The race is on

Mike Allen and Jon Snyder are virtually tied in tonight’s primary election tally for Spokane City Council.

Though Allen is in second place by a hair, he has some reason to feel good about the numbers. Kristina Sabestinas finished a strong third, and her conservative supporters may not feel comfortable backing Snyder, who was endorsed by the local Democratic Party.

In an interview tonight, Snyder noted two things when asked if he’s worried that about Sabestinas voters. One, he hopes to do well among those who voted for former City Councilman Steve Eugster, who finished fourth. Two, the pool of voters will be much bigger in the general election.

Snyder, of course, has reason to smile, too: His campaign war chest is significantly bigger than Allen’s.
