Status Update – Votes are still being counted….

November 5, 2010

I received the email below from Ace Smith, Campaign Strategist for Kamala Harris for Attorney General. It lays it out pretty clearly.

In spite of Steve Cooley’s declaration of victory at 11:00 pm Tuesday night – which was followed six hours later by a cancellation of a Wednesday morning “victory” press conference – San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris will be the next Attorney General of the State of California. Here is why:

  • With 100% of precincts reporting, Kamala Harris has won the Election Day count by 14,838 votes, 45.9% to 45.7%.
  • Uncounted ballots will only bolster Kamala Harris’ lead, as they will reflect Harris’ strong Election Day advantage.
  • Considering that Cooley jumped out to a 50% to 42% lead on Tuesday night thanks to early absentee ballots – and considering where the vote total ended up – our model shows that Kamala Harris clearly won the vote on Election Day by 3%. The provisional ballots cast on Tuesday will reflect Harris’ victory.
  • The late absentee ballots will reflect Harris’ late surge in the race – which was captured both in public and private polling.

We will be providing updates on a regular basis in the coming days.

Thank you for all your support,

Ace Smith

Kamala Harris for Attorney General
