Primary Results Are In - Go Kate!

Ok, so there are still a few ballots to count, but probably not enough to change anything in this election. The only remaining uncounted ballots are early mail-in ballots that were dropped off at the polling places -- mine included -- and provisional ballots. So how'd the candidates do? From the city of Phoenix website (as of last night):

My predictions last week were a little bit off. I honestly can't imagine how this is turning into a runoff between Kate Gallego versus the supposedly well-intentioned campaign with a case of Tourette's. I seriously thought that Robinson would come in 2nd. I'm also a little appalled at our voter turnout, which was the worst of the four districts (2, 4, 6, 8)..... That said, when I see the numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, I can't help but follow up with, "Who do you appreciate?" Well, naturally Kate!!! (and maybe Warren Stewart for running such an ugly, divisive campaign that will surely lose in the general election). So here's the deal: let's show the rest of Phoenix that we care more than they do by delivering Kate a decisive victory in the general election, and let's throw in a high voter turnout for good measure. Sound good?
