Home Run for Tito; Cornell To Chase

According to unofficial numbers I've been shown, Tito Jackson has won the District 7 preliminary election by a landslide -- taking over two-thirds of the vote in a six-way race.

Cornell Mills appears to have narrowly taken second place, and will face Jackson in the March 15 final. Given the margin, however, it is unlikely that Mills will be able to generate much interest in his challenge -- while I would imagine a lot of donors will suddenly want to help the apparent next city councilor as quickly as they can make out the checks. 

Turnout was light, as might be expected for a special election on a cold winter day.
