Runoff, Nevada Style

This is awesome:

Robert Swetich and Raymond Urrizaga each received 1,847 votes in Tuesday's general election. Under the law in this gambling state, tied elections can be settled by lot.

After the election was certified by the commission Thursday morning, the two settled over a shuffled and fanned deck of cards.

Urrizaga drew first. Queen of clubs. Swetich pulled a seven of diamonds, then offered his congratulations to the winner.

Via Reason's Hit and Run

  • Robert Swetich JR

    Robert Swetich ? settled over a shuffled and fanned deck of cards. Swetich pulled a seven of diamonds, then offered his congratulations to the winner. Funny thing is 1965 Robert Swetich was married to Ondra Hall. They had a son, Robert Michael Jr. he still denies of being the father after 39 years. I hear he was dealt a duce of spades that's how he determined he wasn't the father. Maybe that is the democrat way ?
