Navarro Still Ahead in MoCo's Special Election
The count continues in Montgomery County. The Board of Elections has just wrapped up its review of provisional ballots from last week's special election for an open seat on the County Council, and Board of Education member Nancy Navarro is holding on to her slim lead over Del. Benjamin Kramer for the Democratic nomination.
After this morning's count, Kramer picked up two additional votes to narrow the margin to 73, according to board spokeswoman Marjorie Roher. Navarro has claimed victory, but Kramer has not conceded.
Election officials will reconvene on Friday to sift through at least another 108 absentee ballots from the District 4 contest.
Republican tax activist Robin Ficker easily won his party's nomination. The winners will compete in a May 19 general election.
