Pan maintains first place, Cofer moves to second place in close Sacramento mayoral race

In tallies posted this afternoon by Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections, Dr. Richard Pan M.D. maintained his first place standing, However, the big surprise is Dr. Flo Cofer M.D. moved from fourth to second place.

With Cofer's move up, Steve Hansen dropped from second to third place and Kevin McCarty moved from third to fourth place. The fifth place candidate, Jose Antonio Avina II and sixth place candidate Julius M. Engel remain unchanged.

Of the four top candidates, Cofer is the only one not to previously or currently hold elected office and is a first time candidate. McCarty is current member of the California Assembly, Pan served in the State Senate before being termed out in 2022 and Hanson was a Sacramento City Council member who lost his position in 2020.

While the three of the four top candidates changed rankings, they are in a statical tie. Pan has 23.93 percent with 12,495 votes, Cofer has 23.26 percent with 12,146 votes, Hansen has 22.89 percent with 11,950 votes and McCarty has 22.58 percent with 11,790 votes.

The next updates is on Tuesday, March 12. The top two finishers will advance to the November general election.
