RESULTS: Blue Wave Stops at Bedford

Sanborns, fellow Republicans, sweep Bedford vote.

Update: (1:00 a.m.): Republican Andy Sanborn has won the District 9 Senate race by less than one-percent (210 votes). The Lee Nyquist campaign indicated recount is likely. Meanwhile, as of press time, Bedford Republican Bob Burns was trailing Manchester Democrat Chris Pappas by less than 5,000 votes with 22 of 30 precincts reporting in the Executive Council District 4 race.

Update (11:00 p.m.): Republicans have swept the vote in Bedford, including all seven New Hampshire House of Representative seats up for grabs. And in the Executive Council (District 4) and NH Senate (District 9) races, Bedford voters gave big boosts to Bob Burns and Andy Sanborn respectively, though both races are still very much up for grabs. Updated results below.

Update (10:30 p.m.): Bedford results are in and we are updating the charts below as we speak. We feel it's important to note that Laurie Sanborn has taken the Amherst/Bedford house seat and Andy Sandborn just opened up a big lead, with Bedford's help, over Lee Nyquist, though the candidates await results from 11 District 9 towns.

Update (9:45 p.m.): Laurie Sanborn has taken Amherst over Amherst resident Len Gerzon. That's good news for Sanborn as Bedford typically leans heavily Republican. Results below.

My wife and I voted for Ron Paul, and I imagine others in Bedford did as well. Could the editors at the Bedford Patch please confirm this? I wrote in "Congressman Ron Paul," which should have been very clear to the vote counters.
