Yep! The race for San Bernardino 7th Ward city council seat is up in the air.

It sure is.

Wrong!

One has to scratch their heads when your read the spin in the local paper.

Incumbent Councilman Jim Mulvihill has won the election over Rialto Real estate Broker Scott Beard.

In order for Beard to prevail, in this afternoon’s final tally of the remaining 342 ballots, he would have to garner 225 of the the votes, or 66.8 percent, to edge out a one vote victory.

But to be blunt. In political terms, that’s a highly unlikely outcome.

The spin suspense sounds good nonetheless.
