From page A2 | June 12, 2014 |

Voting results

* Current overall: Dodd 26.6%, Schaupp 25.7%, Wolk 24.2%, Krovoza 17.8%, Call 5.7%

* Yolo County final: Wolk 32.4%, Krovoza 28.5%, Schaupp 23.1%, Dodd 11.4%, Call 4.6%

Democrat Bill Dodd moved past Republican Charlie Schaupp into first place — and hopes dimmed for third-place Democrat Dan Wolk — as the number of uncounted Assembly District 4 votes dwindled on Wednesday.

With 20,047 votes in his column, Dodd led Schaupp by 669 and Wolk by 1,795 in the top-two primary.The gap between second and third stood at 1,126 votes.

The latest counting included all of Yolo County’s ballots — Wolk’s best chance to catch Dodd and Schaupp. It also included all but about 1,000 votes left in Napa County.

Dodd’s campaign expects him to win by 600 to 800 votes, when the dust clears. The candidate himself said he was shooting for a margin of 500.

“I’ve been feeling pretty confident all along, but it ain’t over until the final results,” Dodd said.

It was unclear just how many votes remain uncounted, both because there are provisional ballots left in the mix, which must be confirmed by elections officials, and because not all ballots come from inside the Assembly district.

Lake County says it has 5,263 total ballots remaining. Solano County has 1,147 ballots on hand, all provisional, and less than one-tenth of the county is inside the district. Sonoma County had 28,015 left to count after Election Night, but Dodd’s campaign estimated only about 3,150 are likely to be district votes.

Colusa County finished counting on June 5.

Dodd was aided by new votes from Napa, where he is a county supervisor. Of 9,505 votes added there, Dodd picked up 4,187, Schaupp 2,279 and Wolk 1,677.

“The people in Napa — I’ve worked for them for 14 years and they know me,” Dodd said. “They didn’t buy into all this negative campaigning. I think in some areas (of the district) they did.

“I look forward to the day when voters in Davis and Woodland know me and feel comfortable with me as their assemblyman.”

Four of the five candidates on the primary ballot were from Yolo County: Wolk, Davis’ mayor pro tem; Schaupp, an Esparto farmer and retired Marine officer; Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza, a Democrat; and legislative aide and UC Davis student Dustin Call, a Republican.

In Yolo County on Wednesday, Wolk added 1,708 votes, Schaupp 1,243 and Dodd 493.

Krovoza — who finished atop 25 of 36 Davis precincts — added 1,653 votes, keeping him in second in the county but still fourth overall. Call, who didn’t campaign, finished fifth in the county and districtwide.

Schaupp said in an email that he was “pleased to have the confidence of the voters going into to the fall election.”

“It was very unfortunate for both Dan Wolk and Joe Krovoza that (political action committees) that I consider GOP-leaning entered this race and did the independent expenditures muck-raking in order to shore up Bill Dodd on the Democratic side of the ticket. I fully understand that similar PAC spending from Democratic-leaning PACs was done to shore up Wolk’s chances,” said Schaupp, who also praised Krovoza for staying “above the fray.”

Wolk’s campaign declined comment.
