UPDATE NOV. 7, 2018: In what’s likely to be the closest race in the region, Rep. Joe Fain’s lead over challenger Mona Das – which was 247 in Tuesday night’s first returns – has shrunk to just 90 votes.
This is a change of 36.4%.
For comparison, in the Nov., 2014 election, Fain handily beat challenger Carol Barber by over 9,300 votes.
This second round of results were posted on Wednesday, Nov. 7; the next update will be late Thursday afternoon, Nov. 8.
As we previously reported, Fain was accused of rape in 2007 by a woman named Candace Faber (read more here).
