1. I find nothing to back this claim of 1273 votes repeating.
Perhaps there is, but they stopped counting since there were only, say, 2545 votes (twice 1273 minus 1) and with over 50%, mathematics dictate that no one else could win in any way. Also noted is that the result is listed as 1273 to 1140, a clear win.

This seems to be some sort of hidden agenda against IRV Instant Runoff Voting. I imagine Republicans wouldn't like IRV. They'd have to find new ways of stealing our elections other than giving Nader money to split our vote.
