one hundred fifty-seven . . .
was the number of voters at Paint Branch High School (my polling place) when I went around 5pm today. That breaks down to 136 Democrats and 21 Republicans, according to the election judges. Rona Kramer (Ben's sister, of course) was outside, shaking hands, across from a table with someone from the Navarro campaign. All was quiet, except for the yelling from a baseball practice a few yards away.
The Maryland Moment blog (which, not to toot my own horn, loses out from not linking to this fine blog) said there were a couple hundred people at Leisure World by this morning and, as Adam from Maryland Politics Watch points out, that's the golden ticket in this race.
Polls close in twenty minutes. We'll know soon enough.
