Update with Results: Patterson pulled in 47.93 percent of the vote to his opponent’s 52.07 percent. This represents an increase in the Democratic vote of 4.3 percent, or 1,300. The margin between the two candidates was less than 1,500. That’s an impressive result for a guy who went up against an eight-year incumbent who outspent him five to one.
Update: Tony the Democrat and the postcard-writing volunteers completed mailings to the full list of addresses in Phoenix, so this campaign is closed. Please look for the post on Karen Keys-Gamarra’s campaign for the Fairfax County School Board in Virginia. We’ll update this post after August 29 to let you know how Kevin Patterson did.
