On to a Runoff
And it looks like the race for the vacant Assembly District 1 seat will be paired down to two candidates. Early returns have Democrat Elizabeth Betancourt as the front runner and Republican Megan Dahle as second. With 45 percent of precincts partially reporting, the evening begins with Bettencourt leading with 39.9 percent of the vote and Dahle chasing her with 36.5 percent. Patrick Henry Jones is a distant third; and Joe Turner and Lane Rickard rounding out the field. Since it appears no candidate will receive fifty pecent plus one vote, the top two will runoff in the General Election on November 5th.
The first set of Nevada County results followed the district trend.
Elizabeth Betancourt actually receiving 54 percent of the vote.
Megan Dahle getting 32.6 percent.
Patrick Henry Jones 6.7 percent
Joe Turner at 5.4 percent
Lane Rickard at 1.3 percent
