Another View of County Races in the Dem Primary

For whatever educational purpose its worth, I thought I'd look at the other primaries around the county as they played out within two of the contested primaries in my neck of the wood. First, however, the county has some updated math on the outcome in HD137 ...

HD137 - Final
----------------------------
Joe Madden ..... 391 (21.8%)
Gene Wu ........ 773 (43.1%)
Jamaal Smith ... 431 (24.1%)
Sarah Winkler .. 197 (11.0%)
----------------------------
Undervote ...... 100 ( 5.3%)

As for the rest, there certainly seem to be some interesting nuggets in here. Palmer's countywide margin was suggestive that Kirkland underperformed across a far greater spectrum. Looking outside of these two districts, Kirkland performed a healthier 65% in HD134, 54.8% in HD148 and 52.5% in HD133. But he got only 40.5% in HD144, which has another contested primary, and 37.7% in HD143, which is another Hispanic area which did not have a contested primary. The message to me seems to be that relying on inside-the-loop votes only seems to go so far.

Any other number-crunching that strikes anyone's interest, feel free to ponder ...
