Angle's Race, By The Numbers
Here's how it went down.
Bangor: Parsons, 290 to 167. (Angle never does well here).
Bushkill: Parsons, 486 to 450 (Angle needed to win big here).
Chapman: Angle, 14 to 11.
East Bangor: Angle, 55 to 50.
Lehigh: Angle, 671 to 562. (Angle needed a larger win here)
Lower Mount Bethel: Parsons, 230 to 182. (Angle has tangled the past few years with Supervisors over land use ordinances)
Moore: Parsons, 786 to 600. (Angle traditionally wins here)
Pen Argyl: Parsons, 136 to 101. (Expected. Parsons works here and did live here).
Plainfield: Angle, 527 to 516. (Angle needed a bigger win here).
Portland: Angle, 45 to 37.
Roseto: Parsons, 129 to 108. (Angle was booed in May at an event in Roseto, over his Gracedale stand. He got some of them back, but not enough).
Upper Mount Bethel: Parsons, 646 to 591. (Angle alienated voters in his home district with his stand on GEO and his reluctance to spend County money to preserve environmentally sensitive land).
Upper Nazareth: Parsons, 323 to 208. (Angle usually loses here, but the margin is probably the result of his Gracedale stand).
Walnutport: Parsons, 92 to 90.
Washington: Parsons, 333 to 259.
Wind Gap: Parsons, 215 to 141. (Parson's home town).
