    Thanks for the news summaries! 

    One note: I don’t think the Measure J results are official yet, or that all votes have been tallied. For one thing, the number is now 65.66, which is .17 higher than the total posted in the summary. Also, I believe the Assembly Dist. 50 race hasn’t been decided yet because votes are still being counted.  See: http://blogs.sacbee.com/capitolalertlatest/2012/11/richard-bloom-doubles-lead-over-betsy-butler—-race-nears-end.html

    The article notes, “Bloom said he is not sure how many votes are left to count. The day began with about 150,000 remaining countywide, but Bloom estimated that only 5,000 to 10,000 of them were from the 50th Assembly District.” I’m not sure how many of those 150,000 were counted today.
