Update on Texas district 105 race

Looks like it'll be at least a few more days before we know anything one way or the other. From the DMN:

Republican incumbent Linda Harper-Brown leads the House District 105 race by 29 votes as she fights for her career – and her party's current edge in the House. But there are still more than 280 provisional and absentee ballots to count, meaning Democratic challenger Bob Romano could pull out a victory.

Dallas County Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet said it will probably be Monday before the provisional and overseas votes are counted.

That's it in a nutshell folks, but as it says in the article, this is important enough that either way we'll probably see lawyers step in and at least argue for a recount. Whether they'll get it, I don't know, but who would have thought this race could be so important?
