Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann Tie in Iowa Poll, New York Gay Marriage, and More in Chad’s Steaming Pile

Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Bachmann and Romney tie (link)

The first poll from the Des Moines Register has come out and Mitt Romney received 23% of the vote while Michele Bachmann got 22%. It’s a virtual tie! Bachmann hasn’t really even campaigned very much in Iowa and she already is looking impressive. The Romney camp can’t be too happy about this at all. By the way, Herman Cain came in 3rd with 10%.

2. New York passes Gay Marriage (link)

One of the biggest stories of the weekend came out of New York where the state passed and the governor signed a bill allowing gay marriage. It was a very controversial bill and one that I can see going to court. Don’t expect the same kind of law in New Jersey though. Governor Chris Christie has said that he isn’t a fan of gay marriage. That kind of surprises me. I thought he would be a bit more moderate on that issue. Here are some quotes from Chris Christie:

“In our state, we’re going to continue to pursue civil unions,” said Christie, 48, a first-term Republican. “I am not a fan of same-sex marriage. It’s not something that I support.”“I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman,” Christie said. “I wouldn’t sign a bill like the one that was in New York.”

3. Lubbock County Redistricting

On the morning show it seemed as though so many people were interested in the state-wide redistricting process. We had many calls and emails with questions and concerns. The level of interest dropped off a lot when it came to the City of Lubbock and redistricting and now it’s virtually non-existent on the county level. That’s pretty sad.

Make your voice heard on Monday! County officials are wanting to hear from you at 6:30 pm at the Central Jury Pool, 1302 Crickets Ave.

These and many more topics coming up on Monday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News with Chad Hasty. Tune in mornings 6-9am on News/Talk 790 KFYO, streaming online at, and now on your iPhone and Android device with the radioPup App.
