This is the early vote from Kaufman County:

Brown 1,765
Gent 1,516

This is really bad for Gent. He only lost the county by around 50 votes in 06. Now he has to carry Henderson County, which has more votes than Kaufman, and where Brown won by 500 votes in 06. I think Gent’s toast. I know that’s probably a premature call, but Kaufman was supposed to be his strength.
