Seeking Sadun's score

I'm looking and can't seem to find the election results for Lorenzo Sadun's write-in campaign for District 10. I want to know how much of a dent he made in McCaul and how it compares to other write-in campaigns in recent history.

So far all I can find is a report of 83.7% for Republican McCaul and 16.3% for Libertarian Fritsche. Surely Sadun should have at least a small piece of that. The Statesman and Houston Chronicle results don't show write-ins at all. Is that because they're clueless or does it mean that the official results don't include write-in votes yet?

Hey -- maybe Sadun won and we won't know it until a manual write-in count is finished! :-)

The Travis County results show that he got 12.88%. I would guess that he got less than that outside of Travis.

So it's because the papers are clueless. No surprise there. :-)

It was 5.86% total, according to the Secretary of State. A little over half of what the Libertarian got.

Wow. That kind of surprises me that he got that much less than the Libertarian candidate. I guess that's due to a lack of awareness as opposed to difficulty with the write-in process or perhaps a combination of both?

ttrentham [todo cxe thechunk punkto com] • 2004.11.03
Lack of awareness, I'm sure. The libertarian would surely have polled in the low, low single digits if Sadun had been on the actual ballot.

Not running *somebody* was a ridiculous decision by the democratic party. What if McCaul had done something similar to Jack Ryan in Illinois, and completely discredited himself between the primary and the general election? There *has* to be an alternative.

And I wouldn't necessarily say the papers are clueless. You don't know what kind of data feed they got from the county clerks.

Would really like to see Sadun in the democratic primaries for 2006. He now has experience and his name is out there.

Its hard to do a write in on the Harris County electronic ballots, too.
