Ah well, I wasn’t expecting the Spanish Inquisition only a moderate loss and perhaps even an eked-out win. But a moderate loss it was:
Ralph W. Sarty Jr. (R) 1,199 53%
Katherine Marie Smith (D) 1,046 47%
Just 153 votes shy of a tie. Those crucial 153 votes, well, 154 for a win, never showed up. But it was a good fight, and a close race. Better than a moderate loss, actually. Youth did very well indeed against twice-its-age experience.
I don’t have the breakdown by town yet. That will be interesting to see. I’ll post it when I get it.
