Election Night With the Croft Campaign.

Well, by the time I got there, the Croft crowd at the Anchor Pub wasn’t very happy.  I wouldn’t say it was somber, but there was definite disappointment in the air.  Eric Croft made a nice speech, and thanked all the appropriate people, and there was food, and good company.  But, the spectre of Dan Sullivan loomed large and hung heavy in the room.
