Tovo Gracious in Victory
Kathie Tovo surely must have felt vindicated as she looked out over a sea of sweaty supporters during her victory party Saturday night at Scholz.

Shade's Quick Evening
Incumbent Place 3 Council Member Randi Shade began the evening expecting a "very close" runoff against challenger Kathie Tovo, but the early vote numbers came in 55% Tovo, 45% Shade – and the day's numbers were only worse. A little after 9pm, Shade thanked the voters, her supporters, her team, and her partner Kayla Shell, for a hard-fought campaign.

Tovo Defeats Shade
Kathie Tovo pretty obviously had it wrapped up when she took almost 55% of the early vote in her City Council run-off challenge to Randi Shade. Any hope the incumbent had of an Election Day turnaround quickly faded, as Tovo's numbers only improved: She took 58% of today's ballots. Final numbers: Tovo 23,911 (56%), Shade 18,594 (44%).

Tovo Takes Commanding Lead
Austin City Council Place 3 incumbent Randi Shade can probably start packing up her things. Unless there is a huge Election Day turnaround, Kathie Tovo will be moving in. Early voting numbers have Tovo at 55% with 13,640 votes, Shade at 45% with 11,176. A 2,500-vote shift is a bit much to ask.
