Mayor Tom's Ahead. Again.
The early numbers are in, and so far on this chilly November eve, things aren't looking good for the Angela Hunt TrinityVote gang. Dallas County elections officials report that 21,911 cast their lot in early voting, with 12,341 of them voting against Proposition 1 -- or, in other words, for the Trinity River high-speed toll road. That's 56.4 percent against, with 43.6 percent (or 9,570 folks) voting for Hunt's proposition. But them's the early numbers. Our Man Downtown Matt Pulle says Dallas County officials expect the next batch within the hour. --Robert Wilonsky
