Powers' lead persists in race for countywide Walsh vacancy

With almost 93% of the City votes counted, Patrick Joseph Powers holds a slim lead over Judge Fredrick H. Bates, 220,226 to 213,778. But the margin is greater in the suburbs, where Powers' lead is around 39,000 votes, 175,354 to 137,729.

Powers was named on palm cards in at least two City wards today instead of Bates, though Bates was the officially slated candidate.
