The Bill Dodd campaign is declaring victory based on their statistical analysis of the remaining uncounted ballots.
“The voters sent a clear message Tuesday,” Mr. Dodd said. “They agree with our campaign’s message that it’s time to work together to rebuild California, it’s time for progress, it’s time for a new direction in Sacramento.
“We also talked about the need for leadership, accountability to Californians, and integrity,” Mr. Dodd continued. “Voters embraced those ideals and we will continue to press the need to move California in the right direction all the way through the November campaign and beyond.
“In addition to the voters, I am grateful for a tremendous outpouring of support from literally thousands of people. In particular, I want to thank Congressman Mike Thompson, my local government colleagues who numbered over 160+ people, small business, agriculture and other job producing leaders, the law enforcement community who keep us safe, and the building trades workers who do the hard work building the infrastructure this state so desperately needs.”
Election night results show Dodd a single vote behind Republican Charlie Schaupp in this overwhelmingly Democratic district. The third-place finisher, Dan Wolk, trails by 628 votes.
“Based on the number and county origin of the remaining ballots it is a statistical improbability for Dodd to finish outside the top two vote-getters,” the Dodd campaign stated.
In Yolo County, there is a total of 7200 uncounted ballots. The Napa Elections Office indicated that there were between 5000 and 10,000 uncounted votes there. If the Dodd campaign analysis is correct, that leaves Dan Wolk rought 600 votes behind Republican Charlie Schaupp for the other seat.
