Then there is the matter of election reporting and not being sure what system is being used and who's most reliable. At this minute:
Channel 11 has Halter over Lincoln 51-49 with 57 percent reporting.
Fox 16 has Halter over Lincoln 51-49 with 59 percent reporting
Channel 4 has Lincoln over Halter 52-48 with 49 percent reporting.
Channel 7 has Lincoln over Halter 51-49 with 46 percent reporting.
Democrat-Gazette has Lincoln over Halter 52-48 with 20 percent reporting.
Could it be that the Halter leads reflect arrival of his home counties? Could it also be that Pulaski and Washington counties and their big votes will be critical before it's over?
NUGGET: Gerard Matthews reports from Lincoln headquarters that Lincoln campaigners say they carried Garland County. Oh, nooooooo.
