Politically Speaking: GOP victor not settled

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

By tomorrow we'll likely know if the Iowa Republican Party state
convention will have some conflict or it will be a point-to-the-fall
lovefest. Still not settled is the U.S. Senate primary, in which three
candidates got at least 29.8 percent of the vote. Today and tomorrow
county boards of supervisors are canvassing votes, which will provide
the official vote totals, including absentee ballots that weren't
received by the June 3 primary. The voting had Christopher Reed of
Marion with 35.2 percent, George Eichhorn of Stratford with 34.65
percent and Steve Rathje of Cedar Rapids with 29.8 percent. If the
lower placers get a few more votes, they could bring Reed's percentage
below 35 percent, which would mean the nomination would be decided at
the state convention on June 14.
