John Deeth Blog: Canvasses change few votes in close primary

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

County canvasses on Monday and Tuesday changed few votes in two close
Republican contests from last week's primary. Christopher Reed held
both his lead in the U.S. Senate race over George Eichhhorn and, more
importantly, his percentage above the required 35 percent. Canvass
numbers had Reed at 24,916 votes, for 35.26 percent. Eichhorn had
24,392 votes, for 34.52 percent. Third place candidate Steve Rathje
won 21,106 votes, for 29.87 percent. The 249 write-ins keep those
percentages from adding to 100. News reports on election night had
Reed with 25,159 votes and 35.29 percent, with Eichhorn at 24,756 and
34.71 percent.
