And Your Early Winner Is...
Tom Leppert's your early leader in early voting, but it's early yet. Just ask Roger about last-second comebacks.
...Tom Leppert, with 59 percent of the vote in early voting -- which translates to 19,096 ballots cast his way. Ed Oakley, on the other hand, got 12,897 votes. Which means, as Matt "Math" Pulle points out from county election HQ, he has 6,000-plus votes to make up by night's end. Good luck with all that, but we will be here throughout. Will Oakley? Stay tuned. --Robert Wilonsky
