Peter Foy still has the lead in the latest update.
Here are the numbers:
Total 38,720 100.00%
The latest update also mentions that they still need to count Appoximately 9,000 absentee ballots to count and process 5,200 provisional ballots.
Obviously , it would be very tough for Peter Foy to lose the race at this point.
Earlier, Ken and another guy were upset that I had a title of an entry called Dantona wins.
The morning after the election I woke up and looked at the county's website. It said 100/100 precincts reported. I took that to mean they were done. Therefore, I posted Dantona wins. Looking at it an hour later or so I noticied the absentee ballots weren't counted. So, I removed it. I was a bit tired as election night goes pretty late.
Long after I reported that Foy was ahead I was looking through old blog entries and I saw that I had a typo in the headline for the removed story ( I save my removed stories). I corrected it because everytime I logged in I saw the typo again and it bothered me. When I hit "save" it published the story again, instead of saving it to the unpublished file. But it wasn't at the top of the page so I didn't notice. I saw it later and removed it.
Sorry about that.
Someone complained I removed it. Dave, thanks for the attack over a typo. You are right I am not fair and balanced for making typos. Maybe it is the liberal media in me. As your post has a few typos I think you understand.
Ken asked why I didn't respond why I removed it. I didn't know anyone was curious and I didn't notice anyone posted about it until I checked the comments tonight. You could always send an e-mail if you are interested.
For Mike Osbourn and Laura Winchester:
This race was labeled as nonpartisan as were the local school board races. What motivates your party to get involved? What is the point in having nonpartisan races if they just become partisan campaigns? I have my opinions but I figured two party leaders could educate us a bit on the topic.
