Bono Mack declines to concede, citing uncounted ballots

November 7, 2012 | 3:40 pm

Republican Rep. Mary Bono Mack of Palm Springs, who is trailing
Democrat Raul Ruiz by just over 4,500 votes with all precincts reporting, on Wednesday declined to concede defeat because of a large number of ballots that have yet to be tallied.

“With more than 180,000 ballots still to be counted around
Riverside County, it is premature to consider any election results final," said Marc Troast, the congresswoman’s political director. “Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack and her campaign will be awaiting the impact of this large number of remaining ballots before making any further statements on the 36th Congressional District race.”

The number of uncounted ballots Troast mentioned is the countywide total, not the number of uncounted ballots in the much smaller area of the 36th Congressional District. A representative of the Riverside County Registrar of Voters said the office did not have an estimate for the number of uncounted ballots in that congressional district.

It's common to have uncounted ballots remaining in the days or weeks after a major election. They include mail-in ballots that arrived on election day, plus provisional or damaged ballots that must be inspected by election officials ...

1. She's in shock. She can't believe she's losing her high paying, 3-day a week

cushy job by and generous benefits (or shall we call them entitlements?).

I can't stand these rightwing nutjobs.

4. I would do the same in her position. I had thought she already conceded, but that's close.

I still hope she loses though. This is one of the races I was watching.
