Line prosecutor Jeffrey Rosen is hanging onto his lead over incumbent Santa Clara DA Dolores Carr.
The Santa Clara elections website updated the vote count this afternoon – Rosen’s ahead by 2,854 votes and has a hair’s breath more than fifty percent of the vote. There are still 9-10,000 ballots left to be counted, though. They require a lot more research, said Elma Rosas, a spokeswoman for the elections office. “We don’t know how many of those will actually be tallied,” she said.
The county has until July 6 to certify the election.
UPDATE: Carr has conceded.
