UPDATE (Thursday, May 21, 7:27 a.m. PT) — With more than half a million votes counted in the race for the Democratic nominee for Oregon secretary of state, barely 2,100 votes separate the top two contenders.
According to numbers released Wednesday, state Sen. Shemia Fagan was leading Sen. Mark Hass. The Oregonian/OregonLive had called the race in Hass' favor on Election Night, but the Beaverton-area lawmaker wasn't ready to declare victory then.
“We’re just not there yet,” he told OPB. “It’s just too close to call.”
