McKinney’s end.

I’m sitting here watching 11Alive as they broadcast McKinney’s defiant concession speech. She played a song by Pink and the Indigo Girls called “Dear Mr. President.” Now she’s speaking and she running through the litany of issues that caused her to be rejected (again) by the 4th District.

She started the speech by claiming the media attacked her mother and one of her campaign workers. Apparently there was some sort of scuffle at her HQ. I don’t know what she’s talking about but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about it.

UPDATE: 11Alive has a brief story about the incident.

    They said 911 was called and that police were handling much worse stuff outside than the on-camera people were seeing inside.

    They made repeated comments that it was all very ugly and a bad ending for Cynthia, whose campaign would “have to explain
