We’re going to press, so this won’t be in tomorrow’s issue:  Rick Rushton’s press conference – according to Someone Who Was There – was essentially an announcement that he’s not ready to make an announcement yet.   He has until late in the day Friday to request a recount(it looks like it won’t be automatic), and he is looking at his chances considering everything we mentioned earlier – military ballots, provisional ballots, etc.  Rushton said he talked to Konnie Lukes this morning, and congratulated her.
