Analysis: If this were the general election, it would have been a clean sweep by Campaign For Change. Their candidates are leading each position by a margin of at least 100 votes, and are leading the Exec race by some 200. PAC8! showed well, getting several candidates into striking range. The Campus Improvement Movement emerged in a more disappointing position, placing 4th (and well back from the top 3) in the Exec race, and only getting 3 candidates past the primaries. Lesser and Wood were clearly the surprise of the election, placing 3rd by about the same amount of votes separating Hamilton and McLain in 1st and 2nd (about 200 votes).
The commanding leads in every seat indicates a runaway victory in generals for Campaign For Change. In the Exec race, McLain could swing the vote back to a dead heat if she gets all of Lessers voters in her column. Even under these circumstances, there seems little standing in the way of a Campaign For Change dominated Senate next year. Voting in the General Election begins on Monday. Log onto duckweb to vote.
