Third time's the charm for Romanek in the 9th Subcircuit?

A five-way race for the Preston vacancy in the 9th Subcircuit -- a race in which every candidate was rated qualified or recommended (or better) by every bar association -- may end in victory for Abbey Fishman Romanek, whose bids for 9th Subcircuit vacancies fell short in 2010 (just short) and 2012.

Here are the county numbers:

Judge, 9th Subcircuit (Vacancy of Preston)    
Registered Voters: 140,974 Vote For 1  
Ballots Cast: 10,815
128 of 164 Precincts Reported
Turnout: 7.67%

% Votes
Michael Francis Otto (Democratic)
Abbey Fishman Romanek (Democratic)
Michael Alan Strom (Democratic)
Brian Alexander (Democratic)
Thomas M. Cushing (Democratic)

That's a 1,300 vote lead over Thomas M. Cushing, currently in second place in the suburban results.

Here are the City numbers:

DEM - Judge 9th Subcircuit - (Vac of Preston)
65 out of 94 precincts (69.15 %)

Michael Francis Otto47711.36 %
Abbey Fishman Romanek1,36932.60 %
Michael Alan Strom1,09726.12 %
Brian Alexander57013.57 %
Thomas M. Cushing68716.36 %

Romanek is ahead by nearly 300 votes in the City as well.

This may be her night.

In the other two 9th Subcircuit contests, Anjana Hansen is comfortably ahead in both city and suburban numbers in the race for the Meyer vacancy.

The race for the Goldberg vacancy is much closer.  Judge Jerry Esrig has an 800 vote cushion over Megan Goldish in the suburban returns, but Goldish is ahead of Esrig by roughly 1,500 votes or so in City returns.
