On the day following Tuesday’s primary, the Norman Solomon campaign had a message:
It ain’t over.
Only 1,379 votes (as of Wednesday afternoon) separate Solomon from Republican candidate Dan Roberts, but thousands of ballots have yet to be counted.
Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Janice Atkinson said up to 35,000 voters drop off their ballots the day of the election or mail them in and that the full count won’t be known until Friday.
“We’re still opening envelopes here,” she said. “It’s non-stop.”
Currently Jared Huffman leads with 37 percent of the vote from Tuesday’s primary, while Roberts has 15.3 percent and Solomon 14.2 percent.
“We pledge to fight on until every vote is counted,” wrote Dan Mullen, Solomon’s campaign manager to followers Wednesday. “This is not a recount. The original vote count is simply not finished, and second place is too close to call…I am so proud of what we have achieved. Our campaign has inspired progressive activists and leaders nationwide.”
The top two voter getters from Tuesday’s primary will face off in November.
