293. CNMI Election Returns

We're waiting on the absentee ballots. 9289 ballots cast and counted here. Election results from Vote CNMI show
Kilili the clear leader with 2279 votes,
followed by Pete A with 1919 and
John Gonzales at 1740.

In September, I had these same three at the top of my list.

Lil Hammerhead will be happy with Kilili's win (assuming, knock on wood, that the absentee ballots don't change the outcome). I hope he does us proud in Washington, D.C. and wish him congratulations and best wishes.

Face forward, the past behind us...

The other contenders:
Juan Lizama at 1611,
Luis Crisostimo at 879,
David Cing at 270
Felipe Atalig at 233
Chong Won at 219, and
John Davis in the cellar at 139.

I'd rather have seen John Davis beat out everyone from Luis Crisostimo on down, but that's my personal preference. I'm not sure if you're going to lose an election if it matters how close you came.

We make our best judgement and hope for the best. I would be the first to challenge bad decisions, even by my own candidate.
