Just a few thoughts before we call it a night.
While Maria Baez refused to concede to her opponent, Fernando Cabrera, who ended the night up by 90 votes in the 14th Council District primary, the Cabrera camp is extremely confident that it will prevail after all the extra votes are counted.
Greg Faulkner, the chair of Community Board 7, who was heavily involved in Cabrera's campaign, told me that they found out all the names and addresses of the voters who requested absentee ballots, which will need to be counted before Cabrera is declared the victor. (There may be a few affidavit ballots left to count as well.)
First of all, Faulkner said there were only about 125 absentee voters in the district, meaning Baez would have to take 91 of those, or 72%, which doesn't seem likely based on the results tonight.
Secondly, Faulkner said Cabrera was the only 14th District candidate who requested the addresses of, and targeted, those voters.
Having said that, this could still take a while and I expect Baez to not go down quietly.
Tune in tomorrow, or actually later today, for more details about the primary results and all the action surrounding the results.
