First results from the 48th

Sen. Campbell and the O.C. Republican Party put a huge push into absentees and GOTV. Now, we will see if the Senator's lead holds true so a runoff can be avoided. Look at the first returns and see how his percentage holds -- it may (underline may) be a long night to see if another eight weeks are needed.

Perhaps the biggest surprise to some is how poorly former Assemblymember Brewer did, what, with all the money, and IEs from those liberal groups such as the CTA Union.
