Don’t Call It A Come Back!

Don’t tell the press (who prematurely called House District 39 on election night) but Bill Kennemer has now taken the lead over Toby Forsberg by 203 votes!

From Clackamas County Elections

State Representative, 39th District (9:41 update)

Bill Kennemer (REP) . . . . . . . 12,747 50.26
Toby Forsberg (DEM) . . . . . . . 12,544 49.46
WRITE-IN. . . . . . . . . . . 71 .28

I’ll update this post when I get the next batch from Clackamas.

UPDATES ON THE JUMP … 10:45 Oregonian updates

The Oregonian has now called Scott Bruun and Sal Esquivel’s race. And has mysteriously removed the Forsberg check mark and wrote this story. Hey Janie … admitting that the Oregonian screwed up by calling this race too early would ALSO be appropriate.

At 2 PM the 12:30 Update for Clackmas became available online … Bill’s lead has extended by nearly 100 votes.

Update – Friday at 12:40 I don’t see anything new for today. Here was the Clackamas update from 5:40 last night. Bill is now up 323 votes.

    Oh … and before anyone asks. Yes … it is my understanding that HD 39 is entirely within Clackamas County.

  • Alison Bruun

    Congratulations Bill and Cheri!!

  • RinoWatch

    While I have been very hard on Scott & Sal, I applaud their victories! I hope that we can all start fresh and rebuild the Republican party in Oregon in the image of Ronald Reagan.

    The task in the Oregon House will be brutally tough, but I pledge support to those who will fight for Conservatives.

    Great news!

  • Joanne Rigutto

    Will wonders never cease to amaze! I had thought he lost, but now I see that he won by 303 votes.

    Big Congradulations to Bill!

    Kennemer will go back to Salem (where he used to serve in the Senate majority) now in the House super-minority as a freshman. He’ll be completely irrelevant. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him not even run for re-election.
