THE EARLY RETURNS ARE IN -
AND THE WINNERS ARE ---
 
 
Gowen and Villarreal win reelection

Portillo/Sarkis in run-off - Sarkis beats Rosales by 2 votes
 
Unknown variable - are there uncounted provisional ballots in the Sarkis/Rosales race.  I have made an inquiry - as soon as I know I will let my readers know.

Hats off to Chris Davis, Cameron county Elections Administrator - he got out the early votes early and finished the count by 8:11 p.m.  I think we can all give Chris Davis an A+ for his first election as the new  Elections Administrator
 
I do  expect a recount in the Sarkis/Rosales race - but who knows - losing by 2 votes is a hard loss.  I just checked the election code - the recount is not automatic - the statute only applies in the event of a tie.  It  appears Rosales will have to pay for a recount.

On the top left hand corner of your screen you may have to hit the refresh arrow- It is that circular arrow. A PDF option will come up - click on it and you will see the results. So long as all the people required by law are at Chris Davis' office by 7 p.m., he will be allowed to hit the enter button and the early voting and mail ballots will be known to the world. Oh, he already knows the winner - but his lips are tighter than the seals on a nuclear reactor.

Something new he is publishing above are the names of everyone who voted early and where.  If you remember which day you voted early and where, you will find your name.  It took me a couple of shots but I finally found the day  I voted.

INDICTMENT OF MARGARITA OZUNA KILLS MAIL BALLOT FRAUD

This is why you pick a high profile target - you take down one on solid evidence and you kill the entire enterprise.  Margarita Ozuna remains presumed innocent - but the message was still sent. If the politiqueras were not doing anything wrong, why were they not helping their "friends" with their ballots this time around?

8 LINERS AND SWEEPSTAKES

Pat Almighty wants you to believe he was targeted as a vendetta - the mail ballot results prove he is wrong - again - take down a high profile target and you also take down the others who are not high profile.  As you drive around Brownsville you will note more and more Sweepstakes places are now closed - based solely on the arrest of Pat Almighty.
