The first top-two primary election in California has concluded. The results show some clear winners, some losers, and some nail-biter contests whose results will not be final for days. There are a total of 113,199 remaining Vote-By-Mail, Provisional, and Paper ballots left to count. With numbers this large it is possible that some of the contests, with narrow margins between the second and third place finishers, will flip.
The United States Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, this morning has issued its’ ruling and DENIED the request for reconsideration of the decision of a three-judge panel of the court in February 2012, upholding the ruling of U. S. District Judge Vaughn Walker striking down Proposition 8 as unconstitutional.
