Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge, Richard Baldwin, and Portland lawyer Nena Cook will be in the November run-off for an open seat on Oregon's supreme court.
The latest count shows Baldwin with 31 percent of the vote. Nena Cook garnered 37 percent.
Cook said, "I think our message resonated with Oregonians. I think that maybe they determined with my 21 years of experience representing individuals and small businesses, maybe that's the voice that would strengthen our already extraordinarily talented Oregon Supreme Court."
Appeals Court Judge Tim Sercombe is only trailing Baldwin by about 4000 votes. But with the number of ballots left to be counted, he cannot make up the difference.
Two Supreme Court seats were filled in Tuesday's election.
Oregon's Appeals Court Justice Dave Brewer won the seat being vacated by Justice Robert Durham. And Oregon Supreme Court Justice Virginia Linder was re-elected.
