District 35 still looks like it will be Republican

It appears The Tribune editorial board cannot do basic math. In the State Assembly race, Dawn Legg was the only Democrat in the race, while Jordan Cunningham was splitting the Republican vote with another candidate.

Add Cunningham’s

37.3 percent and Republican Steve LeBard’s 14.8 percent and the Republican consolidated vote was actually 52.1 percent (more than seven points above Legg).

Add Libertarian Dominic Rubini’s 3.0 percent of the vote and the likely Republican vote jumps to

55.1 percent.

Sorry, Tribune, but Assembly District 35 still looks to favor a Republican.
