Dodd confident as counting continues

Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd on Thursday declared he’d captured a spot in the November runoff in Assembly District 4. He did so even as the gap between him and the third-place finisher, Davis Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk, narrowed to 522 votes.

Esparto farmer and retired Marine officer Charlie Schaupp remains in first place in the state’s first-ever open primary. His lead over Dodd grew from a single vote after election night to 422 on Thursday with the addition of votes from Colusa and Solano counties.

Dodd and Wolk are Democrats; Schaupp is a Republican.

Stacks of ballots remain  to be counted. They include an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 in Napa County, where Dodd has captured 46.8 percent of the vote, and 7,182 in Yolo County, where Wolk has fared best with 32.5 percent.

Dodd’s campaign said in a news release that it was a “statistical improbability” that he will finish out of the top two vote-getters based on how many uncounted ballots remained and which county’s voters cast them.

“The voters sent a clear message Tuesday,” Dodd said. “They agree with our campaign’s message that it’s time to work together to rebuild California, it’s time for progress, it’s time for a new direction in Sacramento.

“We also talked about the need for leadership, accountability to Californians and integrity. Voters embraced those ideals and we will continue to press the need to move California in the right direction all the way through the November campaign and beyond.”

Schaupp was traveling on Thursday. Wolk’s campaign declined comment.

In a Facebook message to supporters, Wolk wrote that, “We are still optimistic that, in the end, we’ll be moving on to November’s General Election!”

The left-leaning 4th district is divided between the counties of Yolo (33.5 percent of the district), Napa (30 percent), Sonoma (15 percent), Lake (13.5), Solano (7 percent) and Colusa (1 percent).

After Thursday, Dodd leads Wolk by 4,917 votes in Napa, 357 in Sonoma, 112 in Lake and 60 in Colusa and trails him by 4,244 in Yolo and 680 in Solano.

Schaupp is ahead of Wolk by 926 total votes. Schaupp leads Wolk by 916 in Napa, 733 in Solano, 494 in Colusa, 459 in Lake, 270 in Sonoma and trails him by 1,946 in Yolo.

Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza, a Democrat, and student Dustin Call of Davis, a Republican, finished in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

Still to be counted are: vote-by-mail ballots turned in on Election Day; provisional ballots, given to voters whose registration cannot immediately be established and must be investigated after Election Day; and damaged ballots, which by law must be duplicated by hand, then fed into vote-counting machines.

None of the counties has finalized its counts. They must be certified 30 days from Election Day.
