Rosario Rodriguez clings to 50% first place lead in Sac County Supervisor District 4 race


Taliies released this afternoon by Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections showed Rosario Rodriguez clinging to a 50 percent first-place standing. Rodriguez, a Folsom City Council member, is one of three candidates vying to replace Sue Frost as the District 4 representative on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. 

Rodriguez has 24,550 votes or 50.8 percent of the votes counted. Trailing Rodriguez is Citrus Heights City Councilmember Bret Daniels, with 13,207 votes, or 27.33 percent, and Braden Murphy, with 1,569 votes, or 21.87 percent. 

If Rodriguez maintains a 50 percent plus one vote advantage over her opponents, she will win the seat. If she falls below that, the top two finishers will advance to the November election. 

Even if Rodriguez slips below 5 percent, she will likely win the seat in November. Given Murphy's status as a progressive Democrat, Daniels is unlikely to gain any of his supporters in a race against Rodriguez, who, like Daniels, is a conservative Republican. 

The next tally update will be Friday, March 15. There are 83,866 uncounted votes countywide.

Rodriguez was endorsed by County Supervisors Pat Hume, Rich Desmond, Frost, several law enforcement groups, and a slew of Republicans.
