  1. 2,000 votes to count countywide, or Republican votes in the 77th Assembly District?

  2. well, stephens is just 32 votes away from Ron Nehring at this time. With 1,000 votes left to count.

    we’re pulling for you stephens.

  3. Amazingly close. As has been stated, it’s how many of those 1,000 are Republican votes in the 77th to determine whether there are enough ballots left for Stephens to catch up. Anyone’s guess.

  4. I do not recall a time that so many race were this close. Does anyone know if that is a correct statement or not?

  5. Post


    The 77th AD includes 15% of San Diego County’s
    total registration (217,794 of 1,416,273 registered
    voters). …. FYI

  6. Congratulations to Steve Rosen!!!

    Our kids need his leadership and financial experience to get us through the next several years.

  7. Thanks, Jim. So, say an inordinate amount of the thou left to count are in the 77th, say 200, and Reps had a higher turnout (true), say 120 of those are Reps, and those votes get split among the dozen or so candidates, then what?

  8. In central committee elections, voters are allowed
    to pick up to SIX preferred candidates for office.

    Undoubtedly some Republicans will have voted
    for BOTH Ron Nehring and Greg Stephens in this
    contest. That complicates things a bit.

    So….my Crystal Ball is Cloudy.
