Ramos the apparent winner in the race for the countywide Riley vacancy

I've been reporting all evening that Russell W. Hartigan was holding a lead over slated candidate Sandra G. Ramos in the race for the countywide Riley vacancy. The latest suburban totals have Hartigan with 48,076 votes to 43,308 for Ramos. But with 87.87% of the City vote counted, Ramos leads Hartigan 69,653 to 48,348.

Tracey J. Stokes seems destined to finish third, but her City totals were very strong: She's received 42,498 votes in the City of Chicago so far.
