Kelly's Quickie

Posted By on Tue, Nov 2, 2010 at 10:21 PM

Jesse Kelly made a brief appearance here at the GOP party, just as he pulled to within a point of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

He spoke, without a microphone, to the thinned-out crowd, saying the precincts that haven't been counted are all Republican strongholds.

He then took a few minutes to talk with the TV cameras and told KVOA Channel 4 he "has it in the bag," but refused to talk to the Tucson Weekly, and instead ran out the back door.

His campaign manager brought him back to us a few minutes later, and Kelly graciously gave us time for two questions before storming off again.

"It's probably gonna be a little under five (points) right now, but we're going to win it," he says, backing off his earlier prediction of a five-point win.

His campaign manager said it may be days before we know the final numbers for the race.
