Sali not ready to give in yet

Though only two precincts remain uncounted, GOP Congressman Bill Sali isn’t ready to concede defeat. “Well, I’d certainly rather be here talking about the stunning victory last night,” Sali said at a GOP press conference today. “Unfortunately, it’s a little close right now. There’s still a couple of precincts out there.” He said, “We’re going to wait and see how things turn out, make sure every ballot gets counted.”

Ben Ysursa, Idaho secretary of state, said counting of the last few precincts from Bonner County was going very slowly today. But, he said, “The trend in Bonner County favored Minnick over Sali, so I don’t think you’re going to have any further tightening of the race.”
