Holy Shit, Kshama Sawant Could Be On the Cusp of Victory: As of the last ballot drop at 8:30 p.m. last night, she's within 1,237 votes of unseating incumbent city council member Richard Conlin.

City Council Cozies Up to Ed Murray: Mike McGinn's numbers have ticked up recently, making it less of a blowout than initially thought, but Ed Murray is still on track to be the next mayor.
