Dr. Flo Cofer extends lead in close Sacramento mayoral primary race; McCarty moves to second by a slim margin

Tallies released this afternoon show Dr. Flo Cofer extending her first-place lead in the Sacramento mayoral race.

Cofer, who had 26 percent of the votes cast on Tuesday, has built on her lead by securing 28 percent of the votes. Cofer has 26,207 votes compared to second-place candidate Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, who has 20,269 votes for 21 percent.

Former Assemblymember Dr. Richard Pan, who was in first place on election night, is 262 votes behind McCarty and trailing in third place behind him is 20,107 votes for 21 percent. Pan is 262 votes behind McCarty.

Falling to fourth place from his third place status on Tuesday, March 12, in former Sacramento City Councilmember Steve Hansen, who has 19,738 votes for 21 percent. The fifth-place candidate is Jose Antonio Avina II who has six percent of the votes with 5,619 votes. 

The county has less than 27,000 county-wide ballots left to count. Given those ballots are countywide, it would appear likely the Cofer will have won one of the top two positions for the November runoff.

With the other three main candidates in a statistical tie and fourth-place Hansen trailing second-place McCarty by 531 votes, the race for the other top two candidates is up for grabs.
