Ohio House 10th: Cintron Jr (D) Appears NOT Headed for Close Victory [UPDATED]

In a seven-person Democratic primary in the Ohio House 10th District, which includes downtown Cleveland and parts of the the east and west sides of the city, it looks like Nelson Cintron Jr will eke out a narrow victory, despite having been ousted from his City Council position last year(80.57% of precincts reporting):

Nelson Cintron Jr
722 - 18.27%

Bill Newsome
686 - 17.36%

Eugene R. Miller
648 - 16.40%

Marilyn Bagley
584 - 14.78%

Freddie Moore
489 - 12.38%

Jocelyn L. Travis
441 - 11.16%

Ronnie B. Jones
381 - 9.64%

The lowest vote-getter was the candidate endorsed by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

An acquaintance suggested that Cintron won this race because he attracted Hispanic voters while the African-American vote was split aomng other candidates.

UPDATE: Appearances can be deceiving. New data from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections turns the tables on Cintron (93 of 104 precincts reporting):

EUGENE R. MILLER 912
BILL NEWSOME 861
NELSON CINTRON, JR. 828
FREDDIE MOORE 810
MARILYN BAGLEY 645
JOCELYN L. TRAVIS 616
RONNIE B. JONES 461

I think this time I'll wait a bit before saying who appears to be winning.

2nd UPDATE: This is wild. With all precincts reporting, but absentee ballots not added, Cintron has dropped into fourth place:

EUGENE R. MILLER 1006
FREDDIE MOORE 942
BILL NEWSOME 940
NELSON CINTRON, JR. 892
MARILYN BAGLEY 695
JOCELYN L. TRAVIS 666
RONNIE B. JONES 496

3rd UPDATE: The numbers have changed somewhat, but absentee ballots are still not included:

EUGENE R. MILLER 1072
FREDDIE MOORE 984
BILL NEWSOME 979
NELSON CINTRON, JR. 956
MARILYN BAGLEY 730
JOCELYN L. TRAVIS 706
RONNIE B. JONES 522

Jocelyn L Travis and her daughter are the most disgusting people I've ever met in my life.
