City Council Candidate Who Didn't Cast A Vote For Himself Loses By 1 Vote


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Cliff Farmer, you really should have voted. He's the city council candidate from Hoxie, Ark., we told you about last week. He did not cast a vote in his own election, and it ended in a tie. Well, yesterday, he lost the tiebreaking roll of the dice. Farmer's wife told The New York Times that her husband had told her, make sure you vote. If I lose by one vote, it's going to be on you. It is not on her. She voted for her husband.
