Final election results are in.
No big news, really -- Mark Lovelace slipped a bit in the Third District, but he still won the election outright. In the second, the late Roger Rodoni increased his lead a bit against close second-place challenger Clif Clendenen.
The only real change is that Journal favorite Jake Pickering actually slipped into last place in his race for a place on the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee, which means he doesn't get a seat after all. Bad luck? Or ...?
