Another report from the reader who calls himself Giles Morris:

We got to the polls at 5:15 after runs for coffee and donuts. The 25th is really going to be a contest between Danny Solis, Cuahutemoc Morfin, and Martha Padilla. Medrano is out, barred by the Supreme Court and I saw one of his guys putting up signs for Morfin. Rumor is that Medrano’s people will split between Morfin and working over in the 12th Ward race. The polling places are opening on time as far as I can tell. The 7th and 24th precincts will be hot, always the Pilsen precincts that get hot here.

One captain said to me, “It’s all about the coffee and donuts. That’s all it is.”
