It’s 8PM as I write this, and I’ll be covering the primary here and over on Twitter.
8:05: Just waiting for results at the SOS website. And waiting.
8:07: And waiting.
8:12: And waiting.
8:15: And finally a result. Sort of. Lyle Koenen has two votes over Larry Rice in SD17. That is two, as in 2 votes. For the privilege of getting clobbered by Joe Gimse this fall.
8:23: 14 vote lead for Connie Doepke in SD33 with about 4% reporting. Gonna be a long night.
8:30: With about 10% of the votes in, Cindy Pugh beating Steve Smith 2:1 or more.
8:40: No votes in from CD8 yet. CD1 has 4% in, Alan Quist up by about ten.
9:07: Big surge of votes for Osmek in SD33; he went from a five point deficit to well under a point. Fingers crossed. Pugh WAY up.
9:26: Pugh’s been called the winner in HD33B. She hammered Steve Smith by better than 2:1. The west is red! At the moment,with a little over 20% reporting, Osmek is behind by 35 votes. He’s been picking up ground all evening (for the last hour and a half, anyway).
9:54: Cliff-hanger time. Three precincts to go in SD33, Osmek behind by 12 votes. He’s been gaining a few votes with every precinct all night; will he pull this out? And will Doepke go for the recount if he does? Looks like Quist is going to tip Parry.
10:36: Still waiting on those last three precincts. Going to bed. This liveblog is over. Good luck, Dave!
