SNATCHING DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY

It appears my candidate, David Oh, has come ohsoclose but no cigar in his attempt to be Philadelphia's first Asian-American City Councilperson: "Kelly is Apparent Council Victor." David was up by 7 (!) votes once the machines were done, but almost 4000 absentee and other ballots that had to be manually counted left him down 140 or so. It pains me to know we worked so hard, only to fall just a rounding error short. Kudos to David for running a good campaign and demonstrating grace and character through it all. He's still a winner in my book.
