SD 34 Update: Daucher Lead Slides Yet Again

Now Daucher is only ahead by 147 VOTES!

Here are today's numbers from the OC Registrar:

STATE SENATOR, 34th District
Completed Precincts: 377 of 377
Vote Count Percentage
LYNN DAUCHER (REP) 53019 49.7%
LOU CORREA (DEM) 52872 49.5%
OTTO BADE 886 0.8%

Hmmm... So now, "Otto the Spoiler" is finally on the map! I guess we'll have to wait and see as to how much Bade affects the final outcome. Just who voted for Otto? Were they "Pro-life Latino Democrats" who would have voted for Lou otherwise... Or were they "True Red Conservative Republicans" who could not hold their noses to vote for the (at least somewhat) pro-choice Lynn?

FURTHER UPDATE: The Register's Martin Wisckol spoke with OC Registrar Neal Kelley about the remaining SD 34 ballots to count. He's now estimating a few hundred more absentees to count, as well as about 6,000 provisionals. We'll see if Kelley's numbers prove to be right.

Oh, the fun continues as the ballot counts keep trickling in!
