Stephens Loses Ground - 1,504 Votes Left
The following is the latest numbers provided by the Orange County Registrar of Voters in the local election. The update was delayed by nearly an hour, finally being posted at 5:55 p.m. You can read the full results HERE. The next update - maybe the final update, will occur tomorrow, Wednesday, at 5:00 p.m. I hear a portly gal humming in the background...
The big news here is that Gary Monahan moved further ahead of John Stevens. He stretched his lead over Stephens by 13 votes. Sandra Genis held the lead and stretched it to 1820 votes over Steve Mensinger, who is 258 votes ahead of Monahan. Colin McCarthy trails Stephens by 468 votes. There are only 1,504 votes remaining to be counted.
There remain only 1,827 votes remaining to be counted in these races. The incumbents cannot be caught.
These races are over. If the trailing candidate received all the remaining votes they could still not overtake the leader in each of the three races.
