Sheriff candidate Napier says things could still go his way

Republican candidate for Pima County sheriff Mark Napier is changing his mind about conceding the race.

He tells Tucson News Now he plans to wait it out because the numbers could change.

He conceded the election earlier this week, but has learned that there are so many uncounted ballots, he's hoping things could still go his way.

He wants all voices to be heard.

On his Facebook page he says he is down only about 8,000 votes with 25 percent of the ballots cast in the race uncounted.

He writes, "There is still hope my friends."

Napier is trying to unseat democrat Clarence Dupnik who has been sheriff since 1980.
