With 96 percent of precincts in, Allen's holding a 12,000 vote lead. If there's any hope for Webb, it's in the fact that 18 precincts in Richmond City have yet to report, an area that's going about 2.5-1 for Webb, and where there are about 30,000 votes left to be cast. Webb's people also seem to be optimistic about absentee ballots.
Still, it's looking more and more like the best outlook for Webb is a couple of weeks of recounts and absentee counting.
Note too that the Green Party candidate will pull in about 25,000 votes, more than twice Allen's current lead.
