Kazen Loss Official

Something I completely forgot about today, Kazen/Salinas Recount:

A recount of ballots today confirmed that County Court-at-Law No. 9 Judge Oscar Kazen will serve a single term after all, and will be replaced next year by political newcomer Laura Salinas.

"'Landslide Laura' wins by seven votes," Salinas joked following the recount.

Out of about 35,000 votes cast, she got seven more votes than Kazen in the March 7 Democratic primary.

Salinas' lead increases by one more vote. It'll be interesting to see what Laura Salinas does between now and 2010 to overcome her Dem-cred deficiency.
