Morning Update: Anti-tax Measure, Kratovil Ahead, Extra Edition TK


Morning dawned in Maryland to find Montgomery's County anti-tax measure leading by about 600 votes and Democrat Frank Kratovil ahead in the the First Congressional District by about 900 ballots with all precincts reporting.

There are thousands of absentee ballots to count in each race, so it's too soon to declare winners. But the Montgomery results are encouraging for anti-tax activist Robin Ficker, who has tried several times to win support for his measure making it harder for county leaders to raise property taxes.

And a Kratovil victory would be another pick up for the Democrats, who also gained two seats in Virginia. A third race there is too close to call..

And if you're one of those poor souls who can't find a copy of today's Washington Post (there's a line in front of our building at this moment), we'll be printing a special edition this afternoon. Look for it in news boxes and convenience stores.
