Was Pryce gloating a bit early?

Deborah Pryce stood on the stage at the republican "victory" party grinning broadly and claiming victory late last night. However this race remains too close to call.

Franklin County has yet to count 20,000 absentee ballots that came in Monday or later. In addition as I reported in this blog there is a unknown but high number of provisional ballots since poll workers in the campus area incorrectly directed voters to use a provisional ballot based on voter id and polling place confusion issues.

Pyrce currently shows a lead of about 4000 votes. Frankly I don't see that being overcome however every vote should be counted and when that happens then winner of this race can be declared and not before.
