    4.8% reporting:

    Luis Rodriguez 1.2%
    Cindy Sheehan 1.2%

    Comment from me: hopefully their showings rapidly improve as votes are tallied. It looks like decent Republican who was endorsed by RLC will lose to an establishment hack.

    Green Laura Wells had a good showing in her race for Controller, with about 5% of the vote. Two Democrats and two Republicans each got between 20% and 25% and are still fighting for the two runoff spots. Another Democrat is slightly behind Wells. It’s interesting that Wells got over 160000 votes in such a crowded field. IPR should do a story on her campaign if possible.

    I’m also surprised that Green Luis Rodriguez did as well as Cindy Sheehan, even with little name recognition. I voted for Sheehan. I endorse Brown for November.

    Of note:

    There may also be an opposition candidate in District 23. 4 write-ins filed. One Democrat, one Republican, one Libertarian, and one independent.

    I’m quite surprised at Steve Stokes. He came to speak to us at a meeting and, although I liked him, he didn’t have many specific answers on issues. Well, it will be interesting come November.

    Greens have more baseline support than P & F.
