Stroger vs. Peraica: still counting

Okay, I am back. Just saw Todd Stroger's deputy campaign manager on CBS-2 saying that 89 percent of "our precincts" are in and Stroger has a "healthy margin." There's something to that--they do have a healthy margin. But Peraica has made up ground even in the two hours that I've been at the bar. Surely it's not a good sign for Stroger that most of the ballots that remain will go to Peraica.

I voted for Peraica, and I hope he wins. At this point, it still seems unlikely that he'll make up the necessary ground. But there's no question that the remaining districts are more his districts than Stroger's. Let's see what happens...
