A tight race for State Senate District 50

Every vote counts. In this case, that saying is especially true. The race for the State Senate Seat of District 50 is truly neck and neck.

“This is the epitome of every vote counts.” In perhaps the closest race in primary election history, Dixie Newman has pulled ahead of her opponent, Scott Delano, by a single vote. “We just, we knew we had this, but we don’t have it yet. It is His doing so whatever He wants will be done.”

The race isn’t over yet. Three affidavit votes still remain unaccounted for. Once the votes are in, a recount is likely. There will be no runoff in this situation. “It was a low voter turnout and every vote counts. We have got to get more people excited about being involved in local and state politics and every vote does count.”

The voters have four business days to bring in their IDs to verify their votes. If they don’t bring in their IDs during that time, Newman will officially be declared the winner. “Well, I want to ask all of my supporters to please continue praying because it is not over yet.”

News 25 reached out to Scott Delano earlier in the day who declined comment on the race.

We will keep you up to date as we hear the final results.
