According to KHUM, with 83% counted, Paul is ahead 54 to 46 percent.
Measure T is ahead 55 to 45%.
Geist appears to have avoided a run-off. Not so for Neely, though she’s way ahead of Fleming.
Update 10:00 -
I was wrong about Orange County. They’ve hardly begun to get their count in. In fact, for such a low turnout, I have to say that this is one of the slowest counts in recent history. Aren’t all these new machines supposed to speed this up?
SF seems to have its act together, with over 60 percent counted. But LA, Santa Clara, San Diego, Alameda, and even many rural counties are sending results in a trickle.
In any case, Angelides is maintaining a 4 point lead with about 13% of the count in.
Prop 81 is at about 45%. Prop 82 is at 41%.
Update 11:22 – Prop 81 is making a move and is at 46.2% with 37.8% of precincts reporting. LA counts are coming in. But unfortunately, nearly all of Orange County and 9/10 of San Diego remain to be counted. Disappointed in my fellow Humboldt County voters on this one too.
Update 11:43 – Lt. Gov race still close. Check out the map below. Blue is Garamendi, Green is Speier, Yellow Figueroa.
