Navarro Leads in MoCo, But Race Too Close to Call
Board of Education member Nancy Navarro and Del. Benjamin F. Kramer are locked in a tight race in Montgomery County tonight for the Democratic nomination to serve out the term of the late County Council member Don Praisner in District 4. The contest is too close to call with hundreds of absentee ballots to be counted starting Thursday.
Republican tax activist Robin Ficker won his party's nomination in the three-way GOP contest. Ficker received 58 percent of the vote, edging out non-profit executive and entrepreneur Louis August.
In the six-person Democratic race, Navarro is leading by less than 80 votes with all precincts reporting. Kramer's campaign manager said the final outcome will come down to the more than 670 absentee and provisional ballots.
The winners of the primary contests will go on to compete, along with Green Party candidate George Gluck, in a May 19 general election.
