's done. I'm sure Ireton's the brunt of many jokes in democrat circles today.

I can't believe Ireton even got 6000 votes in Wicomico County.And as a registered Democrat I will not be voting for any Democrat who's hero is any Clinton.I stay registered as a Democrat only to vote out the real idiots like Mr. Ireton.
