The Ruben Ramos campaign conveyed late optimism Election eve and one member of the campaign said they thought Ramos had a shot of winning along with one council candidate. (The council candidate wasn't named.) An unofficial operative for the Ramos campaign began texting around 7:30 pm mocking the voter turnout and saying Zimmer and her team were doomed. Horsey quickly responded letting him know turnout was similar, as that proved accurate when the private call of between 12,500 and 13,000 votes came in at 12,900, an increase over November 2009. The Ramos operative was given time for prayers and Da Horsey texted back "Prepare for the SWEEP!" At least he bought kleenex in advance.
After the polls closed, a quick retreat to the stable where an inner debate continued. Stay for results to post for the public or hoof it down to Zimmer HQ and hope nothing of importance occurs in the interim? As reported on MSV exclusively, it wasn't long before the blockbuster of the night would roll in foretelling the Reform sweep across the board. Marine View had suffered an earthquake, 9.0 plus on the Richter scale and First Ward Councilwoman Terry Castellano must have had a heart attack when she learned Team Zimmer had swept "her" towers and with it Kids First too!
