Completing an astonishing week-long comeback , Juan Vargas today claimed the LEAD over rival Mary Salas in their classic 40th district Democratic primary.
San Diego’s Registrar posted new results minutes ago. No updates yet today in Riverside or Imperial counties.
The new overall totals for the three-county district are….
….Vargas….24,079…. Salas…. 24,073.
Vargas added 66 new San Diego votes today, while Salas received 59, a net gain of 7 votes for Vargas.
Their great race is not over yet… Riverside county has 12,000 uncounted ballots caught in a SNAFU with the Postal Service (a Judge will decide if those will be counted)….
AND recounts in ALL THREE counties are a certainty. And that’s just for openers.
So if you like a good Rodeo/Destruction Derby, stay tuned to this station for weeks to come.
Waiting to face the eventual survivor is Republican nominee Brian Hendry of Chula Vista. His chances suddenly look brighter with discord in the other party.
We will continue to bring you new information on the 40th State Senate primary and Fall runoff.
