Eudora News and Information – www.eudorareporter.com
According to our numbers, Sen. Tom Holland has defeated Anthony Brown for the 3rd Senate Seat. Holland won 53% – 47 %. Brown fell nearly 1800 votes short in the balloting. While Brown took Leavenworth County, the lead Holland had in Douglas County was too much to overcome.
We will hopefully bring reactions from all the candidates during the day on Wednesday.
11:40 PM Update:
Connie O’Brien has won another term in the Kansas State House. with 85% of the precincts reporting, O’Brien leads 63% to 37% over Harold Fevurly.
The 3rd Senate District race has some updated numbers. With 73% of the vote in, Holland leads 53% – 47%. about 1500 votes separate the two. Brown still has more ground to cover but he has come up significantly. This race is still too close to call. This could be an extremely tight finish.
With 72% of precincts reporting in the 2nd Congressional District in, we project that Lynn Jenkins will win reelection to House of Representatives. Jenkins has a 58% to 38% over challenger Tobias Schlingensiepen.
In the races for the Kansas State House, there are too many precincts to yet report to call these races. We will continue to follow these races into the night and report as they become final.
We finally have some final numbers from Douglas County.
Nancy Thellman has defeated Frank Male 62% to 38% in the Race for 2nd District County Commissioner.
Also the form of government in Eudora will change. 67% of Eudora voters were in favor of moving to a Commissioner-Manager form of government.
We are still waiting on the State races. We will follow that up shortly.
Just wanted to update everyone that we have not had any additional numbers of late in the races in our area. We suppose everyone is celebrating the fact that President Barack Obama appears to have been re-elected.
Douglas County has not reported any new numbers lately. Other county numbers are starting to trickle in. In the US Congress race, Jenkins is starting to gain a lead 55% to 41% with 48% of the District reporting.
In the 3rd Senate Race, Holland still leads 59% to 41% with 50% reporting. 3200 votes separate Holland from Brown.
In the 2nd US Congressional Race, the numbers are starting to balance out. With 35% of the vote in, Lynn Jenkins now leads Tobias Schlingensiepen 51% to 45%. This race, at the moment, is much closer than was expected. It will be interesting to watch.
In the 3rd Kansas Senate Race, with 42% of the vote in, Tom Holland has a large lead over Anthony Brown, 67% to 33%. The votes totals are primarily made up of Lawrence. It will be interesting to see if Brown can make up the ground with Leavenworth County not having yet reported.
