Chris Lytle loses his senate election

There was a whole bunch of politikin’ going on in the US of A yesterday and aside from North Carolina deciding to outlaw homo love in their state constitution, Indiana also decided they didn’t want no cage fighter in their senate. Former UFC fighter Chris Lytle failed to win his disctrict election, although I gotta give him credit for doing better than I thought he would:

According to official Indiana results, the winner, Mike Crider, finished with 7,200 votes, Lytle received 5,271 votes, while John Merlau had the support of 5,069.

Considering his political videos were made by Bobby Razak of Tapout Films fame, that’s pretty damn good. I am also intruiged by the fact that it only takes 7,200 votes to win a seat in the Indiana State Senate. How much do you get paid for that job?

Indiana legislators make a base annual salary of $22,616, plus $155 for each day in session or at a committee hearing and $62 in expense pay every other day.

During odd-numbered years the legislature meets for 61 days (not necessarily consecutively) and must be adjourned by April 30. During even-numbered years the legislature meets for 30 days (not necessarily consecutively) and must be adjourned by March 15.

Yes, because that makes sense.

    Coffee break means …

    Odd-years
    BASE        = $22,616
    155 * 61    = $ 9,455
    62 * 304    = $18,848
    TOTAL        = $50,919

    Even years
    BASE        = $22,616
    155 * 30    = $ 4,650
    62 * 335    = $20,770
    TOTAL        = $48,036

    I wonder if he’ll get vote-of-the-night bonuses.

    that’s fucking mind boggling. For showing up farting and going home. Quite the racket they got going on there

  • Remico

    This was a primary, not the actual state senate election. Democrats and Republicans hold primaries to see which candidate to give full support to. So Lytle didn’t even make it to the actual election, he lost the competition to see who would actually get to compete. The equivalent of not getting into the TUF house basically.

    Remico beat me to the punch and is correct, this was just a primary election. Think of it as a “playoff” of sorts. Voter turnout for a primary election is typically low (much lower that what you’d see in a general election), especially in small regions / districts.

    This was to see who would represent the republican party on the November ballot. The democrat party also cast votes (although only one person ran) and the winner from each party will face off in November with the winner of that race being awarded the seat and a chance to over tax the public, mismanage funds and attain both pleasure and profit all while fulfilling their new duties as a “public servant”.

    Yo Ryan, this wasn’t a real ‘lection, ‘kay?  Think of it like the Bellator Tournament, they’re just competing to see who gets to fight for a belt no one will watch them fight for.

    I wanted to draft you this very small note just to say thknas the moment again for your personal amazing thoughts you have featured on this site. It’s quite unbelievably generous with people like you to provide freely exactly what many of us could possibly have marketed as an e-book to generate some dough for their own end, notably since you might have done it if you ever desired. The ideas as well served to provide a fantastic way to know that other people online have similar keenness really like mine to realize way more regarding this matter. I am certain there are some more pleasant occasions in the future for individuals who read your site.
