Updated, FINAL: Race to replace Mark Foley a nail-biter ...

With three jurisdictions reporting (out of 8), Republican Joe Negron leads Dem Tim Mahoney by less than 1500 votes for the House seat vacated by Mark Foley, who resigned in the masturgate scandal.

Negron's name isn't on the ballot -- all those people are checking "Mark Foley" on whatever voting device they're using.

Results here.

OK, Mahoney's pulled ahead.

Update: Mahoney wins a squeaker, 50.6% to Negron's 49.4%.
