19th Senate District Update: Strickland Pulls Ahead

More votes were counted yesterday and Tony Strickland has pulled ahead by 540 votes between the three counties in the 19th Senate District. 51,196 votes have been counted since election night and these votes were from Ventura County. The vote in Santa Barbara County hasn't been updated since Friday yet there are some 10,000 votes left to be counted between provisional and vote-by-mail ballots.

As Jerry Roberts points out over at The Santa Barbara Independent:
Jackson's best hope of eking out a win now appears to rest with about 4,000 absentee votes still to be counted in Santa Barbara County, where officials in the voter registrar's office also have to contend with 6,000 provisional ballots, which were held out on Election Day because of questions about the registration of those who cast them.

The Democratic agenda does not sell on the local level regardless of its skillful and deceptive marketing on a national level.
