Here’s your Sunday night update on state legislative races in Adams County. The numbers show how many times someone searching a candidate’s name has landed on this page. I’ve already acknowledged the survey’s lack of precision. I’m simply curious whether there’ll be any correlation between these numbers and actual votes on April 22.

In the Senate race to replace Terry Punt, Rich Alloway is closing the gap with Cathy Cresswell. Bob Curley remains a strong third, and thus a likely viable write-in candidate on the Democratic side. Jim Taylor is a distant fourth. Will Tallman maintains a commanding lead over Mike Rishel in the race to replace Steve Nickol

For Punt’s Senate seat:

  1. Cathy Cresswell: 23
  2. Rich Alloway: 22
  3. Bob Curley: 13
  4. Jim Taylor: 8

For Nickol’s House seat:

  1. Will Tallman: 14
  2. Mike Rishel: 2

Some searches combine names (eg “cresswell senate alloway”) and those are included in the total searches for each candidate.
