Truckee resident and Democrat Silke Pflueger is in a close third with 25-point-eight percent, but has apparently conceded. In a tweet sent out late last night, Pflueger wrote, “It wasn’t meant to be. But what a journey. All those wonderful people I met, each of you who supported me any way you were able to – and most importantly over forty thousand people who believed in me. Thank you to each one of you, no matter how you helped. I’m a better person because of each of you. And I love this district, and it’s people. Good night!”. Pflueger is currently the top vote-getter in Nevada County with 40-point-three percent of the vote compared to Dahle’s 35-point-two percent and Kiley’s ten-point-three percent. The next update of Nevada County numbers isn’t expected until tomorrow.
