Update: Newby, Wood, CdA Levies Winning Handily

Both Coeur d’Alene School District incumbents are coasting to victory tonight, according to SR colleague Meghann Cuniff, who just reported in from Election Central. With one of two precincts in his zone reporting, Trustee Vern Newby is pulling about 80% of the vote in his race with Brad St. John, 285 to 73. With 4 of 5 precincts reporting in the other race, Christie Wood is clobbering Stan Hess, 954 to 115. Wood told supporter Tony Stewart a few minutes ago: “Everyone needs a white supremacist as an opponent.” Meanwhile, with 16 of 20 precincts reporting in the levy elections, the two levies are passing with supermajorities of 73.9% and 69.8%.
