He's Up, He's Down! He's Up Again!
Tony Payton, the young Democrat who ran unopposed for the seat held by state Rep. Bill Rieger in Philadelphia, looked like he was aced out of the party's nomination by a write-in -- make that a stamp-in -- campaign run by several ward leaders for Emilio Vazquez.
On Election Night it appeared Vazquez had won by getting close to 1,000 write-in votes.
But that was then, (see Write-In Wonder), this is now.
As of yesterday, Payton was up by 29 votes -- and holding.
See my original post for background on the Payton candidacy.
