Ain’t nothin’ closer than a tie. Debi Srail, Democrat, must be feeling pretty good tonight. After the first returns were posted, she trailed by only 5 votes.
When Auditor Pat McCarthy posted the second batch a little after 10:40 p.m., Srail picked up those five votes.
Incumbent Sen. Mike Carell, R-Lakewood, might be feeling a little tight around the collar about now.
