The Horses at Midnight
The winners: Herrera, Lyons, Balderas, Richardson, Bingaman, Lewis, White, King
Wilson’s on top for the first time tonight with about a 300-vote lead.
With 94 percent of precincts reporting, we’ve still got a 50/50 split in Madrid vs. Wilson. The Congresswoman spoke earlier, and made a point of noting the remaining precincts notoriously vote Republican, which Sanderoff corroborated. She also said given the irregularities in Bernalillo County this morning, she is going to make sure every single vote gets counted.
Here are the Alibi’s horses as of midnight.
