Chavez Holes Up

At the Mayor Martin Chavez headquarters, doors are locked. Certain people are being allowed inside to watch results. It looks pretty grim from what I can see. The mayor appears stressed. Reporters are pacing the O'Neill's parking lot or hovering near their cars. We've been told Chavez is going to show up at O'Neill's at 9 p.m.

I've covered elections for 20 years, and I've never seen a candidate who holes up behind locked doors to watch election results.

When polls close, results are posted on the doors of the polling locations. It looks like Chavez is receiving results location by location. It's possible that he'll know the results before the public.
