Peters Furthers Lead Over Bilbray in 52nd Congressional Race
One of the nation’s closest Congressional races may soon be decided. Port of San Diego Commissioner Scott Peters padded his lead over Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Solana Beach, in vote counting today.
Peters now leads by 1,899 votes out of about 235,000 cast for the general election, a net gain of more than 500 votes since Friday.
Bilbray has been a top target of Democrats for years, but survived previous attempts to oust him. However, redistricting moved him into some unfamiliar inland territory for this re-election bid.
An estimated 260,000 provisional and mail-in ballots still need to be counted at the San Diego County Registrar of Voters office
