(Newser) – President Obama's re-election? It was all the fault of one man, according to his wife—who allegedly ran him over and left him in critical condition, reports ABC 15. Holly Solomon, 28, got into a shouting match with her husband Saturday in a parking lot in Gilbert, Arizona, because he hadn't voted, police say. She apparently thought her family would suffer hard times because Mitt Romney had failed to win the White House.

So Solomon jumped in their Jeep SUV and chased husband Daniel around the parking lot. When he hid behind a light pole, she drove around it several times while still yelling at him. Finally he made a break for it and she pinned him against the curb. He's now in a hospital, and she's been booked for domestic violence charges of aggravated assault. She wasn't drunk or high, either, police say. So she might be interested to learn that Romney won Arizona by about 200,000 votes, notes Gawker. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
