Weathersbee ahead in tight Arundel state's attorney's contest

Absentee, provisional ballots being counted

November 04, 2010|By Andrea F. Siegel, The Baltimore Sun

In a race tighter than expected, longtime Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Frank Weathersbee was leading his Republican challenger, Eric Grannon, by nearly 4,000 votes, as more than 7,000 absentee ballots were being counted Thursday and Friday.

Grannon, 38, an attormey whose private practice largely handles antitrust and business matters, would have to garner more than 75 percent of the votes cast in absentee and provisional ballots to unseat Weathersbee, 66, who has 22 years on the job.

"We're pretty confident that the absentee votes will fall the way the precincts have," Weathersbee said Thursday.
