It's Foster, unofficial tally says



FINAL UPDATE: Foster wins in unofficial results (there's a few more mail ballots to review, election officials say).

Bill Foster 52.76% 24,228

Kathleen Ford 47.24% 21,691

UPDATE 4: Foster is on top with 112 of 115 precincts. Transition team is warming up.

UPDATE 3: Foster is pulling away from Ford with 106 precincts of 115 in. Final results will slow from here because elections officials say four polling places -- which can have more than one precinct -- have trouble sending results by modem.
