Another Pro-American candidate wins in Europe…
The center-right party in Denmark won re-election today led by Pro-Bush Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
The BBC reported:

Denmark’s governing coalition, led by Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, has won a general election, but is one seat short of an absolute majority.
With all the votes counted, his Liberal-Conservative led government has taken 89 of the 179 seats in the Folketing, the country’s parliament.

Mr Rasmussen could be forced to seek support from a new party headed by a Syrian-born Palestinian immigrant.

Turnout was higher than in the previous poll, held in 2005, at over 86%.

Mr Rasmussen, 54, who won a third consecutive election after the 2001 and 2005 victories was in a jubilant mood.

“Everything indicates that the government can continue,” he told his supporters after victory became clear.

Out for a ride with his buddy…
