We now have 70 percent of the precincts reporting, and some of the supervisor races are still awy, way too close to call. Janet Reilly and political neophyte Mark Farrell are going to finish within a few percentage points — and Distrct 2 will come down to where the votes for Abraham Simmons, also a neophyte but in third place, wind up. In D 6, Jane Kim is about 600 votes ahead of Debra Walker, with Theresa Sparks well behind them; one of the two progressives will get this seat. Kim is in a strong position, but again: It all depends on the second- and third-place votes. James Keys, who had the endorsement of Chris Daly (and who Daly insisted to us was a serious candidate) has only 430 votes, or about 5 percent.

In D10, Tony Kelly, who had far less money than some other candidates, remains in the lead. Malia Cohen and Lynette Sweet are close behind, and Steve Moss, despite big money, is a distant 4th.

Scott Wiener is well ahead in D8, with 44 percent of the vote, and I’d say that one’s about over.
