With 328 precincts out of 577 now reporting in, Ed Oakley's gaining on Tom Leppert: The second-place vote-getter now has 21.48 percent of the vote, or 11,700 votes. Top dog Leppert's at 26.55, or 14,463 votes. Hill's got 15.92 percent, with 8,670 votes, while Wells has 11.19 percent, with 6,096 votes. Our Man Downtown's hearing we're still waiting on some major Lake Highlands-area precincts. But things are changing among the top four, ever so slightly. --Robert Wilonsky
