SHE OUTLASTS DEPUTY D.A. IN CLOSE RACE
Victoria Kolakowski made American social history earlier Wednesday morning by becoming the nation's first transgender judge. Kolakowski narrowly beat Alameda County Deputy District Attorney John Creighton with all precincts reporting.
The 49-year-old adminsitrative judge for the Calfornia Public Utilities Commission held off a strong surge by Creighton who closed a 14-point gap from the June primary.
UPDATE: at 11/3/10 at 2:05 a.m. - Kolakowski through her twitter feed is fretting whether her 3,330 vote lead over John Creighton is enough to withstand a flood of provisional ballots still uncounted.
