The most interesting races, as returns are coming in Saturday night--

District 2-- Incumbent Krista Snow looks to be losing to challenger Barry Dalrymple.

District 11-- Incumbent Patrick Murphy probably won't be able to catch up with challenger (and former councillor) Jerry Blumenthal.

District 12-- With 8 of 22 tables reporting, Dawn Sloane is just 41 votes behind challenger James Stuewe, with 554 and 585 votes respectively. The other two candidates are far behind. I'm unclear on how the votes are being reported-- Stuewe had a much larger lead earlier in the evening, and that might reflect the internet votes, but I really don't know.

Distrct 14-- with all votes recorded, Jennifer Watts has won. She replaces Sheila Fougere, and will likely be more to the left than Fougere. I'll have more on this soon....
