One final item that didn’t quite make it into the live blog …
Shortly after 11:30 p.m., as Peter Carlisle was giving a final TV interview, Kirk Caldwell paid a visit to his party headquarters. (Carlisle’s HQ is at Ward Plaza, across the street from Ward Warehouse where Caldwell’s HQ is located in the old Buffet 100 restaurant).
Caldwell offered a congratulatory handshake to Carlisle amid a throng of about 100 Carlisle backers who waited with their candidate until the third printout.
Caldwell and his wife, Donna Tanoue, and their daughter, Maya, all exchanged congratulatory handshakes with Carlisle and his wife, Judy.
Said Carlisle: “I’ll seek your advice frequently in the future, I hope you’ll give it to me.”
