Uncounted-ballots leave DA race up in the air

Razor-thin lead of Challenger Jeff Rosen over incumbent District Attorney Dolores Carr could reverse

Disclosure that there were nearly 100,000 ballots yet to be counted on Wednesday in Santa Clara County has thrown the race for district attorney into a big question: Will challenger Jeff Rosen's 1,724-vote lead over incumbent District Attorney Dolores Carr evaporate?

Congratulations, Jeff on a well-deserved victory. And the incredibly small margin of victory, nearly 2,000 votes out of a couple hundred thousand, should remind us all that every vote does indeed matter.

I hoppy there is a big change and Mr Rosen will aggressively target the criminals that Delores failed to bring to justice under the 3 strikes law. I am very tired of the convicted felon class getting off. This is a change will all need.

Congratulation Mr. Rosen, now go get them!

Are you all sure this race is over. Did Carr really concede?

I hope that the new DA is more just and will not use his power to abuse other citizens and to further his own goals. I also wish he will stop the corruption of the Santa Clara county's police officers and the employees at the DA's office.

Way to go Jeff! I'm so happy for you! You ran an amazing campaign - fair and honest! Your team was exceptional and hardworking, a reflection of what your term as DA will be as well!

So Santa Clara has just discovered 100,000 uncounted mail in ballots. That includes mine, why hasn't it been counted? And, I voted for Josh Becker!!!

Good results. Ms. Carr had too many ethical issues.

Justice that sends victims of police misconduct to the morgue is dead.
May Dolores Carr never double park on thin ice again.

After what was done with Weston Healy, thank goodness she is gone.
