Voters finally came through for the embattled Carlton School District on Tuesday. Nearly 60 percent voted “yes,” in favor of a new operating levy, with the final (unofficial) vote tally coming in at 1,240 in favor of the levy, 850 against.
Oberstar, a Democrat from Chisholm, watched an early lead dwindle throughout the night, and, in the end, Cravaack won 48 percent of the vote to Oberstar’s 47, with a spread of about 4,200 votes between them out of more than 270,000 cast.
