UPDATE*UPDATE*UPDATE*@4:05 PM –
“As of Wednesday morning, Odom was leading Bailey by 1,117 votes out of 786,211 cast. The 0.14% margin is slim enough to require a manual recount under state law … “
“Odom, 38, attributed his apparent victory to a long-term strategy of cultivating support in Black churches and community groups, middle class neighborhoods and among his peers in the courthouse. He came in first in a three-way primary in August, but earned less than 50% of the vote, forcing a runoff with Bailey, who came in second.”
*UPDATE *UPDATE* @6:30 AM 11/4 – it’s now a 1,117 vote lead for GEORGE ODOM . If all votes have been counted properly, it looks like Judge Odom could be joining the 17th Circuit judiciary …
*UPDATE* @10:45 PM – it’s now a 55 vote lead for Dennis Bailey …
@9:30 PM – With all precincts in, George Odom has a 226 vote lead over Dennis Bailey.
A recount will ensue.
Whether or not there are additional ballots to be counted, absentee or otherwise, is unknown at this time …
