With 86 percent of precincts reporting, Barber was winning about 52 percent of the vote while Kelly had 45 percent.We outnumber Democrats in the district and we still can't win the election? Both candidates have promised to run for a full term in the fall, setting up a possible November rematch in a redrawn district that is friendlier to Democrats. Republican voters outnumber Democratic voters by about 26,000 under the current map. That edge will narrow to about 2,000 under redistricting.
